3 stars As it usually goes, bands like CARPTREE rarely recognized by majority of Prog fans, have not much reviews but can be proud of strong though little fanbase. I remember getting their "Man Made Machine" from NotAProghead as a gift. I wasn't impressed first and put it aside. When I chanced to get "Insekt" I wasn't that much skeptic towards it. And it was a worthy addition to my collection!

CARPTREE is hard to recommend. They don't play epics, they have very modern sound, that may frighten most Retro Proggers, but what they undenialy can be proud with is a sense of atmosphere. They are very atmospherical, with their own recognizable manner and unquestionable melodic gift. The closest description is Peter Gabriel's "Up" played by H's MARILLION. But this is not your typical Neo Prog thing. It's dark and introvertive, with sudden orchestra outbursts that follow the whispering vocals and mellow Rhodes chords. I'd love to hear a real long epic from these guys, it would be marvelous I gues!!! 3.5 stars for now, but I keep exploring and hope to love them even more soon! Recommended after all!!!

4 stars Take notice.

For those who were too occupied at listening Octavarium and Deadwing, Carptree is giving you another chance, and this time seize it. The sea-green atmospheres masters from Sweden are back with an album that will finish in the final 5 of 2007, at least in MY countdown.

Carptree are so hard to describe, it became their calling card. Yeah, a cherry dark one with classy relief.

Man Made Machine was mechanical and cold, at the border of the industrial sound of veterans like Nine Inch Nails. Rejoice, Carptree is proving this time that it was not flash in the pan, but their true personnality and music credo.

On this album, you are invited to visit a domain wrapped around a deep, foggy cloud; inviting you into an office filled with insectology material­. But curiously, the office is empty and seems to have been deserted for a while. And again, the movie Se7en comes to your mind...'What happened? Where is everybody? Why are these insects all over the place? Who lives here?' Many questions are asked, and the riddle is yours to discover...

Gloomy, heavy, abrasive, generates anxiety with one thought in your head: 'I want to leave this place...but I won't.'

1 stars the principal defect of this group is the difficulty to recall the single tracks, so the entire listening of the album is fuse together and always a littele boring with rare peaks. The other negative thing is the gabriel-wannabe vocals, without the same extension and emotion. The third defect is ... (read more)

4 stars DYNAMIC DUO I think that nickname applies perfectly to these two guys and the kind of music they make. As with their other recordings, they like to use a variety of styles, without going directionless, always complex but cohesive. Their sound (and voice) has been all the time compared to Mari ...
