ITMyspace.com - Over and Out 2002
9.4
Neo Prog Album Oriented Rock
Unashamedly drawing on (arguably) the peak years of Pink Floyd's creativity (DSOTM, Wish You Were Here and Animals), Over and Out will take you back to a time when albums were painstakingly crafted and from the opening 'Time' like intro to 'Tuning In' all Floyd fans will be transported back to the Hypgnosis era with the clever use of samples and that grand but laid back production typical of DSOTM. The Canadian origins of the band give the album some distinct personality and wouldn't be out of place as a soundtrack to a Michael Moore film. IT's trademark scathing of modern culture is omnipresent. "Ground control again to Major Tom. This planet's getting lonely. Now don't come down here, stay there if you can. We haven't got a plan and no-one wants to help me" - 'Leaving the Planet'
'Leaving the Planet', 'Space Cadet Parts 1 & 2' and Stranded is a gorgeous sequence of tracks that had me yearning for my gatefold vinyl cover so that i could psychologically become more immersed in the album.
A masterpiece of contemporary progressive rock.

Prog Album Oriented Rock
Their gritty and satirical themes don't leave any room for myths or fantasy. In Burn (part 2) they have managed to cut and paste a Bush speech with hilarious (but tellingly accurate) results.

The Lyrics are intelligent, challenging and occasionally darkly humorous. The bottom line is that the IT experience will inform your thinking, feelings and memory long after the last notes have ended. Did i mention the music? Ahem well, as a prog rock fan i've been waiting for something like this to come along for ages. There are singles on here that should be getting decent airplay - God Is Dead and the 1st single Killing Me are two examples of how to make a commercially viable 4 minute song while at the same time not departing (no pun intended) from the feel and flow of the album. ... -> show full review
