5 stars Last year I got a package from Dreadnaught containing their most recent EP (Have A Drink With Dreadnaught, reviewed here: progarchives.com/Review.asp?id=1088015) and their classic album The American Standard (2001). The low point is that both were cardboard envelopes, but the music, oh the music!

Have A Drink With Dreadnaught (2013) is an amazing collection of 5 VERY different songs. So I was a bit excited to try out The American Standard (2001). And oh boy, what an album!

Is VERY hard to point a finger on what Dreadnaught did here, IT IS Prog, but at the same time is crazy and full of every genre you could possibly imagine. There's a sense of urgency in the album, a sense of limitless music, a fearless attempt of doing something different, unusual and out of the ordinary. The American Standard (2001) is Progressive in the true sense of the word.

The trio formed by Robert M. Lord (bass, synthesizer and background vocals), Richard R. Habib (drums, percussion and vocals) and Justin S. Walton (electric and acoustic guitars, piano, saxophone, organ and vocals) entered to the hall of my favorite bands. Now I'll go straight to Musica En Flagrante (2004) without any trace of hesitation. HIGHLY recommended! By the way, you can listen/buy all of their albums on their Bandcamp: dreadnaughtmusic.bandcamp.com/
