ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Progressive rock influenced by Pink Floyd, Alan Parsons, and The Moody Blues. "Enlightened Horizon" picks up where the critically-acclaimed "The Constant That Remains" left off to once again transport the listener on a journey through progressive and ambient soundscapes. On "Enlightened Horizon," Jack Jeffery expands his musical palette by exploring different styles and influences including progressive rock, electronica (Global Rise, Ancient Truth, Continuum, Approaching the Starlight), straight-ahead rock and roll (Amazing Grace/The Consequence of Love), acoustic, and even bluegrass (The Road That Never Ends).

The enlightened journey begins here: aim for the horizon, and enjoy the trip.

Enlightened Horizon Reviews

“Lower the lights, add a scent to the room with agarbathi and let the mind float in the trippy ambience that is Jack Jeffery. Combining influences of blues rock with psychedelia and adding snatches of electronica and calming it all down gives the music a fascinating mysticism which can’t help but find a way into the brain.” — Emerging Indie Bands

“Jack Jeffery’s latest release is definitely full of enlightening tunes that are both vocal and instrumental. The mix of new age, electronic, dance, folk, rock, psych, and similar genres are all represented here. The poignancy of the new age symbolism and electronica is top-notch. Fans of Tangerine Dream, Fractal Cat, Brian Eno, Pink Floyd, and similar artists will love the music of Jack Jeffery.” — Independent Artist Buzz

“The latest release from Jeffery, Enlightened Horizon, is strong from the first track and never lets up.” — Matheson Kamin

“It should be a crime that Jack Jeffery has flown under the radar as a musician in this internet-fuelled age of information overload because with his last two albums – Enlightened Horizon especially – he has proved himself a daring and unconventional sound-sculptor and a solid songwriter that deserves your attention.” — Justin Kreitzer

“If Waters, Bowie and Lennon are names that mean anything to you, this is a must listen.” — Inforty.com

“You can find [influences like] Tangerine Dream or Kraftwerk and the early Pink Floyd or echoes of the electronic Vangelis and Alan Parsons.” —Babyblaue Prog Reviews

“Jack has incredible stories to tell and does them both with his soul bearing lyrics, powerfully melodic vocal croon and prowess on a plethora of instruments and keyboards. Proving that prog can still be innovative even while holding dear to your roots, this is some excellent ear-opening music.” — Music Morsels Reviews

“The songs embrace out of the box thinking and other elements that made me take notice. Take for instance one of the highlights of the album entitled “The Road That Never Ends.” The song doesn’t only contain some of the best vocal work by [Jeffery] but also combines banjo and guitar, which was quite unexpected but enjoyable.” — The Even Ground

“Jeffery has stepped it up a notch with Enlightened Horizon. If you are into [Pink Floyd, Kraftwerk, Neil Young, or the Beatles] or generally appreciate the mellower side of ‘70s psychedelic rock and electronic music there are many sonic delights to be had. Recommended! — Sea of Tranquility

“[Enlightened Horizon] is an ambitious album, with lots of different sounds on it. That makes listening to it sort of a journey, as well.” — Dan MacIntosh

“Jack Jeffery might play in the same ethereal meadows as Pink Floyd, but his muse is full of modern twists and turns that borrow from EDM and New Age styles.” — Wildy Haskell

“Enlightened Horizon is undoubtedly the work of someone who is steeped in early progressive rock and experimental music, and, bar a few clues here and there, if someone had handed me this album without saying anything about it, I would have fully expected it to be a little-known gem from the mid to late 70's that had somehow passed me by. Jack Jeffery has made a stand-out psychedelic album and put every piece of it together immaculately . . . .” — Remy’s Music & Film

“This is quite cool. The music ranges from Vangelis like music to territory like Enigma, Pink Floyd and more.” — Music Street Journal

“Keep your eye on [Enlightened Horizon] and, if you happen to pick it up, shelve it next to I Robot in your CD tower.” – The Daily Vault

“In this hour-long, 11-song trip, Jeffery will guide you into a world of mystical relaxation. So burn some incense, close your eyes, sit back, and allow Enlightened Horizon to take you on a journey of the mind.” — Alec Cunningham

“Jack Jeffery is a skilled musician and composer and Enlightened Horizon makes good use of those skills, seeing him craft multiple soundscapes that reflect his varied influences and musical prowess. Those musical worlds are bright and nuanced, the creativity compelling and the listening experience unique.” — Andrew Greenhalgh

“[W]ith this brilliant new album, Jack Jeffery stays walking with confidence on the musical path that he has been paving since his previous works. With “Enlightened Horizon”, he will aggregate more fans around the lovers of Electronic, Soft Progressive, and Bittersweet-Ballad Music, being highly recommended either for fans of “Alan Parsons”, “Brian Eno”, “Tangerine Dream”, “Kraftwerk”, “Jean Michel Jarre”, “No Man”, “NoSound”, “Pymlico”, or for appreciators of “Pink Floyd”, “The Moody Blues”, “Barclay James Harvest”, “Roger Waters”, “Rick Miller”, “Nick Drake”, “Gordon Giltrap”, and so on. — Progressive Rock & Progressive Metal

“Interesting compositions, surprisingly large state of diversity in instrumentation and technique.” — Keys & Chords
