Review by Evolver
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Crossover & JR/F/Canterbury Teams
3 stars Crack The Sky has posted this album at as a free download. I thank them for that.

This is a collection of the original demo recordings that John palumbo recorded, and submitted to the rest of the band to use for their 2010 album, "Machine". Some of these tracks were used as the foundation tracks for the songs used on that album. All of them sound pretty much complete.

The thing that stands out to me the most about these demos is the Pink Floyd influence (much like what was heard on the "From The Greenhouse" album, that does not come through on the final album versions. The laid back sound, and particularly Palumbo's guitar style, both on rhythm and solos, makes me think of various phases of Floyd's career.

The lyrics, the same as those on the album, are good. Palumbo has always had a nice way of turning a phrase. and all are tied together into a "machine" theme (again, a Pink Floyd reference).

There is very little prog, but this album is a nice listen. I would recommend the full band version over this.
