Album Notes
It's been a long effort to make this album, it started simple and came out grand. It's a life story, not necessarily all mine, but we all can find pages from our calendars in my tale. I've been told that, styles of Pink Floyd, Yes, Marillion, Genesis or Journey can be found here, I take it as a complement. Hope you'll judge for yourself. Enjoy, I know you'll like it.

The Best Album
Amazing Album , great music ,


Simply They - Calendar
New Canadian group under the moniker of SIMPLY THEY hits the scene, and their debut offer 'Calendar' is bound to cause a stir. Finding a great formula, this album moves across a range of pronounced nuances within the overall template of what may be described as the cross-over style; and thus provides sufficient diversity to keep the listener interested. Properly speaking, Simply They have managed to represent a tasty mixture of progressive tendencies, bombastic fervor, power of classic rock, dramatic pop sensibility, ethnic patterns, et al. The release features 16 tracks and spans over 60 minutes of supremely qualified material. . Now let's get down to individual cuts. The principal artistic merits of the opener ‘Day’ might be characterized like interaction between Styx and Karnataka (circa 'Delicate Flame Of Desire'). Both comparisons (while justified) are just the tip of the iceberg. Perhaps, I can append Yes as another point of reference. The mood changes on a muscular song ‘Day After’, heavily driven by formidable guitar loops. It would have graced any Kingdome Come album, i.e. gets homage to Led Zeppelin. For another contrast, a brief interlude ‘Beginner’ follows then. Next up, the staggering ballad ‘Sacrifice’ imbued with unforgettable passion. I do think that 'Epitaph' from legendary King Crimson provides a big influence here, in the context of grand effect. Of course, the listener (me in this case), can hear what he wants to, returning back to Golden era. Goosebumps! The brooding successor ‘Bullfight’ has a rather whimsical structure and occasionally brings some Spanish flavor decorated by the engaging female vocals. The album continues with a properly formed expression of mid-tempo ‘First Kiss’ which segues into a two-way piece titled ‘Halloween’. While its first half brings the tricky instrumental extravaganza, the second part fits to mellow mode featuring an emphasis on spectacular lead vocals, big choruses, excellent guitar performance and neat rhythm section. The keyboards are not overbearing here. From the musical standpoint, a follow up ‘Requiem’ is a smooth chapter which yet has a mellow Pink Floyd-kinda entrance. A few forays into Supertramp territory are also traced. But these Canadians are still willing to experiment and the plot '2 Minutes' delivers a psychedelic atmosphere. Then, ‘Face To Face’ that recalls Great White along with obscure hint to Saga legacy. By surprise, the midway of proceeding offers up pretty nice oriental motifs. The juxtapositions are presented in a peculiar endeavor that stands on its own. The next plot is an invigorating tune ‘So Far So Good’ that sticks to memory. ‘Hero’ bears some stylistic parallels to the Swiss band Gotthard. What's further? Being flawless in every respect, ‘You And Me’ is a hauntingly beautiful, heart-felt composition. It just takes my breath away!.. Subsequent ‘Beast And Beauty’ is a concise instrumental bridge which leads to the title track ‘Calendar’, slightly reminding of country-rock but not seeking to copy that. The whole set reaches its elegant final with relevant 'Goodbye'… So, all things considered. A sheer amount should be enough to seal the deal. There’s no doubt, worth the purchase.
