An album that that includes pleasant sonic surprises that will leave you absolutely longing for more.

Now to be precise, '4' is actually Soul Secret's third album! It's obviously a concept piece and one that is heavily steeped in a Classical Progressive and modern musical movements. These five maestros have dug deep in the ocean of sonic expression and fashioned an excellent release!
Within '4' SS bring to the fore modern techniques that include passages of spoken word as well as the traditional vocalisations that we come to expect from a musical group. These elements intertwine with the highest degree of musicianship that builds and combines into a compelling story and journey that touches on every aspect of music.

Having formed in 2004, SS have been able to grow despite numerous line-up changes and growing a degree or two higher with each recording project. As the group grew stronger and realised more confidence in their art, their music grew more complicated and complex. Although the soundscapes of Progressive Rock are expansive, SS keeps pushing at the borders and expanding beyond them – '4' is the result of this musical exploration and maturity.

This French five-piece is made up of drums, keyboards/synths, guitars, bass and unique vocals as well as displaying a keen sense of production as well. This trait, coupled with their creative flare and unique outlook, has been fully realised on this disc and apparently this is their longest and most complete record yet. It is an album that tells a bold story that is equally encased within bold, powerful musical passages that, at times, is also Soulful.

Almost everything is contained within this album; from passages of Jazz to hard-hitting Grunge to stellar expressions of Rock. It is Progressive in nature whilst also being cinematic in expression. '4' cannot be listened to lightly – the music and the lyrics, whether sung or spoken, consistently draws you in. It's an album that is totally immersive and well it should be as there is so much in each composition.

Another way of stating this is that '4' is a total Progressive musical experience – one which will set the desire within you to want to experience it over and over as well as being one that will create the desire to experience their live performances as well!

I mentioned earlier that within these musical expressions we are hearing, lies a complicated story. One that reveals itself bit by bit after repeated listens and does so with the musical passages that are so colossal. From Jazz-influenced movements to heavy and razor sharp Rock and then propelled to whimsical areas of just vocal and guitar musings, Soul Secret's third offering is an intense musical journey; an album that that includes pleasant sonic surprises that will leave you absolutely longing for more!
