Album of the Day

Curtains, by Crucible (2001): Crucible is a Connecticut-based prog band that peddles a fairly mainstream brand of symphonic / neo-prog. The traditional 5-piece lineup (guitar, keys, bass, drums, vocals), lots of 70s sounding keyboards, and slick time changes are all in place. Having said that, the actual music on Curtains is pretty good, if you're into that kind of thing. The keyboard bits, in particular, have a Trick of the Tail-era Genesis vibe to them in spots. Nothing earth shattering, but definitely something for neo/symph fans to check out.
