3 stars Very interesting instrumental american band. The Form Of the Good was my first taste of their sound and I found it quite impressive, although not altogether very pleasant. The musicians are obviously very skilled and brain master Dan Brixton is a creative writer. The orchestral arrangements are very strong and climatic, the band is obviously very influenced by King Crimson (from In The Court Of The Crimson King to Larks Tongues In Aspic, they cover them all), but they lack the sense of melody of that band and its balance between the simple and the avant guard. Some Yes and, to a much lesser extent, Genesis bits are also present.

The band often seems a little overshadowed by the arrangements, there are few solos from the band members other than Brixton keyboards, of course. The best track is the last one, The Form Of The Good, in which the musical build up actually goes somewhere and offers a hint that maybe better things may lie ahead for us. Production could be quite better too. As it is I found this record to be a good one, but more promising than anything else. I donīt know any other Brixton work so Iīm judging this album by itself only. My final rating: something between 2,5 to 3 stars.
