This American instrumental progband is very interesting, these 4 fine musicians from Minneapolis delivers complex, dark & sinister tunes with high powered sonic attacks and sequences of beauty. I am pleasantly surprised (not everything that lands on my desk has this high musical quality level) if I were to complain about anything here it would be that the album is too short, I wanna hear more!! So I have pushed the play button repeatedly and daily over the last 7-8 days. Not everybody are into instrumental prog music, I know .... Still I dare you in that category not to like this fine outing, you must try it out!! Me I love instrumental prog as much as I love bands with vocals and great harmonies. The whole band shines here: Mark Ilaug on superb guitars (Electric & acoustic)/Kyle Lund on bass/ Rikki Davenport on Drums and percussion & Chris Malmgren on keyboards (Hammond B3, piano) delivering five excellent tunes that intrigues and impresses, one of the best instrumental prog albums I have heard in a very very long time!!
This album goes straight into my private collection!! Highly recommended to all serious prog friends. Now while I am calmly waiting for their next album, let me just push that replay button!!
I must mention the great cover art (by Johnny Jones) which suits the music perfectly ....wonderfully strange, exiting and beautiful!
