The Allegory of Light, by Syzygy (2003): This is one of those discs I got a couple of weeks ago to get ready for this year's version of 3RP. This is the only release by this American band (there's an Australian band by the same name), which is second on the lineup for Sunday. After a couple weeks listening, this album has moved up from "meh" to "pretty damn good" status in my book. It's mostly instrumental, with lots of nice guitar and synth breaks scattered throughout. It's a little rough around the edges (particularly when vocals are involved), but there's a lot of good going on. Look forward to seeing them play live.
