WOW what a great surprise this album (and band) is, it is true progmusic with nods and hints to old school prog, but most certainly also to the newer winds that blows these days.
It is fresh, daring, bold and still with an anchor firmly grounded in classic prog!! First track, the fine opener : "Travelling Man" sounds like Genesis, had they gone further after the Hackett and Gabriel divorce (if you will pardon the phrase) ..it is brilliant!!
Second track entitled:"Different Skies" which actually is a suite, with a duration time of 33.30 minutes, divided into several sequences with several moods, styles, variations and musical origins..such as glimpses of oriental orchestrations at one end and the use of vocoder plus grand pompous themes at the other! This has to be heard to be believed ! A bit over 33 minutes of sheer brilliance...in all, really very original !!
Third and final track "Wasps" for starters has some Pink Floydish moods a la "MORE" (the soundtrack) period semi acoustic with fine vocal arrangements a tune that builds and gradually becomes spacier !! What an album...what a band!! I am very impressed!!
Highest rating...almost...saving half a star for their (hopefully) next release!!Oh, the cover art, really doesnt do the music justice!
But the music...WHOA...you need this album. Go on treat yourself and buy it!!
