    Hobson's Choice - New Horizons

    If you don't know this one-shot band's album from 1996, chances are you'll like it. If you already know it, or once you've listened, share your thoughts. I don't want to color your impressions with any comparisons.

    That overall cover art looks different than my CD. Maybe the picture is the same, but mine is on a white background. Too lazy to go pull it from the collection to check.

    I seem to recall liking it. Sort of a symphonic-fusion type thing, iirc. Also I think there was a loose connection to Woodenhead, that had an album on Laser's Edge about 20 years ago.

    Yes, the cover art got a bit of a rehaul, at least for Bandcamp. And Jim(?) Robinson of Woodenhead gets a shout out in the credits. Your memory is intact!

    Thanks for starting this thread. Didn't know the band and after listening to some of their stuff on Bandcamp I bought the CD from on of the Discogs-sellers.

    I had a feeling some who would like this were missing out!

    And Woodenhead's drummer Mark Whitaker is credited for playing percussion.
    As you can see the CD finally arrived. I like it. Reminds me a bit of Iluvatar, while the Mellotron sometimes has the same sound as on Crack The Sky's Safety In Numbers.
    I would describe it as a 90's version of Yes/Genesis, but this is certainly no tribute-band.
    Thanks again for bringing this up.
