Album Notes
“The Gift of Tears” is the long expected new album by Ulysses. After the debut album “Symbioses” in 2003 expectations where high for his new album. “The Gift of Tears” takes off where “Symbioses” left you.

This is the masterpiece on which the progressive rock fans have been waiting for. When the band released its debute, critics saw Ulysses as the new big thing in the genre. With ‘The gift of tears’ Ulysses released yet another great album and will prove the critics right.

Ulysses has proven to be a band that appeals to a broad audience. This album will appeal to music fans from symphonic rock to progressive metal music. The unique combination of the neo-prog influenced keyboardplayer Ron Mozer and metal oriënted guitarist Sylvester Vogelenzang de Jong, gives Ulysses its very distinctive sound.

The 7 tracks will stick to you like glue, each song with its own identity and story. The songs on the album vary from barebone piano ballads to virtuose progressive epic songs. Orchestrations and mulit-vocalharmonies make the album stand out in its genre. On serveral songs guest vocalists make an appearance, just like Mike di Sarro of Los Angeles based Prymary.

Besides great music the album tells real stories about real people. This has enabled Ulysses to incorporate real emotions into their compositions. Greeve and Joy are the emotions everybody has to coop with during life, on this album Ulysses succeeded in bringing these emotions alive in their music.
