Prog Reviewer
3 stars Those people who appreciate Toby Driver's talent can be divided into two main groups: motW fans and KD aficionados. I must confess, I like maudlin of the Well much more and I miss those days and their fantastic music. KAYO DOT takes me somewhere beyond, it's definitely far more experimental, avantgarde, progressive, challenging, bla-bla-bla, but with these experimentations Toby sometimes misses the very thing essential in Music: the Music itself. Art for Art's sake had never been a good and enjoyable thing but rather an experiment with audience or a desire to shock. Five long tracks, atmospheric, nervous, heavy, worrying, emotional and sometimes simply sick, ranging from acoustic guitar ballad to drone noise, but with these details (for proggers to admire and proclaim Toby as the new avant messiah) the whole thing is still missing. So, KAYO DOT is hard to recommend; I've grown to LIKE this album (to some extent), but still find it to be less superior to 'Dowsing...'. Some tracks are good, some parts are amazing, but some aren't, and this is natural to have such opinion about the thing which is SO eclectic. 3.5 stars and...yes, recommended. But beware and don't expect ANYTHING before you listen to it with your own ears
