Review by Mellotron Storm
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars This is such a good record, and it was mixed by Terry Brown.The vocals are really unique, i've heard them described as sounding like Ozzy, but in a lower tone.They sound strained but in a good way.

These great vocals and harmonies are the focus of the first song "This Golden Voyage". I really like the vocal melody (instead of words) that are used on the chorus of "Tracer", and the guitar solo rocks and the piano melody is nice. "Seeing Eye God" is an ok, uptempo tune. I feel the same way about "Gardens Of Autumn" although the intro is good with heavy guitars, synths and drums. "Perfect World" is one of the highlights for me, it's different sounding, and the instrumental sections are fast paced at times. The vocals sound almost like they are yelled, and there are some really good guitar solos. "Reflections" is another really good song that is a slower paced, powerful tune. "Breakwater" is amazing, opening with bagpipes and the sound of seagulls.There are some good drums, organ and some crazy guitar melodies.The vocals are incredible ! The melody at five minutes is awesome !

"The Time Being" has some tempo changes, sampling, crisp drumming and best of all, lots of great guitar solos ! "Dream Catcher" has some narration from Chief Running Bear, a Cheroke Native American. Lots of organ in this one, as well as a scorching guitar solo 61/2 minutes in. "From Henceforth Now And Forever (PS 124)" is the best song in my opinion, opening with synths and drums and a vocal line ( that is the title of this song) that are the only words sung, on and off throughout the song. Lots of guitar, drums, synths and even a bass solo. The song ends with thunder and rain. Psalm 124 is about Isreal stating that if God had not been on their side their enemies would have destroyed them. So I think the band is saying that God is on our side now and forever.

I highly recommend this record, it's well worth checking out.

3 stars Under the Sun self titled album from 2000 is the only release of this american band. Issued by Magna Carta same year. Well, what we have here is a good pleasent type of prog rock with sporadicaly some prog metal elements thrown in but Under the Sun never being a prog metal band in overall sound. They remind me of bands like Rush with an americanized sound quite similar with Tiles or Enchant in manner of composing. Overall is a good album, even great in places, but I can't see this album as a masterpieces or close, is fairly decent with strong musicianship and some great ideas on some pieces like Breakwater for instance being I guess the best tune of the album together with The time being. Very nice solid guitar parts and keyboards. I think this album were little higher for me in rating if wasn't the crisp vocal parts of Chris Shryack, while is far from bad is the lowest point of the album, the instrumental sections are really tight. Overall 3.5 stars, worth to be discovered.

4 stars I can easily see why this album would appeal to Kansas fans as Under the Sun really do sound like vintage Kansas. That's not to say that they are a pure clone, far from it. I wouldn't call these guys prog-metal, they are actually more art rock and at times even a little symphonic prog. You ... (read more)

5 stars Interesting, Seeing Eye God and Dream Catcher are my favorite tracks on this CD, although Seeing Eye God is too fun and bouncy for pure prog. Very appealing though, I love the funky sound of it. The bassist & drummer are a perfect solid backdrop. This CD is on my all-time top ten favorite list. ... (read more)

4 stars I almost gave this CD a 5 star rating but could not quite due to the fact that in my opinion there are 2 songs not deserving that status (Seeing Eye God and Dream Catcher) But those 2 songs only make up 10 min. of a 67 min.
