3 stars "Tiles" is the self-titled debut full-length studio album by US, Detroit, Michigan, based progressive rock act Tiles. The album was released through Standing Pavement Recordings/Dream Circle in May 1994.

The music on the album is very influenced by mid nineties Rush. Itīs not only due to the way the instrumental part of the music sounds but also because lead vocalist Paul Rarick has a voice that is very similar in style to the voice of Geddy Lee (Rush). The music also features a lot of hard rock elements, which can be heard in a track like "Token Pledge". The musicianship on the album is generally on a very high level and that is one of the biggest assets of the album. The quality of the material is a bit up and down and thereīs little here that really makes my blood boil. Itīs still an enjoyable and consistent album though.

"Tiles" is a decent debut by the band, but itīs fairly standard when talking of the quality of the sound production and the material and Iīd say a 3 star (60%) rating isnīt all wrong.

UMUR | 3/5 |
