4 stars Many times a really solid prog (symphonic in particular) effort requires multiple listens before one can make a coherent and valid appraisal of what one hears. I found it not so with this marvelous debut by Moth Vellum. It drew me in and fascinated me, while swirling around my lobes, not to be taken in all at once, but in pieces and riffs. But the first dive was a highly pleasant one.

Subsequent listens have revealed more of the contemporary side of this band, and it, too, is extremely pleasant. There are 70's sensibilities here as well as more 21st century vibes. It is highly beneficial to listen to the entire recording from start to finish, although each track is a tasty hors douvres on their own.

Hare to tell what bands had the most influence here, the mix is so convoluted from any one source. You listen and decide.

4.5 stars
