4 stars In part taking off of medieval songs and influences, "Sonic Travelogue" is somewhere between an epic, symphonic wonderment of a musical journey, and a simply good collection of eclectically influenced tracks. The reason for this disparity is that Progression By Failure's eclectic sensibilities take him away from his strong point, some truly beautiful and, yes, epic tracks rich in classical and medieval leanings, that as a whole album would be an instant masterpiece. Some wonderful work with strings, mellotron, and wailing guitar. But, alas, we leave for some lower points. The rating notes that he knows what he's doing and that as such this is all good music, but this does drag it down in the end - ever more because of the sheer disappointment of the loss. Enough weeping, though, as, again, this is still good material all around. This is never a dull or bad listen. I have warmed to his particular eclecticism. But I still miss what could have been... I will say a 4.5 that must be rounded down. Still recommended, and this probably will still be a masterpiece for some.
