3 stars Singularity is a new a new USA progrock four piece band, their instrumentation ranges from keyboards and electric guitars to flute, cello and acoustic guitar. This third CD delivers the short songs Mongrel (mid-tempo with fiery guitar and sparkling piano), XOT (compelling atmosphere with string interplay between guitar and keyboards), Patchquilt (intro with warm piano and vocals, then moving with howling guitar and fluent drums) and Kaleidoscope (first dreamy with piano and vocals, then a slow rhythm with sensitive guitar) and two long compositions I will tell you more about. First Smile (almost 15 minutes): it starts with pleasant acoustic guitar work, then the moods shift from dreamy with flute and violin-Mellotron to bombastic with porpulsive guitar riffs and fat synthesizer flights, the final part contains wonderful violin-Mellotron waves, twanging acoustic guitar and slow synthesizer runs, topped by a great build-up guitar solo that carry us away to Progheaven! Finally the long and alternating track Islands (at about 20 minutes): we can enjoy majestic Grand piano, howling electric guitar, lush Hammond, soaring strings with flute and during the dynamic final part it's progrock party with propulsive guitar riffs and drums and a long, quite fiery guitar solo. It sounds as a perfect closing section to a very pleasant and melodic CD, very elaborate and quite original sounding. My rating: 3,5 starts.
