I bought it because of a review in a sunday paper giving it 1 star out of 5 and the statement, "pure prog madness". The standard reviewer likes good short snappy 3 minute rock/punk songs - and this doesn't deliver that. So I thought it must be alright!

This is more ambitious, exciting and fresh than anything I have heard in a long time now. This is a world away from the bland music that tends to permeate the charts at the moment.

Be brave and give it a go . . . but . . .

The thing is, I think you will either love it or hate it - there isn't much middle-ground here. So if you love chart music, you probably won't like this. However, if you like rock and have a secret admiration for prog (Yes, Pink Floyd, Hawkwind, Flaming Lips, Secret Machines etc.) or rock with a prog tendency (Queen, Led Zep, Radiohead, Muse, Porcupine Tree), then there is every chance you'll love it. This band doesn't really sound like any of them though - it is quite new.

Each song is solid and exciting in its own way - and they all fit togther to make a consitently good album - no two songs are the same, or similar, and there are no tracks that you want to skip. I have listened to it every day since I bought it back in April and am not growing tired of it.

I really hope this band keep going and keep growing. There aren't many albums that I really love - but this is definitely one of them - and I hope there are more in the pipeline . . .

There does seem to be a definite upsurge in interest in prog rock. Not the usual smug battering the genre usually gets, but something more positive and acceptable is abound. With the likes of The Mars Volta, Porcupine Tree, Coheed and Cambria and Oceansize all getting attention in the mainstream rock press, bands are clearly embracing the likes of Rush, Yes, King Crimson and Pink Floyd with relish. Latest new kids on the block are Pure Reason Revolution from London. This, their debut full length album is full of youthful energy and clearly a band for the future. These guys love harmonies and they are in abundance all over this album. "Bullitts Dominae" is a perfect example. Gorgeous melody and ecstatic chorus propel this song into the stratosphere. The lengthy, "The Bright Ambassadors Of Morning" also has some beautifully arranged vocals spread out over its 12 minutes with most of the vocal duties carried out by guitarist John Courtney and bassist Chloe Alper throughout. Both work wonderfully together. Opener "Aeropause" is a spacey instrumental in the best Floyd tradition with lots of typical Gilmour slide guitar. It's a slight pity that a few of the tracks here date from their previous mini-album "Cautionary Tales From The Brave", but as a finished work this album gels nicely as a cohesive whole.

This is a very assured debut from a very promising young band, whether you embrace prog rock or not. This is fresh and exciting rock music and this band should gain the recognition which "The Dark Third" indicates they truly deserve.

My first encounter with PRR was the 12 minute single 'The Bright Ambassadors of Morning' - an excellent track, which unfortunately, seems to have appeared on every subsequent release and has now been done to death. PRR - if you're reading, please take note. That aside, it is a wonderful, sprawling track which changes direction just at the right moments, when repetition threatens boredom and throws the listener enough curve balls to maintain interest.

I've read many reviews of PRRs music since and they certainly appear to have been pigeon-holed with progressive rock. But what's in a category or a genre? I have spent a lot of time in the past, debating what is and what isn't prog. There are certainly prog influences here - most notably the Floydian guitar and extended workouts, but it really doesn't matter what one might call it - just listen to the music, it's refreshing to hear something a little out of the ordinary when so much around is bog standard. I particularly like the manner in which many tracks segue into each other, making the listening experience seamless and all the more enjoyable.

The vocal harmonies are very strong, if tonally, slightly bland at times. The musicianship is tight and there is enough going on in the background, to ensure repeated spins reap rewards. But I think they can improve on this and I eagerly await their next release, which should reflect lessons learned from this effort and will, maybe, show all of us their true direction. If Amazon had allowed me, I would have placed this at 3.5 stars, but in the absence of that option, I'll upgrade it to 4.

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.
