is one of
those odd commodities in modern rock that really doesn't fit in stylistic in any
box and they are constantly developing, moving the boundaries and are
re-inventing themselves on each album. The description that they are intelligent
progressive rock covering every nuance between Porcupine Tree and Coheed and
Cambria might not be that far off the mark.
transformation that began with their "Wake Pig" from 2005, an album that helped
them establish themselves as something unique sound and music wise, was
redefined and mastered on their very atmospheric and innovative "The End is
begun" from 2007, where they found a fine balance between the E-guitar and the
acoustic guitar and they are tapping on the history of Three on
re-recording songs that previously only were available on bootlegs and cassette
an insight in the background of the band musically as well as sound wise, the
transformation to where they are today seems very logical. An interesting
retrospect into the sonically history of Three, and an album that is
building a bridge between the past and the present and it should broaden the
knowledge among progressive rock fans for Three even further.
Not a new
album from one of the most unique bands in modern progressive rock, but still
interesting enough for genre fans to take notice and at least give this one a
listen or two...
