CBP is quickly turning into one of my favourite bands. A great mixture between doom and psych influences.

By the way, they're on tour in Europe right now!

In 2013, I discovered CBP with the fantastic double CD (Mankind) The Crafty Ape (2012).  (18/20)

Heard an album of theirs and found it okay, though nowhere as heavy as their name and several members' past careers had led me to expect.

(Mankind) The Crafty Ape is their best album IMO. It has a floydian atmosphere and heavy sound - it's a nice combination.

^Just lately aware of this band's work but beneath the Steve Wilson sense of gloom I feel a heavy Floyd undertone. Am I even close?

I love the CBP sound; thick, heavy and emotive. (Mankind) The Crafty Ape is pretty floydian, it's CBP most 'classic prog' album, but it's not derivative. Its a good album, though I have not idea why I, Vigilante is the lowest rated on PA except the debut!

I heard 'Human Nature Dictates the Downfall of Humans' a few months back and needed to explore the albums!
