The Review:

Timeline’s music basically is a perfect blend of late 70's style hard rock, 80'sAOR and neo-prog along with 90's to present day melodic prog-metal. I read that the band gets compared to "Kansas". "Journey", "Rush" and "Dream Theater". I can’t say that Timeline is a clone of those bands, I would say that they probably are influenced by those bands.

On the debut, there’s a healthy mix of soft ballads, hard rockers and some quirky semi-complex progressive numbers. Each song has strong melodic sense, and keeps the listener interested from beginning to end. Now Timeline isn’t the most original sounding band but they do combine past ideas into a nice package of well written and executed instrumentation. This is one of those CDs that gets played a lot especially good to play with non-prog fans around. I look forward to more from these guys!

Timeline has a good future ahead of itself and hopefully will be popular enough to play at any one of the North American progressive rock festivals in the near future. If you like Progressive Hard Rock, then look no further than Timeline. Pardon the pun, but the music hear is “timeless”. You will enjoy this for years to come.
