4 stars Remarkeably solid music throughout makes Desensitized to Insanity one of the finds of 2008. This Canadian outfit make very tight progressive rock/fusion instrumental music. There are undeniable King Crimson/Rush influences yet a solid unique tightly arranged setlist which are consistently good songs. Personal highlights would have to be Mood Swings and Half of Eighteen. The drum work can give the ears a serious hammering so add some hefty bass to smoothe out the sounds. Barry Connors ( percussion) and Dean Watson (Keys and guitars) compliment each other exceptionally well, check out the last song The Camera Ear' for good synchronisity between the two. Again a great discovery/introduction. One lowish point is the cover, not very entertaining but that is irrelevant in the big scheme of things. Don't miss out on listening to this great album. Four healthy stars.
