One of the best prog rock CDs I've heard recently. This band have toured with the likes of Pallas and are totally at home in such company !! Whilst those who like vintage Genesis prog music will like this, it is in fact refreshingly original. Some lovely melodies and some complex prog themes and some minimalist chill out moments too. If you like prog-rock, ignore this band at your peril... distant planet
Billed as the masters of symphonic prog this album is an interesting of styles and influences. Folky in parts, rocky in others.
Vocals are good and male for a change. Both lyrics and music are involving and all in all this album is a good listen.
I will be looking at The Gift's other offerings. Russell Whyman
