4 stars Farpoint is a six member band from South Carolina, USA giving us some very interesting, simple and direct progressive rock full of light and energy. Their approach is reminiscent of folk progressive with a touch of hard country rock. Some songs remind me of Mostly Autumn, the Moody Blues and some guitar riffs of Nick Barrett of Pendragon. Hence, we have here some hard edge rock mixed with impressive vocals and symphonic progressive. Still, there is some unique blend of music here. Straight guitars playing the very high notes with almost no distortion, great female vocalist in Dana Oxendine) with an alternating male vocalist in the likes of Ritchie Havens (Clark Boone), excellent twelve string guitar, bass and drums with wonderful flute. The music is simple, straight and to the point. The musicians of Farpoint mean serious business and it shows in the energy, the straight style, and in the writing and lyrics. This album has some excellent and wonderful songs such as Sojourn, Crying in the Rain, O Lost and Ashley's song. If you want more than 74 min of progressive rock music with some variety in songs, this is it. I am anxious to see the next album from this band.
