Head, by Thieves' Kitchen (2000): Last year, Thieves' Kitchen made a splash with The Water Road, an album a couple of lineup changes and several stylistic jumps away from this, their debut. Head is a pretty standard up tempo symphonic prog album, although a little busier than most. Honestly, large hunks of it are forgettable, if pleasant enough going through. But the two epics that booked the disc, "Mute" and "T.A.N.U.S.", are worth a listen. Certainly a change from the more laid back pastoral style they favor these days.
