Today, I went into Lines In The Sky music video library and finished watching Taciturnity after listening to the entire Insight EP on Spotify, and now feel like this can be one of the best progressive rock albums of 2022. Simply a world-class job by these gentlemen from Nashville, I had a great time listening to this record.
First and foremost, the album has enough quality, vision, and talent to convince its listeners, even though I had my doubts since the moment I heard the album sound. The work stands out with its impressive blend of modern and vintage rock vibes both musically and technically above everything else. The musical part reminded me of Rush, early Dream Theater, and Pink Floyd in certain parts, I felt like listening to their greatest times. It is complex and super progressive in every possible way, every detail has a crucial role, and these ideas were also supported by the producer.
Technically, it feels like everything sits on a grungy, vintage, and modern stoner/math-rock sound, which doesn’t always follow the dynamic character of the musical side. The collective and their producer have touched almost every single detail in the making, so the album stands out with its success in the toning, balancing, and energy level.
Additionally, the musical part of the job has established itself on vintage progressive and modern melodic math-rock influences, but these have never been a limitation in their understanding. The music called them to sound like pop or modern metalcore, they followed. So the songs don’t really belong to a certain mood too heavily, rather being dynamic in the first place. From my perspective, they show huge potential with their advanced musicianships with the necessary intelligence and gift for composing progressive music.
