5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning prog, stunning progression 29 Oct 2011
By Jim
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The qualities that define progressive music are notoriously hard to pin down. But if progressive is to mean anything at all, it must be about change and moving forward, rather than stagnating. By this definition The Tangent are the very epitome of progressive rock, with an ever evolving sound, and a seemingly ever-changing line-up. The latter point was underlined at a recent gig in Southend, when band leader Andy Tillison started saying `the last time we played here...' then checked himself - actually he was the only person still in the band five years on.

But also implied in the fundamental definition of `progressive' is the idea that for change to be desirable it must bring improvement. Is this what is on offer with The Tangent's 6th studio album `Comm'?

The answer is a resounding `Yes!' There is certainly much that will be familiar to existing Tangent fans: progressive change is more akin to evolution than revolution. Which is good - judging by the attendees at the aforementioned Club Riga gig, Tangent fans are more than averagely likely to be middle-aged men who probably appreciate their decidedly unrevolutionary slippers and a comfy armchair as much as an earful of cool prog rock.

However, as well as new personnel, there are some exciting tweaks in both the playing and song-writing departments, that take `Comm' beyond the merely good and commendable into the realms of the absolute must-have album. As a result, `Comm' is sure to be considered by many as ranking amongst the very best prog albums not only of 2011, but - dare I make so bold a claim - of the whole Century so far!

4.0 out of 5 stars Oooo Interesting 19 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Comm Contains just three songs Five if you get the c.d or the vinyl that includes the cd. All three songs are interconnected in both lyrical theme and musical theme to some degree the opening song is definably the best of the three. However they all have their own thing too which is cool. Zippy Sax, flashy Keyboards, Floaty bass, splashy drums and soaring guitars, That what this album contains in a nut shell, the Opening track is 20 odd minutes long and contains, saxophone, foundation like bass rumbling in the bottom and some flashy retro sounding keyboards from the 70's, and some inventive use of the guitar, too. The drums are well recorded, with a nice sounding snare drum, and well played. This opening 20 odd minute song is about communication in the modern age from what I can tell, after a very playful section the music dies down to some piano, and wizzy keyboard only section that sounds quite sad. with a bit of effected bass made to sound like a trombone or something. I like it but this won't be everyones taste in music, lots on offer here and creativity is very high but it can be rather complex for those not use to it. This album is definitely not going to be everyone's taste as it pretty complex and it is not all that singalongy either, and wouldn't come close to passing as a regular rock album. That said it has it's own special charm for me though not quite as good as earlier albums it still pretty solid and I feel it genuinely a four start alum since that means I like it and it is way more than an 'it is ok' sort of album at least for me

4.0 out of 5 stars Lacking the edge 27 Oct 2011
By KOS
Format:Audio CD
I want to like this CD but after playing it a number of times I find it rather sterile. The musicanship cannot be faulted and prog rock leanings are to be appreciated but having found a format and a particular sound (much use of upbeat tempo synth)it is used to excess with frequent repetitive refrain. Those familiar with "A Place in the Queue" will not find much whiich is new here. I also find the vocals lacking resonance - it is sometimes difficult to understand the words not becuase the vocalist has poor diction but simply the vocals become subsumed in the mix and becomes part of a wall of sound. However there is much too like here hence the 4 stars. The Tangent are considerably better and more creative than some other contempoary progressive bands I just wish that after the final track I wanted to immediately play the CD again (hence not 5 stars). Incidentally the last track is a rendition of "Watcher of the Skies" (with some other famous elements thrown in for good measure) - unfortunately the quality of the recording of this track is not up to par

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Yet! 3 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD
Having heard The Tangents latest i was impressed, it has a blistering opener, then sails along rocking and twiddling! Love this album. Pity Fly from here by Yes couldnt have been more like this (sorry guys) There are more bands out there now beating Yes at their own game and sounding fresher and have a "zing" in their music.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Ode to Tech 3 Aug 2012
By Kurt Harding - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Since it burst on the scene, The Tangent has been one of the most innovative and imaginative prog bands on the scene. With a slimmed-down line-up that features ace guitarist Luke Machin, the band's sixth effort is yet another winner.
Comm is an ode to tech, which is in line with the band's continuing contemporary focus. There are two extended pieces that prog lovers can really get behind. The first is Wiki Man, a twenty minute opus full of drama and tasty change-ups. Then there is the excellent, spacey sixteen and a half minute Titanic Calls Carpathia to set the mind soaring. I also really enjoy the much shorter Tech Support Guy with clever lyrics and a punchy vibe. Of the two bonus tracks, the cover of the Genesis tune Watcher of the Skies is most enjoyable.
Comm: Limited comes housed in a very attractive six-panel digipak and comes with a useful booklet that contains lyrics, pertinent album info, and more great artwork by Ed Unitsky. If you have liked past Tangent albums, you should like this as well.
