Product biography
US band PRODUCT is a collaboration between Arman Christoff Boyles (vocals, guitar, keyboards) and Scott Rader (drums, Bass).

They hooked up in Los Angeles in 1990, but it wasn't until 1999 that they had finalized plans for the creation of a series of concept albums; utilizing the elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water as inspirations as well as historical figures.

The debut album "On Water" was issued in 2000, and the series continued with "Aire" in 2003, "The Fire" in 2005 and finally "Earth" in 2008.

4 stars One thing about listening to so much new music is that even as the album starts I find myself starting to work out what I am going to say. Normally within the first few minutes of an album I can gauge whether or not I am going to like it. By now, you would have thought that I would know better. I first played this album while I was decorating which gave me the opportunity to play a lot of albums back to back very loudly to see what I felt about them. If I hadn't had a paint brush in my hand there is a good chance that I would have turned this off after the first few minutes as it sounded as if here was another laid back almost New Age album. But the gentle beginning gives no impression of the guitars that are going to break through, then gently drift out again.

I soon found that I was spending more time concentrating on the music than I was on the walls. Product are a new band to me, and are a duo of Arman Christoff Boyles (songs, vocals, guitars, keys) and Scott Rader (drums, bass) with some guest musicians. The comparison that one soon starts to make is with Pink Floyd, although there is much more going on in the way of guitars. It is fairly bleak and dark, but also intriguing and compelling. The vocals are there but are mixed so that they often take a back seat to what is going on, which in itself gives the band a sound that is quite different to many.

This is music that is restrained, even when the band are crunching as they do on "Age Of Reason", and is an album that works well on all levels. It certainly made my decorating go a lot better but it is also an album to be enjoyed in a darkened room, listening intently and drifting into their world. It was only on visiting their web site at www.flickertista.com that I discovered that this is a concept album based on the life of Galileo, and although this is only their second album they have been working together since 1990. Well worth investigation by progheads.

2 stars The "Element" concept continues this time with "Fire" and Nero is the subject matter.This is their third album with "Water" and "Aire" proceeding it. Much like the last album i'm having a real difficult time getting into this one. Maybe it's because it's a concept album and the focus is on the story, I don't know, but the music just does little for me.

"From This Tall Tower I" is almost silent until we get some life after 1 1/2 minutes, this is all about atmosphere and calm though. "It Begins" features acoustic guitar as reserved vocals join in. It does pick up after 1 1/2 minutes. Atmosphere late as the vocals stop. "World Of Nero" is a more passionate track including some organ. "Netting" opens with strummed guitar as laid back vocals join in. A beat follows. It does settle with atmosphere. "Don't Talk" has a beat as these mechanical-like vocals join in. A cool sounding tune. "All Is All" is a more traditional sounding song with vocals. "Where Or Why" is a good vocal led track. "From This Tall Tower II" has these faint sounds early on then spoken words take over with a beat.

"Jaded Love" has this beat that builds a minute in as reserved vocals join in. "Age" is a short atmospheric piece. "Jaded Love II" is catchy with piano and synths helping out. "Isis" has these melancholic vocals that are slow paced. A heavy sound takes over late. "Haze" has strummed guitar and vocals. Atmosphere before 3 minutes. "It Ends" has a heavy beat with guitar as reserved vocals join in. It does get fuller. "The Fire" is the closing number and easily the longest and best. We get a good mid paced rhythm with atmosphere and vocals.

Fans only is my rating. Maybe if your into concept albums this will appeal to you.

2 stars The band PRODUCT consists of two multi-instrumentalists from the U.S.A. who have put out several concept albums over the years. This is their second record based on the life of Galileo. The album itself is 73 1/2 minutes long with a lot of melancholic, laid back passages that make this a very long listen.

"City Of Gold" opens with birds chirping as acoustic guitar and synths come in. Reserved vocals before 2 minutes. I like when the full sound arrives 3 1/2 minutes in. Some guest strings in this one too. "Age Of Reason" opens with a beat as vocals join in and the sound becomes fuller. Guitar solo after 3 minutes. Some other highlights are "Value Of Gold" which has some energy and life to it. Some good contrasts as well.

"Wonderful Dreams" is atmospheric with vocals. Not a fan of "Other Worlds" but the vocals are very Bowie-like here. "Autumn" is really the only song that has a somewhat uplifting section in it. "Fall" is cool with the samples and atmosphere, some violin too. "Last Word" has some harmonica early before it settles with reserved vocals. "Breathing" ends it with atmosphere and violin to open. It does get fuller as it stays atmospheric.

I do prefer their debut which I gave 3.5 stars. This one is 2.5 stars in my opinion.

3 stars 3.5 stars. This is a concept album as told by a young sailor named Jacob, as he reflects on his life as a sailor on the ship with his fellow crew mates during the American Revolution. The kicker is that he's telling it as he's drowning !

As you might expect, the music is melancholic, dark and moody overall, although there is light and beauty that gets through the clouds from time to time. The first song has a spacey intro that turns dramatic, it's about the ship leaving the port. "Eye For Eye" begins with reserved vocals and an atmospheric background that quickly changes to heavy drums and distorted guitars.

"When The Smoke Fades Away" has fragile vocals, piano and FLOYD-like guitars. "London Towne" is an upbeat song with good drums and vocals. The next three songs are my favourites. "You" is a slow tune with female background vocals. "Islands" is a dreamy song. And "Lemmings" features the singer sounding quite theatrical like Roger Waters. "On Water" actually has an uplifting ending as he says "There is a home for me on water". It closes with "If we are an ocean, i'd be this island".

I look forward to listening to PRODUCT's next 2 records. This is a great start.

4 stars Product's second album is Aire, a concept album based on the life of Galileo and about a personal struggle between church and science. The album contains seventeen songs divided into two acts. The first act is about the frustrations of trying to be somebody in a material world void of answers. The second act is about the conflict between church, science, and politics. Like Product's debut On Water (released in 2000), all of the music was written and performed by Arman Christoff Boyles (vocals, guitars, keyboards) and Scott Rader (drums and bass), with a few guest vocalists and musicians.

Again, like On Water, Aire is constructed in a very Floydian-like fashion, consisting of many mellow, spacey pieces with louder sections interspersed throughout and the occasional use of sound effects. The strongest comparison of the music to other bands are definitely Porcupine Tree and, as noted before, Pink Floyd. On occasion it sort of resembles Marillion's Brave in places. However, even with these influences, Product stills sounds like its own thing and a number of the songs are quite original.

Of the seventeen songs, highlights include the radio-friendly (in a Porcupine Tree kind of way) Age of Reason, the complex percussion-oriented Here Comes Tomorrow, the ballad-like Still Here with its haunting piano, the Porcupine Tree-influenced Other Worlds, Fall with its haunting and Floydian feel, and The Calling which resembles a Floydian acoustic piece ending with wonderful guitar solo.

I really enjoyed Aire a great deal and find it to be a great sophomore release. Is it as good or better than their masterpiece debut On Water? Not quite. There are a few songs where Boyles' vocals are difficult and drowned out by the music. But the main reason I can't consider Aire to be a masterpiece is that it lacks the energy of their debut. It just doesn't have the punch that would take it over the edge. It's much more mellower and spacier. Even so, it earns a well deserved four stars and would make an excellent addition to any prog rock collection. Highly recommended to fans of Pink Floyd and Porcupine Tree.

5 stars Product is the work of Arman Christoff Boyles (vocals, guitar, synth) and Scott Rader (drums, bass, guitar), plus several guests. Their debut release, On Water was released in 2000, and is a concept album based on a sailor's life during the American Revolution. Although this seems like it would be an ambitious pursuit, Product successfully pulls off a classic debut.

On Water has the feel of Porcupine Tree and Pink Floyd throughout, especially with regard to the acoustics, ambience, vocals, and sound effects. Occasionally I picked up other influences, like the beautiful acoustic guitar on Without You reminds me of Gabriel-era Genesis, Water Bodies reminds me of a looser Alan Parsons Project, parts of Eye for Eye have an industrial rock feel to them, and the last two tracks remind me of Marillion's Brave album. The lyrics are well written, and easily convey the emotions of sailors during this time in history. Although musically, Boyles and Rader are not virtuosos, the focus of their music is in the meaning they are trying to convey and the atmospherics that would fit the messages in this wonderful concept. It's more or a less a combination of quiet and loud parts, each used particularly well together for the sections of the concept that suit them.

I've heard people compare Boyles singing voice to Peter Gabriel or Steve Hogarth, but to me he sounds more like a mix of Richard Wright and Steven Wilson. The delivery is especially comparable to Wilson's. However, this is only a comparison, as parts of his overall vocal range I find to be unique. He doesn't have a great voice, but he does deliver the emotion needed. For this style of music, it fits nicely.

I can't find any weaknesses on this album and enjoy it very much. It's a very original concept, approached in a somewhat Floydian fashion. The production and mixing are very well done. I'm surprised that this debut has not received the accolades and recognition it deserves. Well worthwhile masterpiece and someday to be a future classic. Five stars.

Thanks to ProgLucky for the artist addition. and to windhawk for the last updates
