Style: Progressive Rock
Release date: October 26th 2009

Three 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.

The 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 "Revisions"; re-recording songs that previously only were available on bootlegs and cassette tapes.

Giving us 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...
