Impeccable neo-prog for the third album of the Swedes (Vers Printable )
Their second album was acclaimed by the specialized press for the quality of ideas and the goodness of the collective: the Sky Architect, not content with the excellent results of "A dying man's hymn," returned two years later with an album that refines and defines the modern reading of prog played by the band. "The curious one" (an opener of 18 minutes beautiful weighs), "Elegy of a solitary giant" and "Traveller's last candle" are the highlights - and greatly extended - an album inspired by science fiction, that demobilization all the paraphernalia of the case by entering into a broad conceptual framework idea of new progressive-date and competitive. In contrast to large overture from rock opera, "A Billion Years of Solitude" opens with a slow start and placid developed for thrust, detours, shots and segments that bring to mind the lesson of the classics, Gentle Giant of all and for the occasion cosmic even Pink Floyd. Where the Sky is a contemporary group by reason of the partial waiver of the apparatus and the iconic sound of the 70s and inserting diversions: subject to adherence to the genre - as evidenced by the length and structure of the songs key - the Swedes work better on tight tracks, as evidenced by the changing nature of "Revolutions" and the imaginative sequence of "wormholes" process, combining geometry and crimsoniane outbursts heavy-prog. A hard convincing for the quality of workmanship and safety of writing: how to stand out in some way, even excessive models, the neo prog Sky is packed with full knowledge and maturity.

...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?
Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
