Joining Hal are guitarist Uri Gatton and Athan Gailis on woodwinds, brass and MIDI horns to give us listeners an all instrumental release with intense symphonic chamber rock that has a slight RIO vibe to it. There are some quiet, haunting and surreal moments that counterbalance the chaotic ones. This release will satisfy most listeners that quench the thirst of the more chaotic blend of progressive rock. Even though I won’t be playing this CD as often as others in my collection, I would definitely recommend this release highly.
