Review by b_olariu
4 stars Pinnacle is a heavy prog band from USA with three albums released so far. This band manage to capture my attention with their second album from 2006 named Meld. Energic and noodly heavy prog album with some great instrumental sections, and aswell the voice is pretty ok. Pinnacle have their own sound I think even they are in same category with Tiles, Rush or Variant, almost same aproach in music with twisted tempo changes, some fine guitar works and quite intresting bass lines, very busy instrument . I also like a lot the drums, Greg Jones is very sure of his instrument creating some great chops. They add a new musician in the line up - Matt Francisco who is responsable for vocal lines and aswell keybords. Well, to tell the truth this is a very worthy aqusition by the band with this new member , he add a new dimension the Pinnacle music creating a very solid heavy prog album.. The music is engaging, full of intresting arrangements, powerful musicianship, colorful music for sure. What I like on this third album released in 2012 named A blueprint for chaos is that with the addition of Matt Francisco the keyboards are more proeminent then ever befor in their music. The music is something between Kansas with heavy prog elements a la Rush, Tiles, very strong combination I might say. The voice of Francisco is very good being very similar with Steve Walsh tone, sometimes I have the impression I'm listning to Kansas. Even the album is long over an hour it doesn't contain any mediocre or boring moments, contrary has plenty of intresting arrangements well performed. Pieces like opening track - Some Just Sleep, Conductor, Long Black Car or .Somewhere Between show a great potential this band has in today scene, they are active for more then 10 years now and every album is a winner in my book. To me, this is better then predecesor Meld who was already a strong album in this scene but A blueprint for chaos definetly tops it on every aspect. Nice complicated instrumental passages, where the guitars and keyboards have an important role. A recommended album , this is definetly one of the better examples how must sound a heavy prog album these days. Easy 4 stars from me, nice art work aswell, the album comes in digipak format and is a nice package. A strong band,
