Some parts are very Drama-ish, and that's understandable considering where the Fly From Here suite first started, the players and and the producer of the album, but to me that's very good because Drama is an excellent (and under-appreciated) album.
I know many people dislike the fact they changed their lead singer, and I can understand that (I will not debate this here), but I'm more of an open-mind type. So that's why I overcame my hesitation and went forward with this one.

It's a track-by-track cover of the classic Pink Floyd album. My opinion of recorded (studio) covers tends to be "don't bother unless you've got a new twist to put on the original," and Fahl succeeds. It's quirky, and at times darker/creepier than the Floyd version. Fahl's powerful voice is (as expected) the centerpiece; some parts which were played on guitar or keyboards on the original are even replaced with wordless vocals.

A lot of people don't care for Relayer either, and I would put that up there among my favorites.

It's a gloomy day here and I've been going back to music from my high school years. Yes, they were the disco years. My high school marching band played Do The Hustle at every parade.
