3 stars "Narrow-Caster" is the 3rd full-length studio album by US progressive rock act 3rDegree and the first album by the band since "Human Interest Story (1996)" (the band broke up in 1997 and it wasnīt until 2005 that they got back together). "Narrow-Caster" was independently released and is available through various internet music retailers.

3rDegree play a pop oriented and catchy progressive rock style on "Narrow-Caster". The tracks are all between 3 and 5 minutes long and vers/chorus structured with an emphasis on memorable choruses. The sound production is polished and clean and suits the music well. The band are very well playing and itīs obvious that these guys arenīt new to playing and writing music. The vocals by George Dobbs are strong and often layered with harmony vocals which remind me slightly of Kingīs X. Other than that Iīd say Rush and maybe Spockīs Beard at their most pop oriented are references too.

"Narrow-Caster" is neither the most progressive nor the most revolutionizing album out there, but itīs a damn solid release that Iīm sure will please fans of more pop oriented and accessible progressive rock. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is warranted.

UMUR | 3/5 |
