From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars I am so thrilled that there is music like this at this point in time. Not your typical Prog metal, and not your standard Retro Prog. Just good ole progressive music thats a little different and for the here and now. If we need some reference point, think Coheed and Cambria and Mars Volta, mixed with a little Beach Boys and Gentle Giant. Still, this is very unique stuff, and not too derivative of anyone. One of my favs for 2009 for sure.

I feel sorry for Proj-Jester who gave it a 1* review, for his anability to hear the quality of this music, and how much the Prog world needs refreshing tunes like this these days. If you're going to discount this music for being too derivative, well take 90% of the bands on this site and throw them out with the bathwater too.

This is the sort of stuff that will turn youngsters on to Prog, and open their ears much more than most standard Prog Metal ever could. The Dear Hunter is doing Prog a great service. Keep it up.
