Half Past Four – Rabbit in the Vestibule
There has been quite a buzz about this album, first released in 2008, on various progressive rock forums, so it was interesting to get my hands on it at last. The album is certainly an interesting ride, very intricate with some thrilling instrumentation heavily influenced by fusion and King Crimson. Honey-throated singer Kyree Vibrant is also quite a find with a great range. Sounding a bit like Thieves Kitchen on steroids, this is challenging yet entertaining and fun music, both coolly modern and pleasantly retro, and comes recommended to those who like their prog with plenty of challenges and also a few surprises!
