4 stars I have listened to The Box many times all the way through since I purchased it at Bandcamp, ( a great place by the way to hear bands that are not well known but still quite good). This is a fine effort from Ian Gordan, a long concept album about somebody Gordan calls Jason who seems to be trying to face his troubles and learn why he feels the way he feels. It is really quite a nice story, kind of reminds me of a story from a fantasy novel. The music is well played throughout, this is another of these one man band albums that are making their way more and more to today's music market, with modern technology these people can make their living room their studio, and the sound quality is really good on most of them that I have heard, I mean everybody seems to be doing it this way now, going from young talent like Ian Gordan all the way to established stars like Steve Hackett. I really like The Box, and can not wait to hear what comes next from this guy, it gives me hope for music when I see these younger people like Ian making quality prog. music, all is not lost out there. I rate this one at 4 1/2 stars, can't post it that way but that is how I rate it.
RJN | 4/5 |
