Prog Reviewer
4 stars Ever run into a band that you really couldn't describe musically? I have with this group. RIO seems to be the closest thing I can tie Make a Rising to; they really defy categorisation. INFINITE ELLIPSE AND HEAD WITH OPEN FONTANEL displays Make a Rising honing their style of music.

''Sneffels Yokul'' opens with a bang after an off-key acapella section. Probably one of the jumpiest tunes you'll find in the RIO corner, it quickly sweeps into an ever morphing track (slightly annoying) until it settles into quiet piano music for a few tracks. ''All One or None'' is a particularly moving track. ''Peaceful Paths'' is one of the upper highlights encompassing many facets of the bands sound before giving into a sea shanty in ''Bradford's Big Boatride''.

The second half kicks off with another highlight in ''Transmutation'', one of the louder and more embryonic pieces here. The next three tracks highlight the band's ability to create ethereal soundscapes and psychedelic backdrops before exploding into a big band excursion at the end of ''How's 'Bout a Love Supreme''. The two ''Woodsong'' pieces are more organic and sound like how they're named.

If you really want a unique listening experience, then lend your ears to Make a Rising; you'll find nothing else like it, and it's worth the investigation.

Sinusoid | 4/5 |
