The Progmatist
5 stars 2-disc version

This is truly art that transcends time and place. It's music that rises above the sum of its parts. There is a real sense of emotional immersion here that seems to move the very music, itself. An almost improvisational ecstasy that loses itself in the passionate movements of the soul, only every note is so carefully chosen, so delicately played. Not every song works as well as others, but the end result here is pure brilliance. The several Marbles parts spread throughout the two discs serve as perfect segues between the various musical styles, and the album is book-ended by two of the most intensely genuine pieces of music I've ever heard. Music like this is so difficult to classify because it doesn't try to sound like something. It just dives headlong into the emotion and dwells there, all the while remembering that music is supposed to sound good. What more could you ask for?

The Progmatist | 5/5 |
