The other two Tangent albums are wonderful but this is something special. Thank god R.Stolt has gone, the band has really opened up on this album and finally become a proper band. Don't get me wrong i loved the Guitar playing on the first two albums but new Guitarist Jonsson is more open and this lets the others shine. If you love Yes, Caravan, Hatfield and the North and King Crimson, you'll love this. It's not all old style prog. there is lots of new ideas here which is what makes this album special and there is emotion too it's got some great lyrics. I cannot recommend this enough, buy it.

Every so often an album comes along that transcends the merely good, great or even excellent. Many albums I have listened to through the years and think yes, that is really good, I really like that. But a few seem to become something else, over and above the merely liked. Something more special and personal. A finger can’t be put on this, just something clicks. “A Place In the Queue” is certainly one of those special, personal albums.
This is the third from Andy Tillison’s band project The Tangent. What started out as a solo venture away from his main band, Parallel Or 90 Degrees quickly grew to something much bigger when Flower King, Roine Stolt came on board. After two albums, Roine decided no longer to participate in the band. This has been liberating for the band, allowing Andy more freedom to push himself compositionally and experiment with the sound and style of the band. The results are some of the best progressive rock music recorded in many years.
“A Place In The Queue” is a hugely ambitious release. Everything from the music to the sleeve design is bold in execution, just like the best prog rock should be. Using Yes’s much maligned “Tales From Topographic Oceans” as the benchmark during the recording of this album, there is much here which parallel’s the ambitions of that album. “TFTO” was Yes’s most experimental album, coming hot on the heels of their most successful recording, “Close To The Edge”. It was a bold move to produce something so radical after such a commercial and critical breakthrough album. Andy has done something of the same here. Both previous Tangent albums have been very successful in their own right, emphatically establishing a style admired by many.

Vote now for Tangent mainman Andy Tillison for an OBE for services to Prog.(Obviously he could throw it back at his leisure) Nevertheless the man deserves some sort of recognition - so I'll by myself a pint in his honour- cheers Andy.

This CD is jam packed with thought-provoking and relevant lyrics about todays great issues and society's state of fractured mental health as well as a bouncy disco song for the over 30's - honestly. Instrumentally, grown men use their unfeasibly large (Hammond) organs to great effect, women swoon etc. The first track epic - "In Earnest" shows the importance of knowing your War and post war history as it meanders through the life of a scarred veteran. "Follow your leaders" starts of a frenetic swell of sound and essays the corruption of leadership. I vote this one to be played loud on car stereos around the sink estates as the radical alternative to the Grime soundrack of disenfranchised youth.It will also annoy the hell out of the cool kids.

Sure Andy and his merry band are informed by the past but the truth is that he is no more beholdened to it than anybody else is. This is way more independant music than what passes for "indie" at the moment.What is different is that the music attempts to connect in a meaningful way with the listener in a manner which is increasing difficult in this media saturated world in which we all live. This requires a concentration span of more than 3 minutes. So be prepared to pour yourself a long drink and a have a big bag of crisps handy (personally speaking this has never been a problem.)

A special final word must go to the world's first "Pet Shop Boys go Prog" - "Sun in my eyes. Two versions included on each disc one short -one long. Some reviewers have panned this but I like it.
