    I Am The Manic Whale: Gathering the Waters

    This was released late last year. I didnít see much discussion here about this great release so I thought I would bring it back to the top, as it were. This new album is fantastic! I just received my copy from Bandcamp recently and itís in my top 5 so far for the year! There are hints of many groups, but this band definitely is NOT a copy band. If you are a fan of Moon Safari, Alan Parsons, Neal Morse, The Flower Kings, Gentle Giant you need to head on over to Bandcamp and order a copy! You will be very happy you did!!! These guys are extremely talented and they can definitely write great music with the best of them! Any other fans?
    So much music....so little time....

    Their debut album was a stunner. Unfortunately I don't like their second full-length release. At all...

    From the musical stand-point, second mission is absolutely unsuccessful. IMO.

    This band slipped by me without notice but I just listened and am glad I did. Very good and enjoyable music. I concur with the description of their sound but I'd say it reminds me of a mixture of Spock's Beard and the current Kaipa with a hint of Crack The Sky in some of the sung melodies.

    No matter what anyone says, you are the decider of how you will listen to music.
