5 stars This is an amazing record, the first recording with the very talented Ben Mink on electric violin and mandolin. Two long jams where the trio showcases lots of interesting ideas full of melody and complexity. What I particularly appreciate on this album is that the band is absolutely focused throughout the jams, there's little self-indulgency (safe for the drum solo), far from it, the trio features such levels of creativity that easily top fellow Canadian bands such as Rush and Saga at their very best.

Headroom is very different from Black Noise but IMHO every bit as good if not better than that record. Ben Mink is a welcome addition to the band, Nash the Slash is supposed to have an impressive stage presence but in music what really matters is the playing and in this record he is not missed at all!

This is a very hard-to-find album, it seems that hasn't been released on CD, that makes this album a true rare gem of Canada's progressive music.

Prosciutto | 5/5 |
