Music Street Journal Review: Cure For Gravity “Cure For Gravity”

28 Nov

Those looking for traditional prog rock will not find it here. Instead, this lands more in the atmospheric direction of groups like Porcupine Tree and RPWL mixed with a guitar based sound that’s perhaps closer to Tool. No matter how you label the sound, though, this music is compelling and the disc is very strong. There isn’t a huge amount of range from track to track, but this is an EP so that never weighs heavily on it.

Track by Track Review

Tonight
Atmospheric keyboard sounds lead this off. Guitar comes in after a bit, and the piece feels ready to explode. It eventually moves outward to a cool textural modern prog sound for the entrance of the vocals. This is a bit like Pink Floyd, but also tied to things like RPWL, Porcupine Tree and more.

Sunspots
This rocks out just a bit more than the previous cut did. It’s packed with some cool prog elements. I love the vocal arrangement. The thing is, I like just about everything about this song. It has similar elements to the opener, but I’d say there are also some hints of modern Rush here. There is some really hard edged jamming built into this thing.

Just Like Candy
This is very much more of the same. That said, it’s still a unique cut. I love the vocals on this thing. There is some meaty guitar work here, too. The fast paced rocking jam later in the track is one of the coolest musical passages of the whole disc. I love it.

Blackmetal
I love the balance between harder rocking and mellower music here. This is an energized tune that works really well.

Push
This one is a bit more of a modern alternative rocker than atmospheric prog tune. It’s a strong cut however you label it, though.

Killing for the Queen
There is some particularly effective guitar work on this. I also love the soaring vocals.
