3 stars NOT OTHERWISE SPECIFIED was the moniker chosen by US composer and multi-instrumentalist Craig Kerley when he returned from a self-described 15 year hiatus as a composer and performer in 2008. And in the late spring of 2011 his return to the arts was finalized with the release of "Judgment", the end result following three years of composing and recording.

While firmly rooted in early 90's progressive metal, "Judgment" is a creation that includes a fair amount of stylistic details from other parts of the progressive rock realm too. Due to that, as well as the inclusion of a liberal amount of symphonic progressive rock flourishes, I suspect that fans of bands like Magic Pie might be something of a key audience for this release. In particular those amongst them who also tend to enjoy the likes of Dream Theater and, at least to some extent, Porcupine Tree.
