setting drum levels can equal music! February 21, 2011
Written by syncopatico
Ah, the glory days of late-1960ís/early-1970ís English prog-rock drumming (and drumming in general)! Back from a time when young adventurous drummers were influenced by jazz and possessed some swing and finesse to their playing. Unlike more recent years when young drummers are more influenced by sheer technique (hand/foot speed to the detriment of an overall musicality) and rigid time-keeping (the results of the prevalence of the click-track, unwavering 4/4 dance music and Pro Tools uniformity). Here you can hear Michael Gilesí excellent drumming skills (impressive double bass drum work!?) but at the same time his deft ride cymbal sticking and crisp snare accenting maintains a flowing feel--something which so many of todayís heavy-handed, pounding drummers noticeably lack!

This is definitely my favourite period of Soundscapes. And although some prefer the latest Churchscapes as more accessible and true, there is something positive about them as they lack those moving and dark timbres and emotions of That Read more

This is a very nice version of Hope. The Bridge Between is one of my favorite records and this piece is a wonderful example of what Trey Gunn brought to the mix that eventually became the Double Trio version Read more

Iím surprised we only have a bootleg cassette source for that one. Why ? Because that show was professionally recorded. It was part of the "Musicorama" concerts, broadcasted in France every sunday night by a radio (Europe 1), and I Read more
