Rain of Thought - A Realist's View Of Hope. 2000 USA

A really good example of modern instrumental progressive rock music. Complex, but subdued. Fantastic violin work throughout. Bass and drummer are putting on a clinic despite it not being an energetic release – almost a pure jazz approach to the rhythms. I would’ve preferred a more affected guitar tone, as the music seems so perfect for it, but still an excellent album. Features former Gnosis-mate Mike Ezzo (Newcross) on drums and percussion.
