3 stars The first album of "The Tangent" ("The Music That Died Alone") blew me away the minute I listened to it. It was so powerful and original, a real prog-treat! Expectations were high, but compared to this first album "The World That We Drive Through" is a bit of a disappointment. The songs are all written by Andy Tillison (PO90). Eventhough there are three Flower Kings around, their influence is certainly not prominent. No, this album is clearly Tillison's spotlight. There are some really strong songs here: "Skipping The Distance" and "A Gap In The Night" which is the longest track on the album (over 18 minutes). I think the only two real highlights on the album. Overall a good album, especially when you like the way Tillison is playing the keyboards. Also a very technical high-standing album, but what do you want from this list of players. I don't understand what Sam Baine is doing among them: she isn't half as gifted as all the other great names gathered in The Tangent. The artwork (Ed Unitsky) is beautiful!!
