Progressive Rock CD Reviews

Cyrille Verdeaux Pascal Menetrey

Tribal Hybrid Concept

Review by Gary Hill

This isn’t progressive rock in the classic sense, but it does have ties to that sound. It’s quite electronic, but there is also a lot of Native American and other world music sound built into it. Comparisons to Enigma are often appropriate. Whatever genre you feel this fits under, it’s worth checking out because it’s intriguing stuff.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2014  Volume 6 at

Track by Track Review
Terre Australe

With a bit of an Enigma vibe, this combines New Age, world music and more. It definitely has some space rock elements at play, too.

Raoni's Song
Although this isn’t dramatically different than the opener, it has a bit more energy.
Shawnee Froid
This one definitely has a Native American vibe. It’s great stuff, too.    
Trance Fusion
I love the energetic electronic groove to this thing.    
Organic Trance
This is quite a beautiful piece. It’s very electronic, but it has a lot of sounds of nature and tribal elements at play.
Papou Pas Pris
There is a great world music meets electronica groove to this. 
Rain Dance
We’re definitely back into Native American territory with this number.
Aztec Tartare
This one is bouncy and fun.
Zeph Here
There is more of a space ambience to this piece. It does rock out more as it gets into more fusion-like territory later.
Tuva Bene
Energetic electronica is the concept here. There isn’t as much world music on this, but there is plenty of melody.
Trance Pire

Space music leads out here, but it gets more rhythmic later.

Soufi Dance
This is much more of a rhythmic piece.
Trance Connexion

 We’re definitely back into more Enigma like territory.

Amazon Corazon
Tribal elements, world music and more merge on this. It’s another that’s close to Enigma.
