Prog Reviewer
3 stars Loud, choppy, punchy and very tasty all the way 'round. For those who love The LIQUID TENSION EXPERIMENT and SPOCK'S BEARD will drool over PLATYPUS. PLATYPUS is Rod Morgenstein on Drums (DIXIE DREGS), Ty Tabor on Guitars & Vocals (KING X), Derek SHERINIAN on Keyboards (DREAM THEATER) and John Myung on Bass (DREAM THEATER). PLATYPUS is driving somewhere between the Progressive and Classic Rock genre without ever sounding "Prog-metallish" or overcooked. The Music is very well composed and offers both soft and loud moments with many wild, wicked and complex guitar breakouts, drumming frenzies and keyboard runs. In many ways this has a strong affinity to the music of the DIXIE DREGS with perhaps a harder edge. PLATYPUS is enormous, bold and true sounding offering some incredible and tenacious musical interludes.
