Last week, I was lucky enough to get a copy of TBer John Turner's CD Fear and Trembling, with his band Lord Only. I have not stopped listening to it since I got it. For fans of progressive rock (and fan's of talented musicians), this is a must have. For me, the progressive rock scene hasn't been that great of late. I enjoy Enchant, a band out of San Francisco, and Spiral Architect. However, Enchant sometimes gets a bit boring for me and Spiral Architect seems more about the technical side of music for me to handle 100% of the time. I am pleased to say Lord Only has all of the talent and skills of Spiral Architect BUT they haven't lost sight of making music that you can literally sing and hum to (I found myself humming "Time Out" the other morning as I was walking from the parking garage at work). Clearly, all of the musicians in Lord Only are talented, but for me, what puts this disc in my player over and over is John's bass. I understand now why he prefers extended range basses (and see what they can do in the hands of someone who knows what he's doing - unlike me). The bass playing is active and integral to each song without ever sounding busy. Plus, John writes all of the songs and lyrics (some, granted, with his band mates). John solely wrote Wounded and Versatile Residue, and these are two of my favorites on the album, along with Time Out and Dispossessed. Anyway, this post is long enough. Go to Lord Only's website and check them out, then buy the album. For those of you with a subscription to Rhapsody, DigMe pointed out last week you can stream the entire album!
