    ^^ Such is the nature of music, in general, eliciting a wide range of opinions and responses. Probably due to the fact that we're all different. :)

    And a resounding yes to the band being Prog!

    Indeed! It contains those epic trademarks we all love - crescendos, quiet bits, multiple themes - yet never seems forced, at least to these ears.
  3. The Tea Club - If / When ~ excellent 5th album

    I've listened to this album several times and it's a real cracker. Unabashedly Prog, yet both accessible and complex at the same time. The band have a sound of their own with there still being a...

    Bill,

    You likely know this already, but the disc is up on Progstreaming. I for one enjoy all their albums. The Crush of Night suite (both halves) is outstanding!
