3 stars This is my first taste of The Tangent, and it was a... Pretty good taste.

The first song is one of the year's best. "Where Are They Now?" is just an amazing prog track that goes by in a flash, and shows these guys flexing their unique muscle. Amazing stuff.

They shift gears for "Paroxetine 20mg." We get some insane synths with a very jazzy groove. Very amazing old school-sounding track.

"Peru Dan Paris?" Simply beautiful. I felt like I was on vacation in France sipping on some coffee with a beret on my head and a sweet woman by my side. Transformative, brilliant prog.

"Company car?" Not bad...

And it continues downhill from here. The last two songs are just lackluster. This album, while much better than "Vision" by Martigan, suffers from the same problem of peaking at the first song, and then petering out halfway through. The last half of the album just fails to hold my attention.

Three stars. Definitely going to check out their older stuff.
