Olive Mess
Olive Mess "Gramercy"
Olive Mess "Gramercy"

This fantastic CD from Latvia (former USSR) is simply unique in the progressive rock world. Soprano voice, keys, bass guitar, drums, electric & acoustic guitars, and a fellow who plays baroque guitar & archlute! Despite the instrumentation which may lead you to think they sound like Gryphon and despite the fact that there is a certain element of early Renaissance classical music or Slavic folk music in their sound - Olive Mess are certainly a progressive rock band. Elements of Present, King Crimson, The Enid, Gnidrilog, Renaissance, Julverne, Ensemble Nimbus, Henry Cow, Art Bears, Samlas, a.o. are woven tightly into their very original sound. Long tracks, superb arrangements, and stellar playing highlight this fine release from the French label Soleil Zeuhl. (They dropped the 'Zeuhl' portion of the name, calling the label simply 'Soleil' for this release. Appropriate, since despite my references to Present & Ensemble Nimbus above, this is certainly not a zeuhl music release!) Classically trained singer Ilze Paegle is a fine addition to this top-notch prog band. This is serious music for serious listeners. And serious listeners will be amply rewarded! [Soleil Zeuhl]
