5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great album - quite original! June 6, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've listened to this album a number of times and continue to enjoy it. The reviewer who described it as progressive rock-jazz fusion pretty much captured what I felt was the genre of the music. The title piece is apparently inspired somehow by the 70's SciFi movie "Colossus" (or maybe the book) for what that's worth.

I actually had some trouble getting into the first track the first few times I listened to it, but I have to admit my appreciation for it has improved with repeated listenings.

I am a real fan of a variety of contemporary progressive rock groups (Pendragon, Knight Area, Sylvan, IQ, etc), and I thought this was a great album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Complex yet melodic progressive rock-jazz fusion September 6, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Just a quick review of this debut album from a relatively obscure Wisconsin-based trio that makes great instrumental prog with a touch of fusion, without the "metal".

Parallel Mind is Joe Babiak (drums, percussion, flugelhorn!, trumpet), Nibandh Nadkarni (keyboards) and William Kopecky (6-string electric fretless bass). Their very impressive website claims that their influences are Yes, Rush and Planet X, though I also hear some occassional similarities to Niacin, Jordan Rudess, and Happy The Man.

With some guest musicians (guitars and wordless vocals) on some tracks, they produce a very full sound. The compositions are all strong, very interesting and well-played. Kopecky probably has the most notoriety with his virtuoso bass-playing in other bands (Par Lindh Project, Kopecky, etc.); but Babiak's drumming is Neil Peart-ish top-notch, and with influences and comparisons to Derek Sherinian, Rudess and Wakeman, you can rest assured that Nadkarni's keyboards are superb.

With 65-minutes of non-stop great music, this is a CD that everyone should seek out. Listen to the sound samples on their website, then buy the CD. I hope it's only the first of many from this promising band.

I value interesting music that is played and recorded well. This cd's rating was based on:
Music quality = 9.4/10; Performance = 9/10; Production = 9/10; CD length = 10/10.
Overall score weighted on my proprietary scale = 9.3 ("5 stars")

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome debut release! February 18, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Parallel Mind's debut is a must have for those who enjoy Prog Rock with less vocals and more music. Great, unique sound that you can just listen to over and over, and very original too. A wonderful blend for mainly being bass, keyboards, and percussion. I enjoy it as an over 40 listener and my teens enjoy it too! Wish the bad had stayed together for another release or two...........Great job bro!
