3 stars Emkog Records multi-project sampler

I'm not a big fan of samplers and compilations because I believe albums need to be heard in their full and appropriate context, so I'll be very brief here. Dan Britton's sampler is as good as they come, it is vast and thoughtful with plenty to digest. It may well be helpful in directing the Britton noob on where to begin. Deluge Grander, a rich, complex, and ambitious modern symphonic project is my favorite of Dan's groups so far based on these samples. "The Form of the Good" was one of the prog highlights of 2009. I'll need to hear other complete albums by the other bands before commenting too much on them. The final track is really cool, a 20-minute self-described "blob" of early visions for projects as far away as 2015 (Dan is either joking with us, or he's an obsessive planner!) I find all of Britton's work to be of very high quality but quite demanding, and confess I don't take enough non-RPI time to investigate more fully. This will have to be remedied at some point in the future. Find this sampler and begin your own investigation of Emkog Records.
