Since this album was out on the prog market for over a month now I've had time to spin it many times. Without hesitation I consider it a great debut prog album. This collection of tracks delivers high quality, imaginative composition, and excellent musicianship. I find it reminiscent of Genesis, King Crimson and others, which is great....however, I was pleasantly surprised with both the modern and vintage mix of instruments. These guys have their own style. Each song seems to reward with something unique and compelling.....haunting and passionate lyrics..........Tarnecky's voice so reminiscent of Peter Gabriel, but not just like him either. An unusual voice I love. The material throughout is certainly complex enough, but still quite accessible. Many of the tracks have dramatic moments. The overall sound is somewhat atmospheric. As with any good prog, this album just keeps getting better. After the initial break-in period I realized just how good the melodies and counter-melodies are. This is well thought out material! For example, the first track, "You Can Never Know" is a great way to start off, as it contains everything from wonderful rhythm guitar work, inspired vocals, to beautiful keyboard counter-melodies. The landscape of this song is so varied and ends with a great emotional lead guitar section. The lyrics to "Mankind" are poignant and the arrangement of this song, including the female back-up vocals closer to the end, is top notch - another song with wonderful themes. "Sheep", another favorite opens with pipe organ - classical and cinematic, and has a hard middle section almost approaching metal and then backs down beautifully before the end. I will mention "Liberate Me" too...the last song, and an instrumental along with two others on the album. Just a very fun and hook laden up-tempo number. Love it - and so many others I didn't bring up (the song "She" is an epic!). I don't consider anything on this CD weak. I guess what gets me most about this album is the great compositions and delivery. TCP should be commended for such a strong debut. As I keep spinning this...it just keeps engaging me, bursting with character. Overall, a well balanced effort....between soft and hard, between quirky and melodic.....a journey I HIGHLY recommend....to any prog fan.

This is a very good debut album. There are plenty of variations in the songs making them very interesting once you get to know what's going on. Not the most (or least) accessible album, but it is instantly likable. After a few plays you are right in there deep in some great prog. Reminds me a bit of Genesis at times, both musically and with vocals very reminiscent of Gabriel but TCP has it's very own sound. Lots of wonderful mellotron and guitar work too. Completely enjoyable US prog album. Truly an adventure I recommend.
