Review by TheGazzardian
4 stars Prog from the opposite direction. Scott Johnson is a Classical Composer who believes integration of contemporary music is a vital part of classical music. Hence the inclusion of guitars and rock music elements, as well as studio manipulation. So like prog, this is a blend of rock and other genres, but instead if blending classical into rock, it's the opposite.

The other element if Scott's composition that is notable is the use of human dialogue to shape the music. Basing the music on pre- recorded speech gives it unique turns and twists.

On that note, the first composition, Americans, is the most notable and interesting here, featuring intense rhythms and heavy use of dissonant and abrupt instrumentation. Reminds somewhat of chamber rock acts like Rational Diet. The first ten seconds will hook you.

The three instrumental tracks are good but not as good as the vocal based tracks.
