This is my first !! Encounter with Dutch proggers SKY ARCHITECT that is!! The opening track "Wasteland" reminds me of Muse at their best, but only 5 minutes into the tune these brilliant musicians show´s another side to their excellent musical excursions, second half of the tune turns into a somewhat dark sinister theme ! As mentioned I have heard of Sky Architect but never heard them! I must say my immediate impression is very good, this is what the new prog generation should sound like!! This brilliant band has a vast array of musical weapons and talent and they are not afraid to use them. This is, to me nothing less than a masterpiece of an album !! You the proghead, get everything here, there are ballad like tunes, heavy chord thundering, time signatures, complex music intervals blended with airy beauty and sinister thematic sequences, blistering guitar soli, brilliant instrumental excellence overall and fine vocals! This release comes with ALL you could ask for in a masterpiece progalbum...so yes you guessed it..it goes straight into my private collection!!
This my friends, is a must hear and consequently a must have and I just know you will agree, after you have heard the album!! Truly a wonderful album, that made my replay button cry !!
Me?! Im off to search for earlier Sky Architect albums !! Ok ?! "talk" to you later !!
What´s that ? Fav tracks you ask...well..honestly all of them really !! GO !!
