there are few artists that deserve the full 5 stars, even though even seems to give their favourite band 'top marks' regardless of how good an album/single is.
the first time i heard PRR's music, was at a live show - they were supporting oceansize (a worthy act to play with the 'size, i thought) and i believe that is where their real talent shows.
between songs there was always some sort of "background noise" making their entire set seamless. and not a word was uttered except a quiet, "thank you" at the end.
4 part harmonies are what strikes the listen most on the first listen, and the way everything seems to just flow together.
this band cannot be musically compared to anyone specifically, but influences could be drawn, perhaps, from Pink Floyd, the Beach Boys and/or Rage Against The Machine. perhaps, i say.
the music is progressive, melodic and driving. it changes moods, yet flows brilliantly. I have not a copy of their album, but heard all the songs at their gig. i have purchased other releases which, though fantastic, did not totally capture the live sound that i have experienced of them. so if there is one thing i can think of to criticize, it would be that.
however, don't let that put you off - they are a trully talented 5 piece, who can do magic with sounds.
