Tale biography
TALE was originally a solo project lead by South-African musician Rob GRANVILLE; who's debut album "Riverman Volume 1" impressed many upon it's release in 1994.

Shortly after he started collaborating with keyboardist Michael STODART, resulting in the well-received 1998 release "Elysium Fields".

This second release was to be the last the world heard of Tale though. The duo struggled long with the production of a third album; and when it finally saw the light in 2004, it was issued under the moniker "Granville - Stodart".


WHY IS THIS BAND LISTED AT PROGARCHIVES:
Multi-national project TALE made two quality albums, of which the second was the most interesting from a progressive point of view. Containing classical elements, vocal harmonies, atmospheric instrumental passages and catchy melodies; in style somewhere in between PINK FLOYD and ALAN PARSONS; the band was approved by the Neo-Progressive team.

Review by apps79
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

2 stars Tale was a solo project of South-African multi-instrumentalist Rob Granville.He wrote and produced all the material for his first CD ''Riverman vol.1'', additionally Granville plays all instruments and handles the vocals, except some female choirs.The album was released in 1994 on Voyage Productions.

To describe the music as a complete PINK FLOYD rip-off would'nt be far from truth.Granville borrows major elements from the mid-70's period of his British masters and tries to create an album full of FLOYD-ian fundamentals.Unfortunately he falls short with this effort.The music is too mellow and rarely takes off, the arrangements are pretty secure and the whole material rather forgettable.Alternations between acoustic moments and calm electric passages with vocals surrounding constantly are pretty much what this album is all about.A few organ/piano parts, a couple of sax solos and just a dose of flutes will not save this work from being a mediocre one.A couple of tracks escape from the rules though, like ''Rapidly shaking'' or ''More'', where Granville puts eventually some energy and decent inspiration in his efforts with the soaring guitar work being dominant and quite nice.However the album still has this cheap ''PINK FLOYD wannabe'' somber mood from start to finish, not allowing the listener to appreciate the music.

Not all clones are equally good and moreover not all bands sound original with Tale belonging to the black list of the category.Recommended only for fans of smooth FLOYD-ian soundscapes.

4 stars Five stars here, there, nothing can happen if nobody knows, right ? Nope, that's false hope. I'm currently one of these minority reviewers, who has bigger amount of masterpiece / 4 stars rating, but recently (last 1-2 months), I've been editing and lowering them (mostly). So I'm in phase of decreasing ratings. However, this music is so appealing, that I can't resist temptation to give best rating. The more important it is because nobody seems to know this album (and even less with their debut one). And that makes me sad, because such a beautiful symphonic prog (forget neo guys) is hard to find. Every song here can be my favourite (even it's strange that there's not the best one, they're all very good, exceptional).

4(+), even it can lack on prog side, as melodic / harmonic element raises it high. It's like catchy pop, just except it's not pop, but prog. Maybe not the most experimental album under the sun, but as I said, beautiful, distiled piece that's worth of your attention. You'll not regret, if you like beautiful music.

Thanks to ProgLucky for the artist addition. and to Windhawk for the last updates
