4.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars - progressive space rock with female vocals, October 15, 2010
By 
This review is from: Proximal Distance (Audio CD)
US progressive rock band Proximal Distance released their self-titled debut in 2010. The band takes a conceptual, atmospheric approach to the progressive rock formula, sounding at times like Yes, Pink Floyd, Star One and Marillion, all with female vocals.

This is an interesting album. It's a sprawling, ambitious, conceptual album that brings together Yes-inspired progressive rock with a Pink Floyd meets Star One space rock feel. It's - I don't know - mood music of a sort, in that it sets a certain tone that you can't help but get drawn into, like some sort of dreaming state. The female vocals are strong and not overly operatic or dramatic, and they are a great counterpart to the atmospheric keyboards. The songs average about 6 minutes, but there are a couple of very long tracks, like the 14-minute closing epic "Expanding Universe." The album drags a bit at times, and something about the production seems...off, but for the most part this was an enjoyable album.

This is a strong and memorable debut from a band that shows a great deal of potential. If you're interested in progressive rock and/or bands with female vocalists, Proximal Distance is well worth discovering.
