Many of us look for a mind-bending experience when we listen to Progressive Rock. Satisfaction is guaranteed after our mind has been bent, stretched, blown and what not! It gives us that wonderful high which we desperately seek from music. Los Angeles based prog-rock act Spock’s Beard’s latest album ‘The Oblivion Particle’ gives you that high, and it is such a pleasure. ‘The Oblivion Particle’ is nothing short of being avant-garde. There’s a little bit of everything in this album, like progressive elements, funk, jazz and sheer melody and harmony. It is an indulgence to the ears. What is incredibly outstanding from the brilliant instrumentation is the magic on the bass guitar. It isn’t merely hanging around for a rhythm section, but taking a lead role in creating textures in the album, complimenting and supplementing everything. The brilliant production has done justice to the universe of enthralment and allure this wonderful band offers in its music for this album.
