The Art of All — Morgan
(Wonderdrug Records no#, 2006, CD)
by Henry Schneider, Published 2008-01-01The Art of All is a young band (Peter Aliferis drums and keyboards, Ruben Ruiz vocals and guitar, and Chris Debari bass) based in Massachusetts who characterize themselves as a progressive trance grunge band. They play quiet atmospheric music similar to God Speed You Black Emperor, but with vocals. This is pleasant and relaxing background music and each song appears to be a variation on the same theme. So if you view this CD as one long track with eight parts it makes more sense than a collection of eight separate songs. Morgan is a decent debut effort, but could benefit with a bit more diversity in sound and compositional style.
