Product Description

From the Artist

"THE TANGET is based around songs. We may be musically ambitious and complex, but usually at the heart of each piece lies a very simple song, something that we hope most people can relate to. Sometimes they are stories, sometimes observations, sometimes sad, sometimes funny. We embellish our music both symphonically and contrapuntally, use jazz, familiar progressive rock methods, often refer to the Canterbury bands and frequently intersperse the songs with improvisation. But they are still songs first and foremost. We don't sing songs about the usual prog subjects, no hobbits, orcs or subterranean worlds, we've always sung about real things and tried to establish progressive music as something that is relevant to life in the time we live. That, above all typifies THE TANGENT." - Andy Tillison (vocalist / keyboardist)

5.0 out of 5 stars never mind the credits, here's the Tangent December 13, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a really great release, and I find myself in total disagreement with some of the other reviews here which seem to focus on drumming far too much. Besides which, I think a drummer who has been trusted with playing for Joan Armatrading, Jethro Tull, Camel and 10cc might know a bit more about what to do on a Tangent song than us guys reviewing the thing. And Andy Tillison who's like second only to Jordan Rudess might know a bit more about who to ask to drum to his music than we do.

Song writing and lyrics are outstandingly superb, (as usual) production awesome, really cool vibes, at the time of writing the album is number one in the top US prog album chart for the YEAR so far so it looks to me that these reviews here are a little out of line. Perhaps Flower Kings fans who are a bit sore that their favorite musos aren't in the band any more? Looks a bit that way to me. I mean in one of these other reviews we get someone saying that the drumming is so poor it reminds him of ALAN WHITE. You mean Alan White, the drummer who played for Yes on Tales From Topographic Oceans? and Relayer? and Drama? Going for the One? 90125? Big Generator? oh and the drummer who played for John Lennon? Yes. he sounds like a bit of a dud doesn't he!!! Well guys, you have your favorite musicians and I have my favorite bands. The first song on this album (Where R they Now?) is like the best piece they've done so far, sends shivers down my spine and the opening 3 minutes and a bit is like the best prog rock you never heard man. "Paroxetine" really rawks and "Perdu Dans Paris" is just sublimely gorgeous music with awesome lyrics.

5.0 out of 5 stars this review covers all the tangent albums February 6, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Every release through the date of this review can be covered the same. Every listen makes me stop part way through a certain song and just say "wow, this group is just great". This happens on every single album, the words, the instrumentals, the whole feel. Just great compositions, jazzy, then great rock and rhythm.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sonic Delight At Every Turn in Their Musical Voyages January 3, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This band continues to prove to be a delight for the ears. I doubt that its authenticity and musical quality will ever see the light of day on American commercial radio. Yet, this makes the whole experience that much more special.
