Tangent. The - The World That We Drive Through (2004)

The second album from this international band lead by Andy Tillison. 

The band was a supergroup at their two first albums. In addition to Andy, we also got Roine Stolt, Guy Manning, Jonas Reingold and Theo Travis. All of them super artists in their own right. If I am not much mistaken, this is the final album with this constellation. 

Andy Tillison is still very much in charge here on the keyboards and on vocals. The music is the typical mix of Canterbury prog and symphonic prog. Their sound is very distinctive and easy to detect. 

The music is more introvert than I am used to from The Tangent. There are a couple of dubious songs too. There are also some very good songs. This is an album with highs and lows. 

The end result is a good album and one you should check out.
