4 stars Very accomplished modern prog album. Fright Pig blend classic prog (especially Genesis organ and guitar sounds) with neo prog and contemporary prog-related rock (very strong similarities to Muse in places). All the tracks on the album have melodic and rhythmic instrumental complexity - manna from heaven for prog fans. Pig Maillion (the nom de plume of the lead singer) has a strong voice, a little like Gabriel in places. Like a lot of modern prog, the guitar riffage has a metal edge in places, creating a beefy (or perhaps porky) robustness to the overall sound. I like this album very much because it has strong melodies which give real depth and substance to the work. Consequently it creates a silk purse out of silk - not a sow's ear.
