4 stars The brighter side of Tim Bowness

Tim Bowness', 2015, "Stupid Things That Mean The World", has been silently rated, quiet well by the way. It will be hard for such a low profile and sometimes way unprog, or eclectic if you wish, project to flip out most prog audiophiles' cravings for metal, speed or fireworks.

Quiet the opposite and very much in tune with Tim Bowness' creations, this release will be mostly appreciated by prog´s crossover aficionados and his close-followers and yet it could find its way into any prog's eclectic, folk and prog related enthusiasts.

A guest list of top-notch musicians (less Steven Wilson) playing around one of the most dynamic Tim Bowness' releases in years , maybe since No Man's first releases, with impeccable mesurity and exploding creativity, each song appears as bag of surprises and exciting highlights.

Now, do not get carried away with the dynamic mentioning, I mean, Iron Maiden he is not, but his usual slow paced mood is less visited as I mentioned before, than his previous works.

And to add icing on this cake, if you still crave for more, this release has its deluxe version bonus disc that will easily add points to this project.

4.5 PA stars.
