Review
A totally wonderful listening experience of progressive rock at its very best. So imaginative and thoughtful in every respect the listener is taken on a journey of musical bliss throughout the entire nine tracks. There is so much variety in the construction of the music with twists and turns at every junction, it’s powerful driving percussion providing a backdrop for a veritable multi instrumental overlay of keyboards, guitars and even well considered multi saxophone interventions. This variety is further extended with beautifully executed vocals interwoven into the main fabric of the music and which are not, by any, means the main focal point of the individual tracks rather more they act as additional musical instruments completely enhancing the overall sound. At times though the vocals do take on a dramatic almost musical theatrical air. And if that is not all, the use of electronic sounds are incorporated here and there to add colour to the proceedings and are just so cleverly programmed in that they provide nice transitions between the various passages of music. There are many moments of powerful interplay when all of the instruments are in full flow with saxophone, keyboards and guitars all merging into a glorious cacophony of organised mayhem. The whole album is just so full of ""full on" excitement that the second you catch your breath you are immediately whisked off and taken on yet another musical excursion rather like a perpetual roller coaster. Each track is packed with different surprises at every musical junction and it all really moves along at an astounding pace with subtle time changes that are both imaginative and interesting.

Summary: A fantastic album of depth and complexity and although not immediately accessible it is a wonderfully progressive album full of twists and turns and is thoroughly enjoyable throughout all nine tracks.

The artwork is very colourful and depicts, what looks like, a bunch of ugly aliens at a picnic.

That's what they say about us...

All bands/artists and all moozik aficionados, if you have not joined Planet Of Prog on their fb page yet you might want to join them here too. They are unbiased, very honest sharing the music from the greats to the indie starting artists and what I love the most about them, there is no negativity (you'll not find any pompous selfrightous know it all full of know better and how sermons on their reviews) no matter who you are, all their reviews the bands are treated with utmost dignity even if the review is not most favorable, that review will be honest, not pompous and most in awe respectful of the artist's efforts. I love them, love this site. Join if you want to,I like them a lot!
