4 stars The Tangent simply can not disappoint their fans. The newest album it is as good as you can expect, a step up over their 2020 " Auto Reconnaissance", in the line with their most recent albums like "The Slow Rust Of Forgotten Machinery" or "Proxy", but maybe a little weaker than "The Music That Died Alone" "A Place In The Queue" or "Le Sacre du Travail". First three tracks are nearly perfect: a mixture of modern prog with some jazzy parts, "The GPS Vultures" being one of the best instrumental tracks in years. Its a shame that the last two song lowers the bar a little. Highly recommended and a great contender for the prog album of the 2022. THE MUSIC WILL NEVER DIE ALONE!
