Customer Reviews

Refreshingly different progressive rock

District 97 has a truly fantastic album here that caters to hard-core progressive rock/metal fans like myself, but also has some surprisingly mainstream elements to it. All in all this album has been a breath of fresh air after years of listening to the same old stuff from Dream Theater, Symphony X, and the likes. I wasn't sure if I'd like the female lead, but honestly the vocals are superb, with interesting melodies and catchy riffs throughout. The songs as a whole are composed very well, and all the instruments blend wonderfully to produce a sound not unlike something you might actually hear on the radio. However, don't let the "mainstream" aspects fool you, this album has the depth that I look for and love in prog. I've easily listened to the entire album 50 times through and I'm still loving every moment!

Bottom line: highly recommended if you're a prog fan and looking for something new and refreshing. Great work District 97!

Great prog, old and new

This is an extremely talented band, with a great lead singer and a plethora (cornucopia overflowing) of musical ideas. Tight, well paced songs, changes in tempo, changes in structure, all based around Leslie Hunt's wonderful vocals. Strong musicianship that can stop on a dime, surges of power that might almost be metal, and pastoral washes of keyboards whilst Ms. Hunt tells you a story in every song. Yes, these is prog rock, but the music is no throwback to the 1970's, the music here is energetic and creative enough to stand well on its' own. Seriously, I have been listening to prog and rock since the 70's - yeah, I'm an olde guy - and I haven't been this excited about a band in a long, long time! District 97 deserve to be listened to and supported. On this album it does not hurt that John Wetton lends his vocals to the dark tale, The Perfect Young Man. Appropriate for the perfect young band, methinks! Brilliant!!!

Great playing, lackluster writing

I like this band and especially some of the vocal parts which are harmonically tricky, but the writing influences seem limited to neo-prog-metal. They should put away their Rush cds and listen to some Stravinsky, Holst, Bartok, whatever. And cut out all that chugga-chugga guitar it's so dated.
