GIBRALTAR PROGRESSIVE ROCK ENCLYCLOPIDIA

If you liked Yes in those old days...
Here's a band that sounds more like Yes than Yes itself. These guys have focused in on CttE and ToTO period Yes, studied every composition, styling, nuance, and generally have assumed
the character of that band, and in fact have done it quite faithfully, with the only notable exception being Squire's bass stylings. To my
ears, vocalist/guitarist Darrel Studna sounds *exactly* like Jon Anderson, and keyboardist Steve Vail sounds enough like Wakeman to fool all but the most discriminating listeners. If you liked Yes in those old days and wish they still
sounded that way, wish no more ... pick this album up and imagine it's 1973 again.

GIBRALTAR PROGRESSIVE ROCK ENCLYCLOPIDIA

this is sure to please followers of Yes
Realm is released on Syn-Phonic, is very much Yes influenced, and, as with all Syn-phonic releases, full of instrumental virtuosity. Vocal duties are
carried out by Darrell Studna who has learnt his lessons well at the altar of Guru Jon Anderson, and, interestingly enough, two of the three
members of the band acknowledge Rick Wakeman with Special Thanks! Unlike most Syn-phonic releases, this is all new music, recorded in 1992,
though prominent use of Moog and Moog Bass by keyboardist Steve Vail help turn back the clock. In conclusion, this is sure to please followers of Yes , who may not have quite adjusted yet to 90125.

YES
Wait a minute! Do my ears deceive me or is this a long lost Yes release? No, it is the debut release
by the mid-western group Realm and could easily be the best Yes release they never recorded. Hailing
from Kansas City, Missouri Realm is Steve Vail (keyboards and synths),
Lake Furney (drums and percussion), and Darrell Studan (guitars and
vocals). Studan's voice is a dead ringer for Jon Anderson and Vail has
his Rick Wakeman chops down pat. In fact, both Studan and Vail extend a
special thank you to Rick Wakeman for his help with this album. Most of
The Path is a tribute to God and nature. Off by itself is "Little
Bottle," a protest song about Tianamen Square. The high point of the CD
is the title track, an upbeat song about death and the afterlife making
use of unusual timbres. The beautiful artwork (akin to the psychedelic
guru contemplation art of the late 60s), full color picture disk, and
the CD booklet with nature photographs, lyrics, and band photos makes
for an artistic and pleasurable package.
