3 stars The Tangent is one of those bands where you never know what they will bring to the table. Since The Music That Died Alone from 2003, which is to this day my favorite album from the band, they roamed trough various sub genres of prog and delivered cool music to the listener. Auto Reconnaissance is their 11'th studio release and it delivers exactly what you expect from the band, a very different path from their previous albums The Slow Rust and Proxy. The album throughout gives that jazzy feel with cool guitar work and all in all not a bad release. Jinxed in Jersey is a fun song with satiric lyrics, but it's too long for this kind of song. The highlight of the album for me is Lie Back & Think of England , which delivers all the power of the band, truly great eclectic prog with The tangent flavor.
