The Review:

This is my first exposure to the music of Wilton Said. I must admit I never heard of him before but that soon has changed upon several spins of his latest release, 'The Butterfly Plague'. It's by far one of the better, dare I say slightly more original progressive pop-rock bands to come cross my hands in a long while.. Wilton voice strongly reminds me of the late Geoff Mann especially on 'Circus alive', 'Mom', Halos' for example, other than that his voice is very fresh and unique.

The main styles that can be found on 'The Butterfly Plague' are rock, pop, prog and theatrical. The music isnít that complex that even non proggrers can get into it. Itís slowly becoming one of my favorite releases of 2004. If youíre looking for something with more originality than most releases and less metal based, then give Wilton Saidís The Butterfly Plague a try. Highly recommended and in my top favorites of 2004.
