4 stars Dredg - Catch without Arms

I just listened to this disc this afternoon and I can't help but compare this disc to the album Effloresce by space rock band OCEANSIZE (brilliant album by the way). Not in such way as that the music is a lot alike, but both album tracks have this weird thing that they are complex non-commercial songs, but the vocal lines (and lot of instrumental parts) are haunting and have a high singalong rating so to speak. I can't help it, but the lyrics stay in your head all the time.

The songs on this album are a good blend between rock- and ballad like songs. There are some odd rhythms on the album and the song structures are quite complex, but still easily accessible. I played a couple of songs from this disc (Sangreal, Zebraskin and Jamasi vu - also my favourite tracks!) to my mates while we were on holiday and they all liked it (they normally listen to dance music and top 40 crap, but they liked it!

Is this the future of prog? Still maintaining the origins but becoming mainstream (unintentionally I suppose)
