Tristan Park — At the End of the Day
(TP/Antrim CD1, 1993, CD)

by Dan Casey, Published 1995-11-01

At the End of the Day Cover art

Hailing from the New England area, this six piece band is pushing for the arena rock sound that the late 70s and early 80s bands like Kansas and Rush made famous. Not exactly neo-prog, not exactly pop, not exactly prog-metal, but a little bit of each of those. It's really the guitar performances that carry this album, but when you gaze at the liner notes it's impossible to tell who's playing what. There are two guitarists in the band (along with two keyboardists) and three other guitarists who guest on various tracks. The songs are a combination of material written over the last five years, and pooled together from the band's catalog for this recording. The writing is full of life and motion, made up of mostly bright up-tempo major keys, and there is also a staple bubble-gum ballad. Needless to say, this is very radio-friendly music and Tristan Park seem to have all the potential to succeed in that genre. With a bit more experience (mostly in the vocal department) and a few lucky breaks, they could eventually make a name for themselves.
