4 stars It's about the music.

This cd came to me out of the blue, I don't know the bands these guys came from other then some by name only (always more to discover). As an old guy I grew up on prog and all things rotating about it. Over the years I matured as a listener, growing from all technique to the love of good composition. Any of those things are often good enough to keep me listening but the combination is what I need to elevate a project to my short list. I think this cd has made it.

I love to sing along to great hooks and melodies and need to be entertained in between with hot rhythms and layers. Even with only a few listens I find myself wanting those refrains just around the bend, and bend they do so well.

Thought not yet sold on Dream Theatre, Spocks Beard or Flower Kings (and I've tried) I find myself drawn to Porcupine Tree, Tool, Kaipa and all the regulars). Frost is a great blend of all the aspects of DT, SB & FK's that I really do like. I also hear a little Trevor Rabin production trickery (always fun, almost assaltive). This is what happens when your main writer is the keyboardist/vocalist and probably spending waaay too much time in front of his Pro-Tools station. It sounds like the band is in charge and control and I'd bet they have quite a few more releases under that hood.

As a side note, I ventured on the web and found some video of these guys in rehearsal/studio goofing around and I love their energy as people, that's not an easy thing to say about many proggers out there who imagine themselves a cut above.

Honesty, musicianship, composition, how much more do I have to take!
