"RELIC OF THE MODERN WORLD"
Kurdt Vanderhoof of Metal Church indulges his progressive leanings with Presto Ballet, and on this, their fifth album, his vision and creativity are still clear, touches of seventies prog mixed with neoprog elements, all mixed into some great ear candy.
From the introduction to the final fade we are treated to a band that is part Dream Theater, part Porcupine Tree with that special ingredient that makes them unique.
Musically, this could be their best work to date, a musical canvas that reveals its secrets to you with repeated listening.
The songs are tight and interesting, and the sound is just about perfect. Every instrument is at the right level in the mix and the songs hold your attention.The closing title track is a twenty minute showcase piece-this one takes a few listense to sink in but is worth the investment.
