Album of the Day

Blood of the Berry, by Timothy Pure (1997): "Lush" is the word that comes to mind when I think of this band's proper debut album (someone at Progressive Ears referred to The Fabric of Betrayal as basically a collection of demos, which makes sense). Thick keyboard backgrounds and lots of vocal harmonies set the tone. It reminds me, in some ways, of a mix between a moodier Moody Blues and the more expansive bits of Pink Floyd. It's a concept album, though it's not critical to get too involved in what it's supposed to be about (I've never figured it out). Definitely one of those albums that flies under the radar for a few listens before it grabs you and drags you into its depths.
