I downloaded this band's debut album from iTunes, Awakening, and am enjoying several of the tunes - most notably the title track. I also enjoy Within Cold Glass, Fallen Angels, Sacred Shape, Aching Hunger and Shadows of the Mind. I'm less impressed with Playing the Game and Chasing Rainbows. This band sounds to me like equal parts "Going for the One"-era Yes and Evanescence, with a touch of Asia and Floyd thrown in. I had never heard of them before stumbling across their CD on iTunes. I'm curious whether anyone else has heard this band and what you think of them.

I first heard a streaming track on this site and fell in love with them immediately.  Really cool web site, too.  You might also be interested in the limited edition autographed DVD they have for sale.  It's got one video and interviews with most of the band members.

I got the album a few weeks back and I'm still getting into it but they seem pretty good. I think there may be a new one soon if I'm not mistaken.

Hello all. this is my first post to this forum which I've just found. The Reasoning are indeed releasing a new album in October called Dark Angel, although a limited edition pre-order dvd and cd will be released in early/mid September. A trailer for it is here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vyKqNYmRaGY

It is heavier and darker than Awakening but retains the vocal harmonies. But it also allows Rachel Cohen (formerly Rachel Jones - ex Karnataka) a full part and she has just the most gorgeous voice. They also have a new guitarist, Owain Roberts, who is awesome.

Apologies for shameless plug (especially as this is my first post) but Rachel and her husband (and band founder and bass player) Matthew are two of my best friends

thanks for reading
Graeme

Welcome Graeme, looking forward to the album's release immensely - The Reasoning were the highlight of the Cambridge Rock (and Beer) Festival for me (did I see a glimpse of that performance in the YouTube vid?). Darker & heavier is good - I like dark & heavy.Approve

^^well, I'll be driving, so it'll be beer-lite sadly, but it'd be good to say 'hello'..
 
in the mean time, why don't you wander over to our 'Shed' some time (General Discussions Forum) and introduce yourself...we could do with one or two actual musicians in there...LOL

Hi Dean, thanks for your kind comment.Yes, that was from Cambridge. Sadly The Reasoning were let down badly by the sound crew, as I'm sure you know, but Mostly Autumn were treated even worse! However it was a fun day and I have to say Touchstone were great, as were Breathing Space. John Otway was amazing and Marillion, well, they're my favourite band, and for some reason, although she's seen them many times, my wife finally "got" them that night. Not sure why, as they had plenty of problems of their own on the night, but I'm not complaining!
Cheers
Graeme

The Reasoning are quite a good band, I found them on Amazon after searching for a CD by Knight Area.

O if only! Sadly my musical skills are not something you'd pay money for, it just so happens that Matt and Rach from The Reasoning are 2 of my very best friends  and I'll do anything I can to help them as they are quite honestly 2 of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet. I've been backstage with them at various places and seen other bands play the big "I AM" card but not these guys. I might end up being  a one trick pony here (and my apologies if that is the case) but if you get to see them play live and meet them afterwards you'll understand what I'm labouring the point about!

I'll head on over to the shed anyway!
