This solo album by excellent drummer Steve Hughes (ex- Big Big train - Enid - Kino) really is a little gem!! With brilliant vocals (and lyrics) by Sean Filkins , sounding a lot like Gabriel and or Fish certain places!! Music wise, the album is filled with time signatures and musical breaks,great prog themes, enough to make every progfriend happy! Sometimes, even so that you will have to catch your breath between tracks! But of course everything is settling down after the 2 opening tracks, though not for long!! This outing is every prog friends wet dream, I kid you not! if there ever were a must hear prog album and subsequently a must own, this is the one guys! Almost 80 minutes of sheer prog bliss, what more do you want?!
The contents herein are mostly old school inspired prog, but there a plenty of new ideas , variation and angles to be had also.
Other than Hughes and Filkins musical talent displayed here, you also get the great guitars of one J.C.Strand (?!) ..the beautiful voice of Sarah Feeney and violin by Maciej Zolnowski.
I highly recommend this album to all of you whom like their progmusic like they used to make it and then some!!
Skip lunch, go buy this gem instead!!
Oh and great coverart work incl. fine booklet.
