3 stars Fright Pig is one of the newer prog bands of the scene that got last year 2013 lots of recognitions world wide, rave reviews and all. Well, definetly I needed to check this one out, since I'm a prog lover and colector. So, what we have here a debut named Out of the barnyard with a very good cover art and art work overall, nice booklet - made by already famous Ed Unitsky. What about the music, most of the time ok, even great in places, something between ELP in keyboards department with loud guitars - one of the problems of the album to me, symphonic prog going towards a more harder edge in parts, a combination between Kansas and ELP. A little problem is to my ears, that the guitars are to loud most of the time in comparation with the rest of the instruments and another thing is that the arrangements are little chaotic on some pieces, no clear direction. As a whole I like the album, no particular moments are excellent but pieces like instrumentals Incident at Pembroke, Barque at the Lune or Presumido my fav of the album shows big potential with catchy passages and nice interplay between musicians. I think Fright Pig definetly will make some more ripples in prog circles in years to come, besides their music the names they use are quite funny. Good album but far from excellent. 3 stars rounded to 3.5 because of those instrumentals.
