1 stars Normally I would start every one of my reviews by saying something positive about a group's album, but that was not possible for me in "Sing to God".

I don't understand how this stays at #21 on TOP PA albums of all time. Do I think it is better than Larks Tongue in Aspic? no. Do I think it's better than Pawn Hearts? no. I value this Top 100 list because if people are just getting into prog, they need to know what the essence of great prog music is. If they reach the next album on the list, and it's "Sing to God", they are going to distrust the list. At least, that's what I would do albeit I don't know what the listener's music taste is.

I would also like to say, that with all honesty, I am reviewing this album with utmost objectivity, though listening to music comes down to a very personal level, I have nothing against this band, and I respect that they are making this "RIO/Avant-Prog" music.

First of all, the vocals in "Fiery Gun Hand" sounds like it's Alvin and the Chipmunks.

Second, it is impossible for anyone to understand what they are singing about, which I take it as they have nothing to sing about if they mix the audio just well (or bad) enough so that it is incomprehensible.

It is just too noisy, there is no music to it whatsoever. I'm trying hard to understand what there is that people like about it. Every single song on the album has the same type of vocals. It's like they are almost not even taking it seriously.

Maybe just record some cars passing by on the street and then you can start talking about it. I personally would not be able to think, "What do I want to listen to right now?"

!!!"I know!" "Sing to God"!
