Chaos in the Landing Zones
*NOW recieving airplay at ProgRockRadio.com After nearly 2 1/2 years since releasing Echoes of Oblivion, Mark returns with a new album that is a throw back to the 'concept' or 'theme' albums of long ago. In the vein of Pink Floyd, King Crimson etc. One recent listener called it a 'Dark Side of The Moon for the new millenium'. Due to fan request's, this album is in rotation at Prog Rock Radio (progrockradio.com) Complete with refreshing use of the 'ancient' synthesizer sounds of moogs, arps & mellotrons contrasted against acoustic guitars. Chaos in the Landing Zones takes off quick and never looks back. The thread is continuous and keeps you curiously wanting to process the spiritual, social and human implications of mankind's modus operandi in a modern world gone seemingly haywire but not without hope and redemption for those who seek an alternate path. With a few obvious tributes such as 'Crafty Strands' for under-rated prog giants Happy The Man. Sunhillow en Rotation is a tribute honoring Yes vocalist Jon Anderson's 'Olias of Sunhillow'. The multi-layered synthesizer extravaganza 'A Treatise on White Magic' definately finds Todd Rundgren as a source of inspiration. Anyone that grew up in the 70's that was a fan of progressive rock can't go wrong in scoring this CD. Anyone that appreciates the psycho-acoustic experience of Pink Floyd through headphones will not be disappointed in approaching this work in the same way. Check the samples & decide for yourself.
