"Without having the boring side of a new age album, "Returning Jesus" offers a real moment of escape in a musical world where serenity is queen."

For those who don't know, No-Man is the reunion of Tim Bowness and Porcupine Tree leader Steven Wilson. Far from what the latter can do in his band, "Returning Jesus" represents a different musical approach to what can frequently be found in the field of progressive music.

Indeed, it is not a question of complex, technical or fast music but on the contrary of a simplified stylistic and sound research. The result of this work is an album that breathes peace and quiet. Any sign of aggressiveness or imperfection is totally excluded, as well from the instrumental point of view as from the vocal or chordal point of view. 

Rhythms are therefore very slow and supported by light percussions (Drums - Jumbe). The sounds are deliberately chosen to provoke a feeling of fullness and calm. Trumpet, synths in the background delivering floating chords or in the foreground playing a few notes, strings, guitars add up to allow the listener to abandon himself totally in the universe he will have imagined while listening to this music.

Without having the boring side of a new age album, "Returning Jesus" offers a real moment of escape in a musical world where serenity is queen.
