Mind Sky - Timewise (2005)

The debut album from this US band.

Symphonic prog can mean a lot to a lot of different people. The band and this album is listed in this category in some music websites. I am not sure if I agree.

Mind Sky is a no less than a seven piece strong band. That is two keyboards, one Chapman Stick player, one guitarist, one bassist, one drummer and one vocalist. Josh Gleason is the vocalist and he does a good job. 

The music is pretty dynamic and is leaning pretty heavy on AOR and neo-prog. The songs are pretty long so yes, this is a symphonic prog album. I have to give them that. The music is also pretty rich on details too. 

Unfortunate for me and others who has the chance to listen to this album, there is no really good songs here. The album is walking in well trodden footsteps of the greats in this music. It also has a very typical US sound. A very clean and radio friendly sound without having any songs a radio would play. This is one of those obscure US prog albums and will probably remains so too. It has no good songs, but is still rich on details. Hence my rating.

2.5 points
