4 stars Combination Head is one of the intristing bands from newer generation of progressive rock bands, started somewhere around 2002 last decade and releasing so far 3 albums, each one with fresh ideas and competent songwritting. Progress? is their second release and a great one I must tell you. This time face the first who was an instrumental album Progress? has some vocal lines, but sounds very good for sure. Combination Head delivers a combination, of neo prog arrangements, but much looser and more varied then most of the bands from this style and some hitts that goes to ELP music. The result is very elastic in musical terms, not a copy of ELP for sure and not a copy of neo prg bands that influence ethe genre in early years. A mature band with inteligent musicianship, crafted pieces and above all some very nice playing. This time beside organ driven prog that was on first album, here the band is concentrated in some parts on rock atmosphere, some mellow parts but all interluded very well. Crafted musicians all of them, speciualy I like the keybords how sounded here and Paul Burgess the drumer, very elastic playing and with plenty of good chops. All pieces stands as great not a weak moment here, even the pieces are not lenghy all have around 5 min and under, the musicianship and overall ideas are excellent and is one of the pleasent albums that needs a far better view for sure. I will give 4 stars, excellent work buy this almost discrete band from UK. Recommend, the album comes in digipack format with a great booklet inside.
