4 stars Thought Machine make an excellent debut for a (hopefully) long music career!

I applaud the group for actually making a modern progressive ROCK album. So many modern groups have been making purely Prog music, or Progressive Metal, that the Rock side has kind of faded away! Not to say those bands or their music are bad, it's just nice to see a real prog rock album surface in the modern age!

The group bring the whole expected package, and deliver it well. Multi-layered guitars, intricate bass playing (including a great deal of bass chords!) fun drumming matching the odd time, a full swath of keyboards and sound effects all topped by higher range vocals with fantasy lyrics.

It sounds so vanilla typing it out, but the thing that sells it is they have all the typical parts done really, really, well. They're just a damn good prog rock band! The comparison that comes to mind is the Foo Fighters. What do they do that's "special"? Nothing in particular, they just deliver high quality, good music.

Very impressed with these young Canadians, I eagerly await their next release.
