Present - A Great Inhumane Adventure (2005)

The second live album from this Belgian avant-garde band.

Seventy minutes of dark claustrophobic avant-garde prog is what we get here. The music is still melodic, but also very dark. The music is dissonant and pretty cinematic at times. The music is wholly instrumental. References are both King Crimson and Univers Zero.

The sound is very good throughout and the band does a very good job. The album also includes the great twenty-three minutes long Promenade au Fond d'un Canal from their debut album. The rest of this album is not that good. But this song is alone worthy purchase of this album. An album that does not add anything new to the scene. It is still a good album.
