Review by Grumpyprogfan

4 stars Covet are a trio that play a smooth style of mostly instrumental music. There are elements of jazz, djent, and rock splattered throughout this album, but to me Covet has a sound all its own. Like watching ripples in water, this album has a calming effect on me, but if I focus, and listen to the compositions and musicianship, there is a lot going on. This is a busy record, but even with heavy and tricky parts weaving in and out of the songs it doesn't feel like it. It's not forced and sounds natural. Syncopated riffs abound, anchored with precision by the fiery rhythm section of David Adamiak (bass), and Forrest Rice (drums), while Yvette Young (guitar) explores the cosmos. Her expert tapping technique, and use of guitar effects brings something refreshing, something not heard often.

Parachute is one of my faves and one Yvette sings (nice voice), love how this song keeps evolving, changing, going to different places. Nero, one of the heavier songs, starts with a distorted guitar but the bubbly break 2'41" into the song changes the tone of the song, from crunchy to not crunchy. Very cool changes. Pirouette, the shortest tune, is another highlight, that has chord-age that reminds me of Allan Holdsworth. Some fierce drumming towards the end of that song.

Overall, this is a must listen for those who enjoy instrumental music on the djenty/jazzy side. Unfortunate that Covet seems to get overlooked here on PA. Let's change that.

Review by Cylli Kat (0fficial)

4 stars Fun and Serious Chops!

Yvette Young and co. have assembled a collection of songs here that I think would appeal to fans of Stanley Jordan, Exvious, & Genetics (formerly Dianetics) and maybe to some degree Michael Hedges.

She has fabulous technique which never makes any of the songs seem designed to wow with virtuosity, yet never fail to impress nonetheless!

Here we find really strong compositions that are allowed to grow and breathe and wander.

Yvette uses mainly clean tones to incorporate virtuosity into the structures of the songs rather than to noodle about over the top as many guitar oriented albums oft do. The rhythm section of David Adamiak and Keith Grimshaw help to move the music effectively and efficiently. And the voices on the closer Sea Dragon shows Yvette to have a very pleasant voice too! This is engaging and refreshing, recommended indeed for fans of technical, guitar oriented but not Metal instrumental music!

As always, your mileage may vary,

Grace and peace, Cylli (Jim)

Review by cirrusbay

4 stars Covet is a very talented trio, led by guitarist Yvette Young, who has mastered a tapping style of playing, similar to excellent technical artists such as Sloth & Turtle, and Floral, the latter whose guitarist is one of the best I've ever heard. Almost as good as the earlier EP, 'Efflorence', 'Technicolor' is the bands first full-length LP, and the first release to feature vocals, albeit briefly in 2 songs. The music, often intense, alternates between technical and beautiful, and Yvette plays with passion and joy-watching her play is a pleasure as she has an obvious deep love for music and playing, and does so with remarkable precision while making it flow, seemingly effortlessly. Her voice is pleasant too, but the real focus is instrumental music. Comparisons are difficult-Floral certainly, but not as technical and tight as Floral (but then no one is), and a more known comparison, King Crimson at their most technical. Again, there is much beauty here too, so don't let the 'Math Rock' label fool you. This is pretty much pure prog, original and innovative. My favorite track (today) is also the shortest track, 'Pirouette', but there is not a track I don't enjoy. I do recommend going to YouTube and watching them play, and if you like what you see, give 'Sloth & Turtle' and 'Floral' a view as well. Highly recommended!
Thanks to dAmOxT7942 for the artist addition.
