Review by Rivertree
4 stars ALDENFIELD was formed by Howard Helm (keyboards) and Jim Morris (guitars) several years ago. Both are prolific studio respectively touring musicians for diverse wellknown artists. The line-up also sees Ruben Drake on bass and Mark Prator behind the drum set. After many years in the making they now could fulfill their goal to release an album completely comprised of self-written compositions. The quartet have recorded a concept album 'which takes the listener on a journey through potential end times as seen and told by seven people in different parts of the world'. A rather opportune theme, in these globalized times in particular, isn't it?

The comic art on the front cover may not really tease you, the music though is well worth the check for sure. The eight given songs are dominated by heavy progressive elements, partially getting close to bands like Tiles, Orpheus Nine, Odd Logic. Helm and Morris are equipped with a proper singing voice too. A fruitful collaboration, especially guitars and keys are perfectly complementing. So this is really multi-varianted, entertaining, groovy and highly melodic rock stuff which impresses me the more I'm listening. Decorated with a jazzy interlude and further twists and turns Going Nowhere currently marks my album highlight. Very well done, folks!
