3 stars TCP runs for Temporal Chaos Project, a New York-based studio project found in 2008 by three musicians: Henry Tarnecky (vocals/keyboards), Blake Tobias (keyboards/bass), and Jack Wright (guitars/drums).With a little help by several musicians the trio produced the debut ''The way'', whοse recordings took almost a year to be finished, eventually released in May 2009 on the emerging 10T Records.

The album is a good mix of contemporary and vintage prog with a perfect balance between instruments, atmospheres and tempos.The style comes as a cross between Symphonic Rock in a GENESIS vein and MACHIAVEL-esque artistic Prog with melodic guitars and modern synthesizers representing the new Progressive Rock era, while a strong amount of analog keys with the mellotron on the forefront along with organs and harsichords add the appropriate retro feeling.Just a few moments with some complex heavier guitar parts are close to KING CRIMSON.However all compositions breathe a fresh air of harmony with a very rich sound and intelligent songwriting, characterized by the delicate keyboard flashes, the accesible guitar chops and the symphonic mellotron.Add also a vocalist, who sounds a lot like PETER GABRIEL and delivers nice dramatic vocals, and the picture is completed.The musicianship is rather easy-listening despite the numerous shifting moods and the album can be heard also by an amateur of the prog style.

For fans of bands in the style of GENESIS, MACHIAVEL, KAYAK, SIRIUS or IRRWISCH ''The way'' is an absolutely great addition, artistic prog of high musical value.But even more demanding listeners will be propably surprised by the talent of these guys.Strongly recommended...3.5 stars.
