Our interview with Roine Stolt was published today: https://lotsofmuzic.weebly.com/home/an-interview-with-roine-stolt-from-the-sea-within

Lots of information on how the lineup was formed, and a revelation: he invited Jordan Rudess to join, he said yes, and the DT camp complained about it, so he had to pull back.

Well, dang! I listened to "Goodbye" on my speakers pretty loudly. It's a very beautiful song. I didn't like Ashes of Dawn toooo much, but I went back and listened to it again after Goodbye and found myself enjoying it a bit more. Kinda rocked out to it.

I'm looking forward to the release. What a great group of dudes!

Not TSW related, but would love to know about his involvement on the next solo album by Jordan. Is he recording the whole album or just a couple tracks? Also would love to know if thereĺs plans for a 4th Aristocrats album :)
It sounds like, "ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk." Instead of the more pleasing kick drum sound of, "gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk."

Once again my issue is with the very lazy and forgettable vocal melodies/lyrics.  Plus the chorus sounds like a Casting Crowns chorus in odd time.  Not impressed. 
You're on a real rollercoaster in this thread. :lol

I shall be joining the new progressive supergroup The Sea Within, for their debut show at the Night Of The Prog festival Loreley on Saturday 14th July - CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS

My good friends Roine Stolt and Jonas Reingold, asked me a while ago if I would help out, as Jonas is otherwise engaged, so I shall be stepping in to his formidable boots for the evening.
 
It will be great to catch up with Daniel Gildenlow and Casey McPherson and meeting Tom Brislin and Marco Minnemann and I am very much looking forward to playing with these very talented gentleman for the first airing of their stunning debut album.

I hope to see some familiar faces in the audience if you are around."

Forgot to say that I heard the second song, and enjoyed it a lot more than the first one, and even that one's grown on me a bit.

SoA, be quiet, sit and learn: This is a supergroup!

I really can't choose one preferred song, at least half of the album is brilliant. But for now They Know My Name, Broken Cord, Denise and An Eye for an Eye for an Eye are the best ones...

Just gave it a listen. Not what I thought it would be but still high quality stuff. More listens will come with better expectations this time around and hopefully it will grow on me since there were several moments I enjoyed.

To me it sounds like a slightly refreshed TFK record with Daniel's vocals to add (if you like them).

Nothing particularly memorable to me but it's definitely better than any of the individual projects of those players in recent years.
Actually... I maybe like Stolt's album with Anderson better. But that's just me.

Definitely needs a few listens to get into, but now there's a few pretty good tunes. Oddly enough, I feel some of the bonus tracks should be regular tracks (e.g. Denise) and some regular tracks relegated to bonus tracks.

Did you order from a US distributor, like Amazon? If so, I'm pretty certain all US releases were jewel cases, but the EU version is a 3-panel digipak as seen in many promo pics on the official Facebook page, also shared by Stolt himself.

The first two songs released from this didn't do much for me and neither did the samples of each track just now on iTunes.  I was reminded of how much Gildenlow's melodramatic vocals bug me more often than not (which is why I never dug Pain of Salvation).  Someone is gonna have to do a really hard sell to get me to fork over money for this.

I'm with you on that, and there are definitely moments where Gildenl÷w oversells his lines. But, overall I didn't find it too egregious, and then there's of course also Casey singing.

I think Gildenlow has gotten a little less flashy with his vocals and his are my favorites on the album. His are probably the only vocals that I really like on the album.

I've listened to this half a dozen times or so and I stick by my original thought that it's "a refreshed Flower Kings album".

Either that, or Roine's playing is just that invasive that it takes over the whole sound and feel.

I don't dislike it, but it's a lot to get through.

And it definitely sounds like prog to me, not "art rock". lol.

Basically I agree with this, from what I know from TFK, which is only The Rainmaker. TFK with a bit of modern influences, but essentialy a retro prog album. But it is a really good one, for sure! For those who know Marco's solo work, there's a lot of his influence on An Eye for an Eye for an Eye. One thing I must add, although I love Daniel's vocals - here very influenced by PoS's Road Salt phase IMO - I felt it is really magic when Casey sings on the album. What an emotional voice! The Hiding of Truth is simply beautiful and it's because of Casey. :hefdaddy

I agree with the statement above. The songs where Casey sings are better than the ones Daniel does and now I wonder if touring with Casey will make him the only singer in case there is a follow up album.

My bet is that Daniel will suffer of Portnoy syndrome and will have to leave TSW because of scheduling conflicts with POS, leaving Casey as their main singer for later albums.

It strikes me that Roine might crowd other members out.  Overwhelmingly I hear the musical presence of his projects and honestly I'm not into it at all.  The music is always overproduced and exhausting and the lyrics are faux poetic and impenetrable.  I don't think Tom or Daniel got much space here, not even Marco besides that one song which is pretty refreshing and my favorite of the underwhelming lot.

you know prog is fizzling out because a band that is made up and led by dyed in the wool prog guys is trying to rebrand to another genre despite the music being more or less what you'd expect.
