Review: And now for something completely different. Bezar’s voice comes in singing a melody full of unusual intervals, with perfect vibrato and good enunciation. You would be right to think this sounds like a trained voice, but it’s taken to places opera singers don’t go. There are choruses of background singers. The lyrics are clever and full of imagery. The backing musicians are immersed in both jazz and progressive rock, and navigate the song’s complex harmonic structure with natural ease
