Another Perfect Prog Side Project!!,
This review is from: Wheel of Life (Audio CD)
Well I love hunting out new music and when i found this CD I was bowled over (eventually). This CD took me 2 or 3 listenings to get my ears round it...but I see that as a compliment to the material and the bands direction. I believe if you like an album too easlily you will just as easily tire of it.
This is another typical Prog side project led by Jonas Riengold (Bass Player of the Flower Kings). This album is a great mix of styles with a bit of jazz rock edge. It is orginal and like a breath of fresh air to listen too.
As you might expect the Bass playing is quite prominent..but what the hell its the Bass Players project...but hey what a Bass player he is too.
Karmakanic is for the prog purist I would say... its smooth, exact, calculated and well excecuted music.
Ignore this album at your peril. If you do not own it yet then it is your loss. Listen, be open minded and give it a chance....you'll end up loving it. I know I did and it remains one of my best CD finds from the past couple of years.
I much prefer this material to that of the Flower Kings and can't wait for them to release the third album (second album 'Entering the Spectra')
