about

Matt Howarth of www.soniccuriosity.com writes: "This release from 2012 features 75 minutes of unfettered prog rock. Once more, Arnold’s searing guitar and squealing electronics and nimble rhythms are put the purpose of generating entertaining prog rock tuneage.

The guitar produces a pyrotechnic array of glistening riffs, relentlessly striving to illuminate the night with their spry dazzle. The electronics are mainly harnessed by keyboards, delineating luscious riffs with slippery abandon. Crisp chords sweep into action, sliding through melodies of charming definition.

At times the keys adopt a grinding disposition, belting out melodies whose shrill nature matches the temperament of the pounding song. The percussion is exceptionally energetic here, as rhythms burst forth with thunderous beats crafted into compulsive tempos.

Often the rhythms become so frenetic that they communicate a riotous beat mania, urging the listener to throw off civilized conventions and stomp with wild abandon. Besides a few outbursts of background grunts, the music is devoid of any vocals.

Horns (probably synthetic, but their artificiality does nothing to diminish their rousing impact) blaze away with exciting passion. Arnold seems driven to pack each composition with an excess of elements, cramming a plethora of wondrous notes into each second and impressing them with the task of inflicting awesome delight upon the listener. And yet, despite the overabundance of components, these tunes possess a charismatic appeal severely characterized by melodies whose catchy nature is achieved with casual ease." www.soniccuriosity.com
