Color of Space

1 rating: 5.0
An album by Singularity

Singularity's debut CD has definite leanings towards 80's Rush with interesting song structures, growling bass work, and excellent lead vocal melodies. A must-buy for fans of Moving Pictures, Signals, and Power Windows.

one must consider oneself lucky when you find such an obscure album that winds up being so delightful and charming that you lament the fact that few people will ever hear it. Singularity's debut, _Color of Space_, is a cd like that. It draws healthily from its progrock influences and siphons them through a creative filter that creates a unique album that captures both the usual prog trappings with really great, catchy songs. Lots of tripped-out time sigs, crispy grooves, laser-beam synths, and geeky vocals all seem to conspire in a way that creates a perfect, coherent whole out of disparate influences, like Rush, Genesis, with a touch of Marillion, and maybe even TMBG. "Ripple in Time" kicks things off with clean grooves, simple and direct melodic lines with an indomitably catchy chorus, and proggy twists and turns. "Mars Direct" is a Rush-like instrumental. "Who We Are" is a beautiful prog-ballad with sorrowful keys, and the more somber, flat vocals at the beginning and end (with moving lyrical turn at the end) is a powerful touch. "Strange Attaction" is a weird song about, um, biological impulses? It's funky. "Lenses" is a fantastic 16-minute epic to close the album, moving through its multifaceted parts with total coherence and a propulsive finale. "Ebb and Flow" is awesome with a beautiful solo piano interlude. The music is really groovy, light (not `lite') and addicting. the music is so well-crafted that all the tight, impressive musicality of it (all the prog trickey you can expect) almost becomes unnoticeable. Check it out!
