The Truth
5 stars Dredg really hit a high point with El Cielo, this album is just one of those that really strikes an emotional chord with me and I could never get bored of.

The theme of lucid dreaming and sleep paralysis really must have inspired the band because they really knew how to write about it and they thoughtfully express their emotions about the topic so excellently it should be criminal.

The album is extremely accessible even though it contains so many influences from symphonic prog to post rock to even jazz and this helps it stand out from the rest of the alt-prog releases. There is also a certain energy inherent in it that I don't believe any other band has achieved, it's almost supernatural.

Take a look a Dali's painting "Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bee Around a Pomegranate a Second Before Awakening" (whose acronym is found in the first track) and enjoy this spiritual ride Dredg has created.

A truly brilliant and original masterpiece of progressive music.

The Truth | 5/5 |
