The Far Side Heavy Prog

Review by maryes

3 stars 3,5 really !!!The Far Side "Parallelebiped" make a style of sound certainly influenced by bands like Enchant, Tiles ( which are influenced by Rush specially in their third phase "Grace Under Pressure" and "Power Windows"). Although this isn't a masterpiece as for instance "Time Lost" from Enchant (review (#302991) | Posted by maryes | Saturday, October 9, 2010 with 5 Stars rate and "Presents of Mind" from Tiles ((#450636) | Posted by maryes | Saturday, May 21, 2011 with "4,5" stars. The album is very pleasant, the arrangements are very worked and his sound don't seems a cheap copy. The best moments in the album be in track 2 "Underworlds" and their strong rhythm and main melody, track 4 "Cruise Speed" and the overture with distorted bass guitar and "gently" broken beats, the middle ballad and their final "jazzy" passage (starting 6min 26 sec) and track 8 "Strange Atractors" and the delayed and repetitive electric guitar melody which for a breath moment reminds some passages from Rush's in "Distant Early Warning" and "Afterimage" from Grace Under Pressure ! In a short I've said above isn't not a masterpiece but... a very good disc in the style . My rate is 3 stars!!!
Thanks to andy webb for the artist addition.
