Album of Yesterday

Business travel wreaked havoc on the Ranch this week, so, a little late, here's the Album of the Day entry for yesterday:

finneus gauge: more once more. After the 90s breakup of echolyn, keyboardist Chris Buzby got together with his drummer brother to form finneus gauge. The band produced two albums full of intense fusion-tinged prog. Think maybe U.K. or Bruford, but a little edgier. more once more was the first, and was the best album to come out in 1997 (barely edging Mike Keneally's Sluggo!, in my estimation). The echolyn-style close vocal harmonies are present here, including an excellent female lead vocalist.
