Wobbler Rites at Dawn4.5
Very well may be the best progressive rock band together right now. Sounds like Gentle Giant and Yes and their own progressive creativity all at the same time, and at the same time, I'll be frank. It's way better than their last two records because they got a new vocalist that isn't annoying.

Converge Axe to Fall3.5
As far as Converge goes, this album doesn't do much for me. The guest appearances really disappointed me, especially the cave in one, (two vocalists, no vocals) but it still seemed like a pretty good album. I was never super duper stoked, but this album doesn't stand up to the last three. Still pretty damn good though. Better than Jane Doe? That's just silly.

This is a great album, but it does NOT measure up to their previous album, Flight of The Flynns. They went by Kunek when that was released though.
Gazpacho Tick Tock5.0
This album is amazing, from beginning to end, with influence coming from across the board, with Desert Storm sounding like a progressive Muse bastard song and Tick Tock parts 1, 2, and 3 being the most epic 23 minutes ever. You will not regret listening to this album.

One of the most original, fresh bands I have heard in a while. Ben Verellen of Harkonen is on lead vocals and guitar, and he continues to mess with timing, although in THIS band, it is infused with pretty rock. This album infuses a slew of different sounds and influences into a tasty musical soup.

I think Videotape Seascape is their best song yet, and this is the only release it's located on. Also, better version of Highways of gold that's a little bit edgier.
