Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2012-05-20
Ultra high end prog, for want of a better description. 99% instrumental music, with killer guitars, synths, drums, bass. Nothing indulgent or blatant, like the trappings a lot of “prog” falls into. This isn’t a showcase for musicianship, it’s a genuine exploration into the trippiness that fine musicianship can take us. Like all things Bitches Brew, Weather Report, Soft Machine, Matching Mole etc did before us, with a healthy dose of post rockisms too. Just kick ass.

1) (6:24) funky synth w/ proggy rock fusion guitar feel, stops-starts, cool jam
2) (5:09) launches into some bad ass smoking prog rock
3) (4:05) full on smoking prog w/ spacey intro, wanky guitars
4) (7:30) fem vocs appear in intro, then a mid paced trippy jam
5) (2:34) trippy analog Tomita feel, urgent and driving synthy
6) (6:50) latin rock feel, Santana guitar wankery comes to mind, epic and really dense
7) (7:47) trippy slightly funky mix, spaced out, with brief vocals and an overall heavy cool beat, epic shit
8) (3:31) cinematic, mid paced, cool guitars
9) (5:57) well they saved the best for last: a wall of intensity that is rivaled by none, just balls out rockin that takes a breather with a sultry bridge midway, comes back stronger, THE SHIT
