Sky Architect from Holland was a very nice and pleasent surprise for me when their first album issued in 2010 Excavations of the mind pop in the musical market. Deeply influenced by giants from the '70s like Gentle Giant, Genesis but also incorporated some elements from "newer" generation of band let's say Spock's Beard, Sky Architect meleted those influence in a really pleasent, highly complex prog rock album full of intresting moments. This is the type of prog rock music that needing repeted listnings to fully catch the whole atmosphere. In some parts the instrumental sections are absolutly complicated to the extremes like opening 20 min pieces Deep Chasm, amazing musicianship and overall ideas, the complexity of the passages can envy every already established prog band in this field, impressive really. The title track is another highlight. The band combined very eficient Gentle Giant complicated moves to the symphonic parts of Genesis and added some more of their own to really created something worth investigated. Very strong album, not many bands pretend to have such skills and ideas, but Sky Architect really manage to come with a very enjoyble melodic yet very complex pieces of prog. Nice art work.3.5 stars
