4 stars "Tempest of Mutiny" is a rather typical Phideaux song. However, I hear a bit of The Decemberists in this moderate symphonic rocker, particularly in the swashbuckling lyrics and their delivery. Expect Mellotron, an ethereal middle passage with triumphant organ, and screeching lead guitar. The final phase shifts gears and launches into some quirky Gentle Giant enactment before revisiting the refrain. There is a fantastic degree of eclecticism presented here as well as a sense of fun. If anything, "Tempest of Mutiny" is a well-structured and well-performed lengthier piece that contains plenty to keep one engaged and entertained, and isn't that all we ask of our music?
Epignosis | 4/5 |
