WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT: Modern progressive rock band throws the kitchen sink at you and…it works!

SOME WORDS, PHRASES AND CLAUSES ABOUT THIS RECORD: Music with a shit-ton of 16th notes, time signatures without 4’s in them, and throwing the back pages of the chord book at you – that’s Thank You Scientist in their first EP also use violins and horns along with the gutiars and keyboards you expect from a prog band.

At times, they sound a bit like fellow prog travelers Coheed and Cambria, but on this album they don’t have a dense storyline that will take 418 albums to resolve. These are just five tracks with good guitar riffs, jazz, intriguing vocals from Salvatore Marrano, excellent musicianship, and enough oddities to keep you guessing.

 GRADE: A-: I don’t particularly like the drum sound, but I can live with that. This is a quite intriguing debut EP.
