about

"Quite awe inspiring, to be honest, as the textures and arrangements used are often quite inventive." Scott Homewood, www.rockandrollreport.com

Matt Howarth of www.soniccuriosity.com writes: "This release from 2011 features 72 minutes of quirky music. Progressive tunes with a wistful edge to them. The electronics are a mixed bag, featuring textures and quirky effects. Keyboards are the predominant means of usage here, with nimble-fingered melodies slipping throughout the mix, lending peppy embellishment. While a number of the keys pursue inventive cadence, there are instances of straightforward piano.

Guitars provide edgy contributions, often in the form of eccentric riffs. There are conventional rock guitar bits too, in which the notes ring with searing crispness. Percussion is quite frequent, establishing locomotion for the songs.

Sometimes the rhythms are snappy and almost frenetic. At other times, the tempos are solemn, presenting beats rich with somber timbre. Only a few of the tracks feature vocals.

These compositions are tailored to instill a nostalgic mood (although the days-of-yore evoked may not be from your old calendar). This mood stimulates a yearning for what might have been, producing tuneage from a realm in which progressive rock was a mainstay and not a sidereal genre. Many of the tracks are wonderful instrumental excursions in melodic weirdness."
