Editorial Reviews

Excavations of the Mind can best be described as symphonic, complex, dynamic, versatile and ambitious. Thriving to revive and reinvent the progressive style and sound of the 70's, the album hopes to reclaim a place for symphonic rock-music in the 21st ce

4.0 out of 5 stars Very solid neo-progressive rock album May 11, 2012
Dutch progressive rock band Sky Architect released their debut album Excavations of the Mind in 2010. The band falls into the neo-prog classification in that their style is taken directly from the symphonic, progressive bands of the `70s like Yes, ELP and especially King Crimson.

Sky Architect certainly has ambition, starting off Excavations of the Mind with a 19-minute epic suite (broken into four distinct tracks) and following it up with a 12-minute song. That first suite, titled "Deep Chasm," really gives you the perfect look at what Sky Architect's sound is all about. The sprawling, meandering instrumental sections, atmospheric keyboard sections and narrative vocals all bring to mind The Flower Kings and Spock's Beard at their most epic, which in turn comes back around to Close to the Edge and In the Court of the Crimson King. It's heady stuff, and if you can handle some self-indulgent instrumental excess there's a lot to admire here.

It probably never makes the leap from good to truly great, but Excavations of the Mind is a very solid neo-progressive rock album that most fans of Spock's Beard, The Flower Kings, It Bites and of course Yes and King Crimson ought to enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars up there with August 16, 2011
Verified Purchase
I listened to this once and put it away(dumb mistake)because i had purchased several cd's this particular day but when i pulled this cd out again to give it another listen it stayed in my cd player!Excellent prog band!Buy this!!I suggest you buy this one before you purchace their second "a dying mans hymn",while still a great cd it's my opinion that their first(this one)is the best and truly deserves several listens in one sitting!Enjoy.
