Nathan Mahl's albums are released every six/seven years, which puts their fans to the test and doesn't exactly help the Canadian band to leave a lasting impression on you. Only great music leaves marks that have not been blown away even after such periods of time. But the quartet is also a long way from that with its current work. The formation around multi-instrumentalist and singer Guy LeBlanc presents itself unusually hard. His retro prog is dominated by guitars, which transport a jazzy as well as a hard rocky feeling. In addition there are symphonic and Canterbury elements. All this isn't necessarily innovative, but at least entertaining - if the guitar doesn't pose. The songs with singing will be a battle of spirits. Some may find it too necessary, others welcome it as a change from the instrumental pieces. Infinite Light" also features Camel mastermind Andrew Latimer. Which is surprising, though. Because Justify has nothing to do with his contemplative Artrock.
