TCP - The Way (2009)

The debut album from this US band. 

The band is a trio and the lineup is drums, bass, guitars, keyboards and vocals.

The band had some help of some guest musicians who provided bass, drums, guitars, mellotron and vocals.

This band has been kicking around for some years and I have been aware of them since this, their debut album. But I have not had the time to check out their three albums....... before now. Reviews of their two other albums to follow suit this winter.

The first I come to think of is the Genesis tribute band The Watch. This due to the sound and vocals. Off course, that leads to pointing out that Genesis and Peter Gabriel is indeed some big references here. Although with a modern sound.

You can also add Machiavel, Kayak and a bit of Dream Theater to the proceedings too. Gentle Giant too. 

This album is seventy-five minutes long and it is a bit of a mouthful. 

The music is both melodic and eclectic at the same time. The vocals is very good and the trio really knows their trade.

This is indeed a good album which should appeal to everyone.
