Transitivity of Parallelism
Oregon's most prolific recording and occassional live trio, offer their eighth album of yet more poignant songs, memorable lyrical ideas and musical explorations. Extensive use of spacey string synths has darkened and deepend their guitar orientated pop-rock material, which now features both female and male vocal leads. Far into the Mists is a precise, thoughtful and repeat play kind of number, short, succinct and moody. The band's Moog work embellishes rather than stomps on the material, whilst the ever tasteful and exploratory guitar interplay pushes each song in all sorts of directions. Irresistable hooks and classic rock style riffs make this music somewhat timeless.
