1 stars As I listened to this album and read the reviews of other people I couldn't help but feel misguided. On the first run though I found myself skipping many songs. The tone of this music is all wrong and when stressed the DNA of the sound folds back over and destroys itself. On second listen I discovered that it is not the musical ability of the guitarist and drummer but the lead singer that really didn't do it for me. Whether it be the lyrics, recording or just voice, I found the lyrical tracks sub-par at best. I do not understand the parallel "comparisons" between Pink Floyd, the Beatles, King Crimson or Rush that I have read here. They all have one thing in common that Perfect Being's album does not. There is not a single good catchy song on this album. No amazing solos like David Gilmour pulls out of the depths, no driving sound that is Rush or lyrical bliss that is the Beatles. I don't find this band very progressive at all, as it doesn't push the limits. Instead, it is ideas from other earlier bands regurgitated into what I think is very bland music. I think that the keyboard playing was whimsical at best and did not add much to the music. I would not personally recommend this album to anyone. I can't in good conscience subject the ears of others to listening to poor quality prog rock. Go out on this site and find much more deserving albums.
