The Ark

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
While The Ark contained nothing quite as elaborate as "The Progress Suite" that had taken up one whole side of Of Cabbages and Kings, it was another psychedelic mishmash of styles -- Indian one minute, musichall the next -- of a kind so many popular performers had been indulging in at the time in hopes of making the next Sgt.

    The Ark: A Stunningly Beautiful Trip

    Listening to ''The Ark'' was transcendental for me as a teen. Years later, I am still astounded by its beauty. It is Beatlesque, with Brian Wilson flourishes, yet totally composed by Chad Stewart (mostly) and Jeremy Clyde. Strings, sitars, shimmering guitars, and the Sargeant Pepper-inspired sound effects all contribute to a brilliant sonic trip. Chad and Jeremy hinted at this level of virtuosity in their ''Of Cabbages and Kings,'' but ''The Ark'' fully realizes an unparalled psychedellic splendor. If you love the Beatles and Brian Wilson-inspired harmonies, with a good measure of social conscience, you will LOVE ''The Ark!''
