I heard about DeeExpus on the Progzilla Podcast and saw that they were supporting Marillion (A huge favourite of mine) in their upcoming tour. With Marillion Keyboardist mark Kelly on keys I knew I had a chance of loving it, but WOW. What a great album! From the opening track, Me and my downfall, with a fairly meaty rock sound through to the beautiful and spine tingling Marty and the Magic Moose, this album oozes quality, thoughtfulness and musical excellence.Then comes the core of this album. The King of Number 33. Brilliantly written it carries you on a journey, a bus journey in this case, and constantly surprises you. I have not sat and listened, just listened to an album so much for years. This has given me more spine tingling moments than any album for ages. Beuatiful guitar solo's powerful riffs, wonderfully complex keybaord solo's and amazing percussion, rounded off by great vocals and harmonies. This is more than just perpetuating prog rock, it is taking it somewhere new and altogether more contemporary while holding on to the soul, the intelligence and the pure musicianship of prog at its very best.
