The Mute Gods – Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me

Print

 

Behind the rather strange band name The Mute Gods hides none other than Nick Beggs. A well known and established name in prog rock for his contribution to projects like Fish On Friday, Lifesigns and Lonely Robot, as well his involvement in Steven Wilson’s solo band and touring with Steve Hackett and Rick Wakemann.

He has written the songs whilst on tour with Steven Wilson and Steve Hackett, and it really comes as no surprise that the material leans heavily towards the newer British prog rock scene. Helping him out on this album are Marco Minnemann (Drums) and Roger King (Keyboards), and Nick Beggs handles bass and vocals himself.

And “Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me” never really explores and takes off… no this is a smooth and gentle ride with no real extraordinary moments. Actually I feel a bit disappointed because of the unfulfilled potential this band possesses. I do like the album and might have had too high expectations.

A solid release never-the-less, and one fans of the above mention bands and artists shouldn’t miss out on.  You can’t put a finger on the deliverance and production, it’s just that I miss the songs that stick in your head, the ones you want to go back to over and over…

So put on your headphones and dive into the introvert journey they take us on because there’s plenty to take in…

When I kicked this site off back in 2003, I had no idea that it would turn into what it has become. I am very proud of what we've done and achieved over the years. Musically I have a soft spot for 80s inspired hard rock, but my favourite music and bands are all to be found in the progressive universe these days.
