4 stars Now this is a fantastic album full of highly energetic, well crafted songs with some superb musicianship. The TANGENT are a kind of "supergroup" with Roine Stolt, Zoltan Csorsz and Jonas Reingold (LOWER KINGS) , David Jackson (VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR) and Andy Tillison (PARALLEL OR 90 DEGREES). Of course with 3 members of the FLOWER KINGS hearing allusions to their music and KAIPA's is unavoidable. However with Tillison's song writing and the cast of other musicians The TANGENT take this music into a different zone. This mighty band offers the listener 16 unyielding tracks of progressive-rock sprinkled with the occasional jazz-fusion. Lyrics are sung by Stolt and Tillison and both have great voices. The album consists of three different suites, "In Darkest Dreams," "The Canterbury Sequence" and "The Music That Died Alone".Each section offers passionate guitar playing and thoughtful keyboard performances. Jackson's sax and flute contributions fit to enahcne the music even that much more making this album very hard not to love. Overall a great album full of deep progressive passages.
