4 stars ANYONE is the brainchild of multi-talented US artist Riz Story basically. He already has formed this music project way back in the last century, while starting with a more heavy alternative, grunge and metal music mix. The previous 2020 album 'On The Ending Earth ...' though has been the initial point for a major shift towards progressive rock, including reminiscences of Rush, Tool, Led Zeppelin, to name a few. And now, concerning the overall flow, the compositional aspect, this album production comes matured again. Hence, for some reason, one can consider it his masterpiece. So far of course, only he himself bears the clues what will follow. I am definitely delighted with the revealed inspiration and especially the technical finesse. Yep, challenging arrangements and such a tricky execution during the course of round about 100 minutes, accompanied by a crystal clear sound.

This nearly has no equal currently. I only could name a very few artists respectively bands which are sounding somewhat similar, let's say Coevality or Ontologics. At first glance let's consider that there is a Sci-Fi concept behind this, dealing with the dystopian vision '... when mankind has made the earth uninhabitable and venture into the cosmos to find a planet that is even more beautiful than earth, which they immediately begin to destroy ...' Holy [&*!#]! But quite a possible view. Music-wise there's a strong powerful heavy rock expression to note. Where the guitars are dominant, both electric and acoustic, compared to piano, synths, and electronics. Concerning the sound mix the vocals are rather prominent. This applies to the drums in the same way. But as often nowadays it's nearly impossible to say if they were acoustically or electronically generated. I tend to the latter.

Man! Occasionally I had problems to cope this in its entirety, which is running over such a long course. Thus for a certain time I would not have complained if the album was presented in a bit more compressed format. You know, less is more in some cases. But this has vanished in the meanwhile, I learned to reserve enough space instead for this incredible production. Lively drums are opening The Disappearing Everything, some well-appointed piano keystrokes, psychedelic soarings as well as agressive metal affin guitar riffs, the complex flow, I really adore this. Don't Swallow Tomorrow bears a little Black Sabbath feel. Misanthropist is the sole track with external support, speaking of Jon Davison who contributes the vocals. I'm very impressed, it's an overwhelming experience, very ambitious. Happy listening. 4.5 stars on the PA scale.

4 stars For someone who has just learned the drums, the man behind the band Riz Story makes sure you can hear his drums in the mix. on this album. He uses all his toms with some complex patterns. The bass also is up in the mix with plenty of keys/piano throughout the album. The melody is brought on another level with some excellent singing including the voice of Jon Davison on one track. The music relies more on building an intense atmosphere with a slow tempo, some dreamy and spacey passages along with short heavier outbursts and some post-rock elements. The singing tone reminds me a lot of Bono from U2 which is not a bad thing. The guitars are low profile but still present and have impressed me in the first track "Elations' which has some groovy parts. In the shorter song "The Pale Blue Dot", you can hear a Crimsonesque style of guitar with that huge bass sound. "Don't Swallow Tomorrow" has some Black Sabbath influences for the most part, but in the end the music here is unique and I am glad to have discovered this band or this Riz Story who has made a lot of music and has filled many roles not only on the world of music but also in the movies and poetry department.

5 stars ANYONE is Rice's baby, here his 4th album, but what a double album in the process of giving birth for a good decade, "A Winter Rose" already alerted us in 2016 with an anachronistic film. Progressive rock after having flirted with rap metal or punk metal for a long time; here we are witnessing a ... (read more)
