Out of the three musicians, Iíve only heard music by Guitarist Glenn Snelwar (who is best known for his contributions to Gordian Knotís debut). The other is Drummer Mark Zonder of Fates Warning fame. Itís fantastic to finally hear Michael Manringís bass work. His fretless bass parts are melodic but never overwhelming. Some players seems to take the lead thus taking away from the composition, so Michaelís work here is very welcomed by these ears.
From beginning to end, Torn Between Dimensions takes you on a musical journey that Snelwar describes as ďa concept album, but not in the strict sense of the word.Ē Although each song can be heard on itís own, to get the full effect one must invest the time and listen to the whole thing. Youíll find yourself hitting the repeat button after the last song ends.
At War With Selfís debut Torn Between Dimensions is one of my favorite releases of 2005 as well as all time. I canít recommend this enough, especially to fanís of instrumental progressive and rock music.
