3 stars This CD is a great starting point to explore this exciting new band. The music here is cross blend of many different influences. On the Spiraling Myspace page they list over 50 bands as influence as varied from Yes, Gentle Giant to the Foo Fighters, Radiohead and the Cars. Very interesting uses of new music with prog keyboards and drums. A Face for Radio is good straight ahead rocker to open this CD. Good use of breaks and time changes. Tom Brislin has a good sense of humor and comes across in the lyrics of this song. My three favorites are the last three songs. Are You Here Parts 1-2 is a New Song that they added to this CD. A very nice melody and keyboard arrangement in the first part ending with a bolero type ending in part 2 that builds to a great climax. I have seen them perform this song and it is stunning. The last two songs Texas is the Reason and You Can't Get There show off the band at its best blending a sound or atmosphere rather than individual virtuosic performance (although they are quite capable of that).

I find this CD refreshing in a sea of medicore pop/rock music.
