5.0 classican actual bundle of sticks is smarter than you are | June 24th 13

When listening to this for the first time, I was turned off by it being a completely instrumetal album, devoid of any vocals. By the time I hit 'The Loved Ones', I was devoting my full attention to the album. It's utter perfection, and if any prog-freaks haven't checked this out yet, you're just doing it wrong when it comes to progressive rock.

I can honestly say I don't think I've ever really heard anything like this. Yes, most prog bands have classical elements, but they can often be dominated by wankery instead of truly beautiful, sweeping music. The Enid though have decided to take the best of both worlds, and consequently created one of the single greatest prog albums I've ever heard, as well as one of the most truly creative in the genre. People seem to forget that prog means progressive, so therefore bands like Talking Heads, Sonic Youth, and even the Velvet Underground could basically qualify. With that said, this is truly what prog should be about in my eyes. Making music that is both interesting and a sense of progression. Prog rock shouldn't be about who can play the longest solo or whatever, this is what it should truly be. Maybe this is a 5, I'll inspect through further listening.

Yes, it's neo-classical idol worship and, yes, it's as gentle as gentle can be, but In the Region of Summer Stars is too good to dismiss in these manners - all the compositions are incredibly strong and, refreshingly for the 70s, there's barely any blues influence to be found.
