4 stars The band SKY would appeal to those who enjoy the instrumental works of the Alan Parsons Project, early symphonic period of Mike Oldfield and '80s Camel. Entirely instrumental, almost like a distant sounding Discipline-era King Crimson without the dissonance of Mr. Fripp and oddball lyrics of Adrien Belew. Better yet, what the California Guitar Trio might sound like by collaborating with the Alan Parrsons Project. Very proper and organized sounding instrumentals. The album gets better as it moves along and really starts to take off with _Cannonball_ then concludes with the sprawling _When Opposites Meet_ which has familiar themes pop in and out throughout its 20 minutes. The bonus track _Dies Irae_ is similar to the track _Vrooom_(King Crimson '95) in composition style, however - without the sheets of sound. 3.5 really, but gets a 4 rating to bump it up a bit here. The second SKY album is similar, but can't grab my attention for the entire 2 LP set. Stick with the first SKY. If you need more, then by all means get SKY 2 as well. Points of reference for production values similar to SKY in *sound* in the year 1978 are BANCO's _Di Terra_ and Alan Parson Project's Pyramid.
