Great review, which pretty much sums up how I feel about them, except I think 27 is just better than Metamorphosis (which used to be my favourite album.) The Yes feel is no coincidence; Yes are one of Rob's favourite bands so the influence is definitely there and Chris (the guitarist) does a damned goo Howe-esq solo! There's a promo video of them doing Wondrous Stories floating around which is well worth checking out!Another great release by this woefully under appreciated band. This makes four stellar surround releases from a band that I don't seem to know anyone who knows about. They always remind me of what I love about Yes (who are my all time favorites) and I always think any Yes fan should give these guys (and girl) a listen. The track Pearl is incredible! A little different than the others with an almost Prog-blues feel to it. Very beautiful music combined with a great guitar solo. But the whole thing is great and I would highly recommend to any Progressive rock fans. For that matter, I'd recommend all four surround releases. My personal favorite is probably Metamorphosis, but they are all excellent.
My shipment must have gotten sidetracked and after not showing up I called and they apologized and they sent me their live cd "On Our Way to Who Knows Where" to make up for it. And it really made me realize how much I've become a fan of this band. I have listened to them almost exclusively through their surround releases, but playing the cd in the car really brought out how good I think their music is. Again, to me, this is the closest any band gets to Yes and what I love about them. Probably one of the top 2 or 3 acts I've discovered over the last decade or so. And it's another one I found on this site because of the surround sound mix.
Shouldn't be that late; where did you order it from?MAn, this sucks! All I read is praises about the album and my copy has not arrived yet! and I preordered!!! When was the release date...I cant even remember! It has been 1 or 2 months already? Im starting to worry where my copy is...
