Editorial Reviews

In many ways, Sorry No Ferrari's first full length record Ternary plays out like an old Yes record might if it were released today. The band plays quick, intricate music that vacillates between time signatures and changes on a dime. Where their first EPs, Oh, Snap! and The Get Down Syndrome, featured a mostly math rock sound, Ternary enters into prog rock territory by focusing equally on melody, rhythm, and theme. For Ternary, the theme is artificial intelligence. Opening the album is a three part, 17-minute suite that sets the stage for a story of technological singularity. Essentially, in such a scenario, intelligent devices become more intelligent than their human creators, and therefore become dominant. This theme is already pretty ambitious, but what makes it even more of an undertaking is that Sorry No Ferrari is an instrumental band. So, everything they do to tell their story must be done through sound. Throughout the 40 minutes it takes to get from beginning to end, Ternary reveals itself as a cohesive and linear unit, which perfectly captures this story and the music of this band. - Sean Zearfoss / Performer Magazine Recorded by Bruce Butkovich at Open Sky Studios in Atlanta Mastered by Carl Saff

"Ternary" marks the first full length album release by the six-year old, Atlanta-based Sorry No Ferrari. This five-piece instrumental rock band takes advantage of having no vocalist, demonstrating their playing abilities with aplomb. After a quick listen, it's clear that each cog of this band is proficient in his choice of instrument.

"Ternary" is a seven-song album that sounds like a cross between Joe Satriani's instrumental rock and Muse's recent stadium rock melodies and arrangements (minus the singer, of course). The songs are upbeat with a driving drum that keeps the music moving forward. Within each song, various tempo changes and breaks create points of tension and release that give the songs a sustained life span.

The band uses an assortment of electric and acoustic guitars to fill in and around the drums, including an electric bass and synthesized sounds. On the song "Setun," a violin and cello are effectively used, embalming the track with a somber tone. There is a good deal of guitar shredding throughout the album, but it never becomes a bragging fest, nor too abstract; rather, it balances technical proficiency with melodic guitar writing and playing.

The mood within each song varies between energetic, ominous, and solemn, and as a result the music has a pleasant balance. In particular, "Talos Part II" features a distinct, dark riff at its end which finishes off the album on a grand note.
