“Tag Attack” is the strong progressive beginning of this CD; it has captivated immediately my attention. It is a mix of early and neo prog with a great beat and a fine guitar solo. It is in the spirit of KC at its best; perhaps my favourite of this opus. “Step Aside” is more prog metal oriented with its guitar solo right at the beginning. Then it evolves and slowly becomes more complex and fascinating with great sax and a melodic guitar solo. With “Out of Season”, it is the piano who guides us to an ambiance both strange and subtle. It sounds more experimental than the other pieces of the CD, even though it remains melodic and easy to listen to. It ends on a more jazzy structure, the piano closes it nicely. “Totally Greek” surprised me. It made me strongly think of New Age music and Enya, due to the keys and the vocals. It is a more pop oriented song; I dare to say it is soothing music. Robin Taylor is a master of many genres. Near the end, prog rock emerges suddenly with a new beat and the strong presence of the guitar, it is almost another song. “Sandwich” made me thinks vaguely of Soft Machine VII. I really love this track, and it is certainly one of the best on this CD. “Aspx” closes this album with another fascinating progressive track.
I think this album is a must for progressive music lovers. With each album Robin Taylor proves his mastery. That music merits to be heard!
