The Tangent

What do you think of this act? I really enjoyed David Jackson's saxophone in VdGG, and I'm starting to appreciate FK/Stolt more and more. His style has been a bit too slick for my 'default' prog taste. I might be wrong, but is seems to me that FK/Stolt has taken a jazzier, less AORean turn lately (on e.g. Unfold the Future), which I welcome.

Well here's the URL to this new act

(update: I just saw that there are already Tangent-material on the playlist; I'm still interested in people's opinions)

Heard it and had to buy it.....no change there then!!!

I loved "The music that died alone" when I heard it on AM and ordered it straight away. Unfortunately it's on import and is taking an age to arrive but there's always AM to keep me going.

Thumbs up Like it

All their stuff (if Neil Peart can say "stuff" so can I) that I heard I like. Unfortunately my CD budget is not as large as Keith's.

If only you knew, man!!!

I'm about to remortgage my home to pay for them all. I will have to start looking for a part time job if things keep going this way. It will have to allow me to play AM all day long though.

A few things

Keith - don't take my job, I need to find one!

Zvinki - Neil also says in that song "Excitement so thick you could cut it with a knife" - not one his more profound songs!

Byz - The jazzier feel of the later Flower Kings is mainly due to Jonas Reingold and Zoltan Csorz joining the band. Jonas is awesome. I think Roine always has had this side to him (he's been around a long time) - it's just a better outlet in Tangent. Maybe it's my lack of culture, but I find the other vocals in Tangent too "sour". But, it's an impressive piece of music.

My music budget is almost nil nowadays, but I'm still living off the fat (like a bear hibernating).
