Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Reign Of Kindo's emphasis on combining the worlds of indie and jazz create one hell of an exciting sound" --Cosmosgaming.com

Product Description

The sound of this Buffalo, NY band is not jazz, nor is it in-your-face rock. It's simply the pinnacle in sophisticated pop rock. Pianos with Mehldau-like dissonance swell along colliding guitar lines, rounded out with a rhythm section that grooves and sways like it's nobody's business. The Kindo boys have masked innovative genius into a pop façade. RIYL: Dave Brubeck, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Ben Folds, This Day & Age, Brad Mehldau, John Mayer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every Song Great! August 27, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I have never been compelled to write a review before, but then, I have never bought an album that I really liked every song. This is a great compilation of jazz,pop, indie,and rock all in a controlled and melodic way. THis is the kind of music that I think alot of people are looking for. Music that is intelligent,deep, yet highly melodic and accessible. Buy this album so these guys will keep creatingnew stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars TROK - An Absolutely Talented Band! August 21, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I must first say that these guys have brought back a genre that hasn't seen too much light through the clounds ( I hope to see more of it). Indi-Jazz or just the flow of their music is phenominal. I don't mean to be biased but I get so tired of the mainstream flow of music that fills the radio stations nowadays. This band I'm sure has been through hell and back to bring us this melodic sound and I hope they get recognized for it! The lyrics really standout, and anything with a piano in it is A++ for me. I'm not to good at going into details about specific songs, but I was first introduced to them through TDAA, then their EP (btw.....excellent, check it out!). As the guy below me said....Listen to the song Rhythm, Cord and Melody and let TROK engulf you. A++ for this band, I hope to see more music from them in the future....Please support TROK!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Something You Need To Hear! August 20, 2008
Format:Audio CD
4.5 stars.

The Reign Of Kindo creates music that falls somewhere between pop, jazz, and indie... Something intriguing and unique. TROK sounds just that way, and what great musicians they are!

"Rhythm, Chord & Melody" is a trip!

At first, after hearing the contrast of the songs from their 2007 debut EP, this album sounded less varied, but after listening to the songs a few times they become distinct.

Complex structures abound within TROK's memorable and jazzy songs. Yet still the songs are accessible and melodic. The one thing I feel this album might be missing is the really upbeat songs like "Just Wait" and "Hard To Believe" from their 2007 debut EP. Not to say there aren't upbeat songs! It's just that somehow, to me at least, none of the songs on here feel the same as the ones on the EP, which is okay. These songs amazing, but in a different way.

Rhythm, Chord & Melody is a really great album that I know will grow on me and soon attain five-star status. If you've been thinking about buying this, go for it. I don't believe you'll regret it. There's so much here to chew on... Every time I listen I hear something I didn't notice before. Great music.

...Also if you have a chance to see them live and you like their music, go see them. I feel that they are just as good live as they are on the recorded albums. Not enough bands stand up to the live show these days... TROK does. :)

The Moments In Between,
Great Blue Sea,
Till We Make Our Ascent,
I Hear That Music Play,

4.0 out of 5 stars A fresh listening experience May 9, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album has influences taken from jazz, classic progressive rock, and indie rock. The piano and drums are usually busy sounding, but not distracting or overpowering. They only enhance the beauty of each track. The dynamics on this album are clear and it sounds like each instrument has breathing space. The vocalist tends to sing either slowly or at a moderate pace, while the music tends to be a bit faster. This offset makes for a very interesting listen. I'm not sure what scale the vocalist sings with, bit it doesn't sound like a typical major or minor one. I think he may be singing in a type of jazz scale but I'm not exactly sure. Whatever scale it is, it's interesting because the vocal melodies take a lot of unexpected turns. For clarity's sake, this is not a straight-up jazz album. It has some jazz elements, but it has a great blend of the above mentioned styles. I would label it as progressive indie jazz rock. It's a very fun and interesting listen because of all the intricacies in each track.

SHORT VERSION: I recommend this album to anyone who enjoys the technical details of music. Anyone who loves creative music with a fun, energetic and emotional feel to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressed... December 29, 2009
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I was a big fan of This Day and Age, and had worried that I wouldn't like the style as much when the jazz elements became more pronounced. I couldn't be more wrong. I'm not sure that I like this album better, but it sure does give the old stuff a run for it's money. Rarely does an album expand my musical horizons with such ease, hooking me with each track.

If forced to pick a favorite track, I'd go with "Till We Make Our Ascent", but this is a very solid effort start to finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Addicting..... August 24, 2008
By Melissa
Format:MP3 Music
Bought this album along with their EP immediately after seeing a live show in Buffalo, NY. These talented musicians are amazing live and I left needing to hear more. This album is absolutely beautiful and addicting. My favorites are "The Moments In Between" and "Breathe Again". Do your ears the favor and buy a copy of both of The Reign of Kindo albums.
