Never having heard of Andy Tillison, my chief reason for buying The Music That Died Alone was the involvement of Roine Stolt in the project. I figured that with him involved, the CD would have to be at least good. Well, its better than that. Its a neo-prog masterpiece that's not to be missed.
Long-time prog fans will be astounded at how many places this takes you and how many memories are jarred when they listen to this project. The Tangent doesn't copy anyone, but as this plays the multitude of old master influences will become readily apparent. You'll feel at times like you are hearing Yes or ELP or Van de Graaf Generator or maybe even King Crimson!
Listeners will be dazzled by the virtuosity of Tillison on keyboards and by the play of Stolt, who may just be the best prog guitarist in the business today. As for vocals, Stolt is by far the superior vocalist.
I like the entire CD. At 48 minutes, its a little short but The Tangent will give you every penny's worth of value. My favorites are a couple sequences from In Darkest Dreams, Cantermemorabilia, Up-hill From Here, and some of the interior sequences of the title cut. I have most recordings that Stolt has been involved in, now I will have to seek out some of Tillison's other work.
This CD is not for everyone, of course. If you are a fan of over-produced corporate rock, then you will want to avoid it. But if you are a dedicated connoisseur of the finest that prog rock has to offer, then ownership of The Music That Died Alone is mandatory.

I'm a 40 something old school prog rock fan that hasn't been too impressed with the little I have heard of the neo prog movement but this CD gives me hope. I was knocked out buy the playing and melodic song structure reminiscent of old King Crimson and Yes. The singer sounds like a cross between Al Stewart and Gordon Haskell from KC.

However this is not some tired retread, the music is fresh and interesting. If your a fan of old prog rock like me

(and I'm hard to please) this CD is well worth the time.

This album, its just great. From start to finish I enjoyed it.
It starts off with "Darkest Dreams" which is about half an hour long and has some great moments especially at the start of the CD. It then moves on to the "Canturbury Sequence", Canturbury is a style I had never listened to before, its a fusion of Jazz and Progressive Rock and its just brilliant how Roine and the rest of the crew pull it off. Then comes the 7 Minute single song, "Uphill From Here" With 2 different guitarists it makes this piece orignal and astoundingly enjoyable, the most fun track on this album! Then it finishes off nicely with the "Music That Died Alone".
Personally I hope this music never dies! Its great! If you like Flower Kings, Roine Stolt or are a fan of Progressive Rock in general, don't wait! Go for it today!

A rule of thumb I use to decide whether a CD is truly great, or merely very good, is how I feel when the CD ends. Do I right away put another CD on, or do I hit the "Repeat All" button on my CD player, listening to said CD several more times. Well, "The Music That Died Alone" definitely fits the latter category. I listened to it for 3 or 4 straight days (at work and in the car), an it just kept sounding better and better.
This CD, yet another of a huge collection of progressive "side projects", is, in a word, unbelievably great.
From the opening Keith Emerson-like organ riffs of "In Darkest Dreams"; to the Canterbury-inspired "The Canterbury Sequence" which has some lovely piano and flute work; to the flat-out rocking guitar solos of "Up-Hill From Here"; to the more somber tone of "The Music That Died Alone"; this CD is a stroll down the path of progressive music history.
Roine Stolt and Andy Tillison share vocals on "..Dreams", and Tillison handles all the vocals thereafter. Tillison was an unknown quality to me prior to this CD, but I am inspired to check out his work with his band Parallel or 90 Degrees. Roine Stolt, of course, has turned out reams of top-notch progressive music w/ The Flower Kings, as well as Transatlantic and Kaipa.(One bit of advice, if Stolt is involved with a CD, but it without waiting for reviews. Everything this guy touches turns to gold).
Tangent also includes a couple other members of Flower Kings, as well as a couple members of Tillison's band. David Jackson, of Van Der Graaf Generator fame handles woodwinds.
I'd say this CD is on the level of the two Transatlantic CDs, the Flower Kings' stuff, Dream Theater's "Scenes From A Memory". Uuuhh...yeah, it's that good.
It's a crime this type of music doesn't get airplay (at least it doesn't here in Kansas).
I've heard these guys are starting a 2nd CD soon. Can't wait.

I received this album as a birthday gift; and I was a little skeptical at first - I had heard of Roine Stolt and had seen The Tangent on the shelves, but had hesitated before venturing into foreign ground. After it was given as a gift, I had to take a look; and that look was what got me hooked to this album.

Let's start with the music. It may seem as if this album consists of tracks, but it contains so much that it almost feels like one complete journey; like a movie, or a well-written book. The album kicks off with an upbeat feeling with "In Darkest Dreams"; in contrast to the name, it carries on cheerfully until it slows down and introduces melancholia to the context, and, as if giving off a message, it ends with the same upbeat tone. "The Canterbury Sequence" starts softer, however, it rises to an incredible crescendo as it flows into "Up Hill From Here". And finally, the masterpiece that encompasses the album itself; "The Music that Died Alone" which, while closing the album, reminds one how one got to that point.

Aside from this emotional rollercoaster "The Music that Died Alone" is, technically, it is still excellent. The drumming is dynamic and soulful, and with other instruments, it carries a jazz and rock influence throughout. The guitars, whether soft, electric or bass are an excellent front line for the entire show. The keyboards are simply excellent; they are given a few, very impressive, solos and they can function as either the main instrument or the backdrop. To top it all off, saxophones and flutes are added as some extra sauce onto this musical feast. It is simply chocolate blackout for the ears. The melodies are both complex and enjoyable; and they are catchy too!

As for the lyrics and the artwork, they both excel quite easily.
