This review is from: Excavation of the Mind (Audio CD)
The debut album from Sky Architect sees them heading the road marked symphonic prog, and mighty fine they are at it too. Even better, "Excavations Of The Mind" is (yay!) a concept album dealing with the dark and disturbing psyche of a mentally troubled man. It's complex and expansive music, yet it stays melodic enough not to scare off interested passers by.

There are echoes (heh, heh) of Pink Floyd, King Crimson and Porcupine Tree in their music, but it remains original and inventive throughout. The Dutch band got together at a music school in their native land, so they're certainly good musicians. Luckily, their compositions match their technique, especially on the opening four part suite 'Deep Chasm'.

Elsewhere the lengthy explorations of 'The Grey Legend' and the title track give plenty of opportunity for the discerning progster to absorb and enjoy Sky Architects new take on the building blocks of classic progressive rock.

It's a great introduction to a new band, and comes beautifully packaged with artwork from illustrator Mark Wilkinson, best know his work with Marillion, Fish and Judas Priest. Definitely worth checking out.
