This one has been one of my most anticipated releases of the year. I've already expressed how much i enjoy this band in the past, and was very interested to see how they would follow up after their amazing debut. After a fair few listens i am a little dissapointed. It seems they have dimmed down the spacey Floyd influence and upped the modern day IDM glitchy disco sound. I'm not sure whether or not this direction was taken for more mainstream media attention, but i would of much rathered to see them build and expand apon that modern day prog-rock approach they had going.
All is not lost though. What is gone in delicious spacey interludes is made up with a tight flowing piece that ultimate packs a harder, and quicker punch. The multi-vocal harmonies are still as pleasant as ever. We previously got a glimpse at a few of the tracks on the live Nearfest recording, it's interesting to hear how they have been slightly tinkered with since then.
It will be interesting to see where PRR go next in the future. All in all a decent record, but truth be told i was hoping for something else.
Feel free to stop by and check out some of the goodies that have passed through my ears throughout the last few years. Delve into the archive and find something from every which era/genre. I more or less post psych/prog/folk/fusion stuff, although i do like to mix things up from time to time. Please leave a request or a general message in my chatbox, i always enjoy reading your feedback.
I'd also like to add that i think we should all be supporting these artists and the amazing work they do by buying the actual records or going to shows etc. So consider this a preview, if you enjoy what you find here, go buy it. Oh, and if anyone at any time wants me to take an album/link down from this page just shoot me an email or leave a comment in the desired post.
