4 stars Well here is a fresh new band from Ottawa,Canada with their new cd DIAGRAMMA who will be one of the top 10 for 2007. I love it=good quality-nice recording-good voices-nice guitars-powerful bass-excellent drums -short tracks-long tracks instrumental pieces ect... It have everything for everyone.Some Zappa-Yes-Genesis-Gentle Giant-Rush-Pink Floyd But they have their own style it's not a clone of the great bands that I mentionned earlier it's new and fresh not a copy of another prog band.Just listen to the title track Diagramma a 20 min masterpiece (that track alone worth the price of the cd) Threads a nice Rush & Pink Floyd song - Three Valley Gap a beautiful instrumental la Genesis & Yes Tempra a great jazz-fusion piece - Hiding in Waiting a nice prog commercial song - Arachnophobia a superb instrumental track with a hint of Gentle Giant (my favorite of the album) - Awakened a good prog rock song with few turnovers.You cannot go wrong with this one=4 stars for a great debut album from The Rebel Wheel (with this new line-up ) a few years ago they release a self title cd The Rebel Wheel.They only thing I would suggest is to put more of Angie Macivor voice and sax in their music.But nevertheless it's a great album = one of the best of 2007.
