Canada's The Rebel Wheel make all the right prog noises! On this, their sophomore effort, the band have revamped personnel leaving only the original guitarist David Campbell and sax/keyboardist/vocalist Angie MacIvor to carry on. They didn't miss a beat , so to speak, and enlisted a new rhythm section as well as help from a few guests, most notably Guy LeBlanc (Nathan Mahl, Camel) on synth solo on one track. The most remarkable thing about the new album is that it continues on the same sonic path as their debut CD "Diagramma" but with only one guitarist and with a considerably different feel given the personnel changes. Angie seems to play a somewhat larger role at least on sax and vocals (it is hard to tell about her role in the keyboards on the first album since all five members, including the drummer, are credited with keys). The King Crimson influence is still the most prominent but they are moving towards a more diverse palate incorporating some almost fusion-like moments. There is also a long prog suite called "The Discovery of Witchcraft" which clocks in at over 30 mins and varies in sound from whisper-like acoustic moments to grand sympho-prog at the other end of the spectrum. One of our fave prog release so far this year! Highly recommended!!
