Review by Mellotron Storm
3 stars This is the only Jack Foster album I own and to my ears this is more of a Prog-Related affair. As a solo artist the focus here is on Jack's vocals and lyrics and both are outstanding. It's funny because after I listened to this the first time I felt that this just wasn't my kind of music. Well this album has really grown on me. This guy is very talented and he gets some help from MAGELLAN's Trent Gardiner as well as Robert Berry.

"No Tears Left For Cryin'" is a song that could have some success if it was played on FM radio. Strummed guitar and those soulful vocals combine with touching lyrics to create what i think is the best song on the album. I like how he adds Steve Miller's "Fly Like An Eagle" lyrics after 4 1/2 minutes, an album I owned on vinyl as a 16 year old. The song ends with Miller's words "...there's a solution". Which happens to be the title of the next track. "The Solution" opens with drums and bass. This gets fairly heavy actually as vocals join in. Guitar solo before 3 minutes. A "gospel vocal section" comes in around 6 minutes to end it. "Civilized Dog" is about Jack's dog. A cute song with some harmonica. "One Dark Angel" opens with strummed guitar and vocals. It gets fuller and we get some atmosphere too. Sax after 3 minutes to end it.

"Mourning Glory" is heavy at times and also made me think of RUSH for some reason. "Bloodstone" is my second least favourite after the final track. It does get better as it plays out though. "Broken Hallelujah" is a top three. Anytime I hear that "hallalujah" sung it usually moves me. It's powerful.The guitar after 4 1/2 minutes is emotional like the lyrics. "Heart And Mind" has some great lyrics and a powerful sound at times. Ripping guitar after 4 1/2 minutes. "Inside My Mind" is the other top three tune for me. It sounds really good after 1 1/2 minutes and again the lyrics are so meaningful. Great chorus as well. "Limbo And Flux" and "Rainbow Asylum" are good but nothing more. "Every Time We Say Goodbye" is by far my least favourite. Not a fan of this style, expecially the vocal style.

Overall this is a pretty good album.

4 stars If a thousand monkeys pounding at a thousands keyboards will eventually produce the works of Shakespeare then can it be assumed that five hundred monkeys pounding on five hundred instruments will produce a half-way decent progressive rock album? Many progressive bands seem to subscribe to this ... (read more)
