Yes, I know it’s Prog. But what would you expect ? I’ve stopped pandering to the neutral ground. I will now post music I love. If you don’t like it, fair enough. For those with open minds, then you may discover something.
This is Neo-Prog which is vocal driven rather than my usual instrumental driven Prog. Cleverly written lyrics which bring to mind early Genesis. In fact, they sound like what I imagine Genesis would have sounded like today if Peter Gabriel and Steve Hackett had stayed and allowed the band to mature. No, the singer doesn’t sound like Gabriel or Phil Collins but the feel is there.
Deep and meaningful it can be and maybe a little earnest in places but it gels well and takes an interesting journey.
It’s worth noting that it’s a 2 disc set. The first disc ties well together but the second doesn’t quite fit. I like it but it could have been released as a separate album. I advise listening to the first and assessing the album on that.
I don’t know this Terry but, as with all your suggestions, I am more than happy to give it a listen, expectant that I will be introduced to yet another ground breaking band worthy of deeper exploration, in the never ending quest to further my musical appreciation, enrich my soul and quench my creative listening thirst.
