The Dreaming Tree biography
UK act THE DREAMING TREE was formed sometime after the millenium, but didn't evolve towards a real band project until 2004, when forming duo Chris Buckler and Neil Ablard met Dan Jones on an engineering course. Dan was invited to join the duo's musical escapades, and soon after Jim Peterson and Steve Barratt agreed to take part in this endeavour as well.

With a complete line-up in place a self-titled EP was recorded and released in 2004. Following this the band concentrated on live performances, taking on as many live possibilities as possible. Be it as a whole band, parts of the band performing acoustic sets or whatever was needed for the occasion. This has had a lasting impact on the stylistic expression of this outfit, giving their compositions a fluent, improvisational edge.

In 2007 their debut effort Grafting Lines and Spreading Rumours saw the light of day, and in the spring of 2010 their sophomore effort Progress Has No Patience followed. Shortly after the album release The Dreaming Tree suffered their first line-up alteration. Jim Peterson decided to leave the band for personal reasons, and was replaced by Neil Simpson.

At the time of writing The Dreaming Tree appear to continue what they have doing for a number of years now: Playing live as often as possible in a wide variety of different settings. These days with two full albums to sell to what hopefully is a steadily growing fanbase.

2 stars When Peter Frampton met Spandau Ballet...

The Good: Moult has some pretty awesome guitar work.

The Bad: Don't get me wrong, this is a solid album and I enjoy listening to it from time to time. The problem is that Progress Has No Patience is about as progressive as Slippery When Wet is metal. It seems that The Dreaming Tree must have borrowed older brother Genesis' ID and snuck into Prog Archives whilst the bouncers were distracted with a fight between Rick Laird and Jerry Goodman. I'm no music elitist and enjoy a multitude of styles and genres, but when an album is featured on this website I expect a certain level of innovation. Just because something is a little bit different doesn't necessarily mean it's prog.

The Verdict: All prejudice aside this is still a good album and would have hit at least three stars on PopRockArchives.com.

Special Collaborator Psych/Space Team & Band Submissions

4 stars The band name somehow reminds me of another outfit. Probably not a coincidence. Well, Dave Matthews produced an eponymous title for the album 'Before These Crowded Streets' in 1998, which is one of my favourite band songs. And in fact, at least concerning the qualitative approach, this stuff here is not so far away in my opinion - to offer a forecast in some way. In other words, 'Progress Has No Patience' consists of sophisticated rock songs which can be listed under the progressive rock label ... you only have to widen the scope a bit.

The album title is striking, oh yeah, we have to take this literally most likely ... why not? It's not the band's debut, however I don't know the predecessor albums for a comparison. In any case here we have a quintet showing a standard instrumentation where the singer can concentrate on his job exclusively. Chris Buckler's voice surely is an attraction. Charming, multi-variant, as far as this is necessary also very expressive, always present but never too dominant, excellently embedded. This points to the fact that the album is really worked out with care, feeling, atmosphere in its entirety ... and this credit may also belong to producer Karl Groom (Threshold).

As for the track list it all begins with a little gimmick, the opener simply appears four seconds long, consisting of ... nothing! Not a mistake I assume according to the sleeve printing. And then the band provides the first two tunes Silence Won't Steal and Arcadia with a strong AOR and neo prog appeal. I particularly want to point out Neil Ablard's excellent drum work which occurs to me above all. Furthermore you will get some jazz pop flavoured appeal with Grown Too Small where the two longest offerings Moult and Ophidia are more tricky - close to Big Big Train, Genesis, Spock's Beard inbetween, provided with Gilmour reminiscent soloing guitars, shifting time signatures and longer instrumental passages.

The more I listen the more I'm sure this an album which I will come back to here and there .. and if it is for the next party when there is a need for some danceable songs in order to fill the dance floor. Just take Love And The Heart for example which evolves to an earworm after some rounds due to a stunning remarkable chorus. Slender Versions Of The Truth appears as the most varied track put here - you can say that the album's two faces are mixed up to something eclectic in the end. The last two songs are atmospheric ballads which relax the mind, some may say now 'Progress Has No Patience' loses potential a bit. I don't agree.

All in all this songs are capable to reach a wider range of rock music fans than those coming from the prog rock niche alone. With other words, the material is partially mainstream bordering and certainly has the makings of a commercial success. I find it a prolific production with skillful instruments all over. You really have to search for something comparable which bears such a bunch of nice rock music arrangements and catchy melodies. Highly recommended to all fans which like to listen to elaborated melodic rock songs.
