Bryan Scary & The Shredding Tears - The Zero Light/Imitation Of The Sky

"Look to the heavens on a cloudy night"

I love it when readers introduce me to knew bands, and this is one such occurrence. I doubt whether I would have discovered Bryan Scary if somebody didn't bring it to me, even though the band's prog-pop fits with a bunch of artists that I really do adore (Sparks jumps immediately to mind, as well as Queen and ELO). They've got a new concept album (pretty much a rock opera) called Flight Of The Knife, and it was very difficult to pick just one track to share because it's one of those records where everything flows together so perfectly that it's hard to separate the tracks. I went with one of the more straightforward tracks, the beautiful melodic Zero Light. If the melody to this doesn't get you, I don't know what would. I would also recommend The Purple Rocket and Imitation Of The Sky if you're looking for something a bit more uptempo. The latter is what The Feeling might create if they were feeling a bit more daring. Hell, I'll just go ahead and post two!

Glad you enjoyed this album. I think this album has impressed me the most this year. And that was only a couple weeks after I told someone that I didn't think there'd be a better album than the Feeling's new one this year.

Speaking of Sparks, have you heard any of their new songs yet? "Good Mourning" and "Lighten Up, Morrissey" are both available in various places to be listened to. Can't wait for their new album this year. If these two tracks are any indication, it should be excellent.

Thanks again. I'm loving the album more and more each time I listen to it. I wish they'd make a movie out of it someime. The lyrics are so colorful.

Oh, and about Sparks. I've heard Good Morning, but I'll wait until the album's out to listen to more. I own every single Sparks record, so I'm sure I'll love this one too!
