Album Notes
San Francisco Bay Area-based Metaphor creates epic progressive rock and this, their 3rd CD, continues their pedigreed musical tradition. "The Sparrow" is marked by constant creativity, interesting and changing moods, alternating time signatures, quality musicianship, and a commitment to creating music of their own unique design.

Based on the best selling novel of the same name by Mary Doria Russel, "The Sparrow" tells the story of the first human mission to another inhabited planet - one which we became aware of after receiving deep-space signals that turned out to be otherworldy music. Drawn to this alien civilization, a Jesuit-funded mission is launched and successfully lands on the other planet. There, the story continues with unusual twists and turns, tragedy, beauty, crisis, and revelation...
