The Review:

The second album by Combination Head called Progress? almost follows up where their self titled debut left off. The difference this time is the addition of vocals to the mix.. Joining Paul Birchall (producer, song writer and keyboards), Keith Ashcroft (guitar and bass) and Paul Burgess (drums and percussion) this time around are Gareth Moulton (vocals & guitars) and Dominic Finley (bass). Phil Knight (drums) plus several lead vocalists, thus giving Combination Head a wider musical base beyond instrumentals.

Combination Head creates a perfect blend of complex keyboard sounds with the melodic song based compositions. Just imagine a blend of melodic ELP & Camel combined with that of Alan Parsons Project and then you get a a basic idea of the band‘s sound. I must say even with the inclusion of the vocals on this album, I wish it was one so there can be some sort of a recognition with the band. Other than that there's not a dud track on the album thus fallling under the ‘very recommended release for 2007’ category.
