4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, fresh sounding prog rock.., 18 Mar 2008
This review is from: Tinyfish (Audio CD)
Despite the diverse list of influences on their 'myspace' page, Tinyfish are really quite unique. Here and there you can pick up on little references to Rush, Marillion and even The Police, but by and large Tinyfish are fresh sounding, accessable and full of energy and original ideas.

The band members are old friends, and have worked on numerous projects in the past. This album is the culmination of over a years hard work, and it has paid off superbly. The musicianship is tight, the songs melodic and memorable. Some of the lead guitar work is brilliant, and is clearly influenced by the likes of Dave Gilmour, Alan Holdsworth and Frank Dunnery. The album, although not a concept album, does have a certain flow; the tracks glued together by some darkly intellectual poetry. The lyrics themselves are equally intelligent, but without any pomposity. There is a good balance between the upbeat and the thoughtfull on this excellent debuit album, and it's highly reccomeded. Best tracks, for me, are 'Motorville' a great rocker of an opener, with a driving rhythim and superb melody line, 'Nine months on fire' and the epic 'All hands Lost'
