4 stars It is hard to write good lengthy instrumental heavy prog music, as opposed to say, instrumental post rock music. But these guys pull it off. The sound on Fantasy Absent Reason is sometimes playful, but more often brooding, early 70s retro, with a buzzy guitar and vintage-sounding keys. Points of reference would be familiar - the likes of King Crimson, Rush and even the Allman Brothers Band, So , the band plays at the intersection of heavy rock, blues and fusion, which I guess would be safest way to do it, but also audibly most accessible. Best songs the starter, 16-minute title track, the happy and jam-like Brother Jackj McDuff, and Utopia Planitia, which is probably the most complex track, with a flute added to the beginning and the end of the song.
