3 stars Island of the Misfit Toys is the third album from american rock/ prog rock band Timothy Pure. I found their previous album Blood of the Berry to be a pleasant listen and this album continues in a similar style.

The music is pretty normally structured rock but there are progressive tendencies. Some great melodic soloing and keyboard backing which reminds me a bit about newer Pink Floyd and Marillion. The mood is pretty sombre which is emphasised by the dark and emotional lyrics about innocense and childhood challenges.

The musicianship is is very good and the vocals from Matthew Still are emotional and pleasant.

The production is warm and well done.

The cover is eerie and strangely melancholic at the same time and suits the lyrics well IMO. Very well done.

If you liked the previous album from Timothy Pure called Blood of the Berry youŽll surely like this one too as it is in a similar style and quality. This is not music that suits my taste much but there is nothing wrong with the quality and the album deserves a 3 star rating.

UMUR | 3/5 |
