"This is the difficult third album with which they overshoot the mark and risk to escape their roots
but they dont care". Andy Tillison, singer, songwriter, and keyboardist of the Swedish-British prog rock group The Tangent pulls his own leg and at the same time kiddingly prepares the gentle listener for a few changes. However, the innovations A Place In The Queue can offer, one and a half year after the brilliant The World That We Drive Through, will send every fan into raptures. A Place In The Queue is not really a concept album but all songs deal with the idea that our place in society is similar to a queue where everybody lines up. "We follow the person before us, we follow trends and religions, we act following the advertisements we see", explains Tillison. The music of The Tangent is, of course, a fresh, varied and melodic progressive rock combining tradition, innovation, construction and improvisation. And, most of all, enthusiasm for playing and approachability in an individual style and this is the true opposite of conformism.
This Special edition comes housed in deluxe digipak format with a bonus disc containing an additional seven tracks recorded with the Queue sessions.
