Review by Windhawk
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars US project THE NERVE INSTITUTE is the creative vehicle of composer and musician Michael S. Judge, formed in 2011 as the moniker for his musical endeavors, and he released his debut album "Architects of Flesh-Density" the same year. "Fictions" is the second album to be issued under this band name, and was released by the Italian label Altrock Records in 2015.

The Nerve Institute's second official album, that, in truth, is a reissued and remastered version of the first album by the project that later would be renamed The Nerve Institute, comes across as a warm, smooth, but also elegant and sophisticated take on vintage progressive rock of the accessible kind, with nods to symphonic, psychedelic, Canterbury and jazz rock, incorporated into an appealing sonic blend. Those with a general taste for vintage sounding progressive rock might want to inspect this album, and in particular those who enjoy music of that kind that doesn't stay put within a specified subset of progressive rock.
