From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars I spent my whole adult life listening to music of Genesis,Pink Floyd,Moody Blues,Anthony Philips,and alike.I am aged 49 years by now,and never thought that I would ever come across any new music that can break my addiction to those music makers,but that was only before i happened to give "Offramp" a chance.I had a grieving and tragic loss of my little nephew,and after his burial,I had a very hard time coping with life,but "The Bat" of that album got me soaring into what I felt like the (tranquile life after death),I had visions of long lost heartmates thru listening to that great one.This got me indulged into PMG's works.Right now I am haunted by "Secret Story",a few days before I had been listening for a whole year to only one album;" letter from Home".What does Pat and his great musicians want to say?Their music needs no lyrics,it talks,it takes me to worlds that I never thought are available in our lifetime period.I believe that classical music have been said and done,no way that we can add to it,but Pat Metheny Group is there for it,he can impact us with a greater effect.I also am very glad to share this vast and increasing community,of people who,like my case,are very grateful to PMG for the great times that they afford to us,times of joy,mystique,sufism,deep insights into matters like death and the ultimate truth of why we live and why are we destined to die eventually,and finally,times to escape the rough trails of everyday's life like depression and necessities of life that are most of the times very hard to get.Remember that Pat has got an elder brother,Mike,a great Flugelhorn player,check his works too,I admired him at first time.One final note; listen to any of these album while you are cruising along a highway,and feel your insides flow out at the highest pitch,rejoicing,flying,shedding real teardrops for whatever is agitating your soul,and live your life to the hilt before death grasps you away.
