Travel II knocked me off my feet from the start. Hills Of Indigo Blue begins with a driving drum beat and bass groove, and it sets the tone for what's in store. The album is full of touches I would never have expected from Future of Forestry - a drum solo, driving guitar lines, and anthemic "whoa oh"s. And they're pulled off well. The album also has some of the characteristic FoF touches - shifting dynamics, bells ringing, layering, and delicate guitar work. Lead singer Eric Owyoung delivers his falsetto well, without relying on it too heavily, as he sings encouraging, thoughtful lyrics surrounding memories, journeys, fear, and longing.
Travel II is thoughtful, creative, and, importantly, enjoyable. The album booklet mentions featured instruments including a homemade sitar, theremin, Hammond organ, kitchen drawer, and pipe organ. All these sounds are integrated creatively yet skillfully, and it never feels like randomness just for the sake of randomness. Future of Forestry show some of the finest musicianship out there - get this album, without a doubt.
I like the message and it really makes your foot tap as they have great percussion in this particular CD. Its "atmospheric" sound fills your head with list-full pure images of sailing the never ending high seas!
The CD's first song sets the tone and really sets you on your voyage into a stream of mystical messages that seem cryptic when you read the j-flap but make perfect sense with the music, as well it should, of course. After the first song sets you up...get ready for more.
Of course, they are a Christian band and you can hear those influences, as well. The message is there...you have to feel it. That said, you don't have to even know they are a Christian group to know they mean what they say and say what they mean on a philosophical level.
Their music is thematic and true to the message...and it's also just great fun to listen to...makes you proud to be a Christian.

Part of the three disc set (oddly enough, named Travel I, II, and III), Future of Forestry presents a musically varied, thoughtful set of songs here. Read morePublished on February 14, 2012 by Jeremy
This may not be as good as the first EP album by the name of Travel, but I still have really enjoyed the sound from this Christian group. Glad for them!Published on September 21, 2010 by Trevor W.
