"Tony Arnold's amazing "
'Adventurer's Club' album is like the sonic love child of a Ménage à trois between Tangerine Dream, Jean Michel Jarre and Pink Floyd."
- Will Viharo, www.thrillville.net
"Quite awe inspiring, to be honest, as the textures and arrangements used are often quite inventive." Scott Homewood, www.rockandrollreport.com
Matt Howarth of Sonic Curiosity writes: "This release from 2011 features 77 minutes of adventurous progressive music. The album opens with a gritty version of Morricone’s theme from The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. This version transforms the hauntingly familiar tune with growling guitar, agile percussion, and inventive electronic embellishments seeping from niches all over the place.
Arnold’s guitar work is evolving, getting slicker and more adventurous. His normal twang sensibilities are expanding into mandolin-esque territory, with delightful results. The overall riffs are still powerful, ringing with a crisp clarity. The electronics are similarly becoming more deft, cleverly sneaking undercurrents into the mix.
Keyboards remain a constant, delivering slippery chords that slither between the other instruments with serpentine agility. The percussion remains snappy and nimble, generating peppy locomotion. A surprise appearance by horns in one track, where the brass lends a jazzy flair to the song.
These compositions alternate between raucous rockish tunes and haunting instrumental outings, the latter crafted to instill a smirking unease in the listener, evoking unexplored territory for members of the Adventurers Club to venture into with brave hearts. The last track (at 16 minutes long) excellently explores this ominous milieu." www.soniccuriosity.com
