4 stars Dreadnaught is an entity unknown for me until I got the promo for this double CD compilation.

With a career spanning more than 10 years now they have to be seen as veterans, and their chosen musical field is one they are pretty much alone in exploring, seemingly. The music is progressive and experimental; but with aspects to the music rarely found in other progressive acts.

Most songs are short; and the progressive elements are numerous changes in pace, style and mood in all songs; as ell as mixing elements from different types of music. The staggering 28 tracks on this CD goes from blues based quirky rock to industrial electronica in style, with influences from indie rock, glam rock and country thrown in the mix. Quirky guitar playing is a central element in all songs, and a chunky hard bass in many.

Musically I'd guess fans of Frank Zappa and similar artists will find this quite appealing; as well as others enjoying music not confined to conventional styles and structures.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
