5 stars Dwellers of the Deep finds Wobbler continuing to mine the vein of retro inspiration and modern execution which yielded such good results on From Silence To Somewhere. As on that album, the overall sound is reminiscent of Yes jamming with Gentle Giant (think Yes textures laid over Gentle Giant rhythms), and if you're much of a proghead I probably already persuaded you to give it a shot just on the basis of that comparison.

If you need more insights, though, perhaps I'll note that this seems to go into slightly spooker or more anxious territory than its predecessor; some of the quieter and more pensive moments on here remind me of the similarly quiet and foreboding moments that Discipline often work into their compositions. There's also a good dose of modern sounds, with pulsating electronic terrors unleashed towards the end of closing epic Merry Macabre. As far as I am concerned, Wobbler are right at the top table of present-day prog, and Dwellers is a capable defence of that position.
