I had an idiotic smile on my face as I was listening to The Great Bazaar for the first time. The reason was simple. It was a smile of relief that the fears of this album being a disappointment were unfounded. Following up on something as brilliant as is Suspended Animation Dreams, is no easy feat. To some extent, Subterranean Masquerade have succeeded even though it took them 10 years to accomplish that. However, there's a but. There's always a but in such cases...

Deserves at least an 8, probably more after more spins.
Glad these guys are back =]

Agreed, although the album doesn't sound like it has been that long.

I love how it's reminiscent of prog classics, yet still sounds like something entirely of its own. Definitely a solid release.

> The closest I've come to figuring out what prevents The Great Bazaar from taking those final steps across to the magical frontier, is the overall sound of the album. For lack of a better description, it is somewhat lacking in weight and authority; doesn't sound full enough.

Sums up my feelings of the album from the review. Great stuff though nonetheless.

Just Finished with this one and I have to say, it really surprised me. I knew nothing about this group but I like the heavy trip and all the sound layers they deliver. Really like the arabic feel, reminds me of Opeth

I just, more or less, said the same thing in the review thread, with a picture supporting it. And now I see here that you also mentioned it.

It's kind of obvious though I'm not sure if it bears the same meaning as TDB

Yeah, I really like this. Much more than the debut! I guess this is more easy-listened...
