Geof Whitely Project   "Disambiguation"

 

Disambiguation?  Disambiguation narrows down the meaning of words and it's a good thing, according to a well-known dictionary.  Well I can say with certainty that the forthcoming album from Geof Whitely Project is most definitely a good thing.

 

A richer, denser, dare I say more ‘epic’ sound greets the listener from the off.  So I was surprised when Arny asked me not to feature tracks on Soundscapes just yet as ‘it would sound better’ when he’d tweaked it’  Well if that is the case I  really can’t wait for the ‘tweaked’ version.

 

All of the usual ingredients are here, once again blended into a tantalising and delicious feast of progressively influenced rock.  “Creation of Imagination” opens with a wonderful epic moody orchestrated keyboard but quickly opens out into a foot tapper with the dreaded GWP ‘earworm’ lurking.

 

If we could only see”, could be a single, nicely commercial with a twist.  “Phantasm” has wonderful menace within, but light is provided by the keyboards, bringing everything together is some superb guitar, not over flashy (as always), but just enough to grab the attention and focus the ear.

 

Light My Way” has something very different about it, a mystical opening draws the listener in  The melody and mood grows gracefully, a wonderful peaceful track, even when the drum kicks in and the song starts in earnest.  There is a nice subtle change of tempo in this track that works wonderfully well and should keep the most proggy of prog fans happy!

 

Magnificence” has Mr Stephen Hawkins talking to us quietly, while the music builds and sets another wonderful mood. This is a beautiful track.  Meandering like a calming cosmic stream, simply marvellous.

 

Wounded Spirit” is again a wonderfully constructed gentle piece, intricate but accessible.

 

My favourite track has to be “End of Days”, dramatic but poignant, splendidly moody but not dark.  There are many elements to this album, but it does feel as if all of the things that I have admired in GWP music have all been pulled together and added to on this album.  The ‘cherry’ on the icing on the cake maybe?

 

Disambiguation may mean the narrowing of the meaning of words, but this album should surely broaden the appeal of GWP to real music fans.   It is another ‘step forward’, that sounds naff but I do feel the music continues to develop, but isn’t that the ‘essence’ of progressive rock?  No there is a word we could do with apply some disambiguation to!

 

In short this is just another simply marvellous album from Geof Whitely Project.
