5 stars Wow!!! I hadn't heard of Kettlespider before, yet there is a Facebook music group site that specifically is for Progressive Rock acts here in Australia. I have made comments on there and I was observed by one member of Kettlespider who, thankfully, asked me to have a listen to their latest release simply titled Kettlespider. Wow, what a revelation. If you knew my personal history of discovering Prog in the mid to late 1970s just as Punk overruled the genre and in this country took Prog off the map. The days of sitting around discussing details of every inch of the groove on a long epic rock song or dare I even mention, an instrumental, was long gone!!! Punk brought to the world 2 chord wonders and sometimes one minute and fifty seven second songs back again, and, took us away from more complex time signatures or virtuoso musicianship. Australia virtually took the British anti- everything that came before too serious. Many great acts that I adored and loved folded due to a glut of Punk and New Wave bands appearing everywhere. So I am so glad that Kettlespider here in 2017 and back in 2012 have been holding the long held torch for Progressive Rock Music for an Australian and overseas audience. This album is a must in anyone's collection and the fact they do instrumentals is a big step into normally vocal Progressive bands! If you want to hear that Australian bands are up there on the World Stage then invest in this great band with many more albums to come and great music!!!! Worthwhile in any market, hopefully this will take their career to greater heights!!!👍❤
