5 stars I know of Disconnect as one of their members is local to where I live. I've heard each of their albums including this newest release, thanks to meeting one of their members (Erich) in person at his live solo gigs. From their first album I was impressed with their ability to do what they do considering they consist of two guys who collaborate over a great distance and somehow make it all work. It seems like with each album they keep gathering more speed. As a performing musician myself, I have been amazed at what they've done in the past. On this album, the two long tracks (Falling Man & Twistng the Knife) are really an album to themselves and move from one section to the next, fitting perfectly together. I lost a nephew in the 9/11 attacks, so when I first heard the opening minutes of Falling Man I was really moved by much that I nearly stopped playing the song. Glad I stuck with it as it is truly an epic track. Twisting the Knife is an equally powerful song musically, I hear Floyd influences on this one and even some non prog influences (Stevie Ray Vaughan style solo in one section). Not to ignore the other three songs but those two really stand out. The instrumental (Inside Job) sounds like a bit of Tool mixed with a bit of early King Crimson. Really excellent stuff and well executed.
