xx Six Elements (a must have for Genesis fans)
« Thread started on: Feb 21st, 2012, 05:32am »

SIX ELEMENTS are hailed from Atlanta (USA). Their debut 'Primary Elements' is a very accomplished album with old Genesis as the dominant influence, Pink Floyd and Camel like another flavour. wink It scores great in terms of playing, production and presentation. Lead singer Stanley Whitaker (ex-Happy the Man) has a definite Peter Gabriel timbre to voice. Dave DeMarco (former mate from Oblivion Sun) makes guitar howl in the way we know from Steve Hackett. And keyboard player Michael (Misha) Shengaout is certainly from Tony Banks school, providing plenty of solos as well as sympho prog backdrops. All material has a strong resemblance to the period of 'Nursery Crime'/Foxtrot'/'SEBTP'. cool

This is an album that can grab you from the first instant to make feel like you're listening to something special, in the best traditions of Golden era. You have the excitement and then the wonder of great discovery. But it's really sad to know that the band comes only with 39 minutes of magic... huh

I love everything Stan Whitaker is involved with. I was hoping there would be another Oblivion Sun release, but this will do just fine. Like it very much. I highly recommend anything by Happy The Man, plus the side projects Stan has been involved with - Pedal Giant Animals and Oblivion Sun. Great stuff! cool

I actually have Oblivion Sun, but haven't listened to it yet. And... I have never heard anything by Happy The Man. (Yes, I am ashamed to admit this...)

The samples for this album sound pretty nice though. Thanks for sharing. smiley

Thanks for this, Marygold. Not only had I not heard of Six Elements, I'd never heard of Oblivion Sun, either.

(And I love Happy The Man...)

I just got this CD in the mail a couple days ago, but haven't been able to listen to it yet. It does sound promising though, and reviews have been good. Thank you for the heads up Marygold.
