3 stars Second album Emergent issued in 2003 by this discret band Gordian Knot even featuring well known musicians from prog field is a fairly good offer but in places lacks some soul. Some top notch musicians here, besides the head of the band Sean Malone ex Cynic we have some respected and outstanding musicians like Steve Hackett, Bill Bruford, Sean Reinert ex Death and Paul Masvidal aswell from Death fame, Jim Matheos from Fates warning ,so big line up, but what about the music. Well, the music is quite experimental jazz fusion with progressive metal elements added in the mix, the result is ok, but some passages are aimless IMO. The musicianship is excellent like on Muttersprache by far the best tune from the album, the rest are ok nothing more nothing less. Technical playing , but with aimless arrangements. 3 stars.
