Lands End - The Lower Depths (2CD)
Transience is Lands End keyboard player Fred Hunters side project. On this new album, Primordial, the Lands End influence is even more pronounced as many of the tracks were recorded at the studio sessions for their new album, which is due later this year. All the other Lands End members play significant parts on this recording with Jeff McFarland contributing three compositions and co-writing two others.
Guitarist Francisco Neto supplies some of his most melodic work to date, while Jeff McFarlands vocal delivery is the perfect vehicle for his lyrics. Mark Lavallees easily recognised drum work compliments Freds great keyboard textures and bass work.
Long expansive tracks with lots of instrumental work give the guys time to work their own special brand of Symphonic progressive.
Not only is there over an hours worth of Transience music here there is also over 70 minutes of MP3 material of live, alternate versions and tracks initially intended for this album but replaced at a later stage in the production process.
A must for all Lands End fans.
