ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
You like what happened in the 70s but bored with copycat bands? This album is music for music's sake and has confounded reviewers every time. Not ever have we had a bad one!
One professional ended his with this ((... The album has so many songs that it has enough to maintain interest even for the most casual listener. There are some masterful tracks on offer, and Corvus Stone blend many genres to form one incredible album. The passion of the musicians as they play together is infectious, and it is a joyous labour of love from beginning to end. I was delighted that the band were able to create such a dynamic sound, that is highly innovative and brimming over with virtuoso skill... ))
So many stunning reviews already and now this album is in the top 100 of all time (Crossover Prog) of progarchves. Take a look there.
Our rules are simple.
We don't try to sound like anyone.
We don't try to NOT sound like anyone
We don't try to be different
We don't try to fit any mould & we will never do what reviewers suggest we do
We enjoy and put a lot of thought into every second of everything we do.

Corvus Stone - Cinema
For all of you are unfamiliar with me.... I am NOT a professional reviewer of music. Just a humble musician and fan. It would also be unfair to the readers here if I didn't point out that I am very fond of this project because of how it came into being.
Disclaimers aside.
If you haven't had the opportunity to read the story of how this "plan came together" ... I strongly recommend that you do. It should be available at Melodic Revolutions Records as well as a number of other associated sites. I cannot stress this point too much as I feel it is almost as important as the music itself.
Being able to complete such a venture while sharing virtually no studio time is amazing. Social media (while being a bane to society at times) has given musicians a true platform to collaborate in a new way. This aspect of Corvus Stone makes me feel that real music is not only still alive... but catching fire.
Musically speaking: If you do not have the time to really listen to an album of this length in one sitting and more than once...you may not 'get it' at all. From the production quality to the raw talent (artwork by Sonia Mota definitely included) and to the sense of humor.... there is nothing to compare this project to. I'm sure we can have a big debate over each song's genre or similarities to other groups; however that is not the point! If you discount a song like jussipussi for example... for being offensive or foolish than that is your choice. I do however hope we can all laugh at ourselves once in awhile. Does anyone remember the Styx album "The Serpent is Rising"? There is a track called "Don't Sit Down On the Plexiglass Toilet" that still makes me laugh so hard I could cry.
Schizophrenic is an interesting way of describing this project; although not likely to be politically correct.
Corvus Stone gives it their all. They do it their way or the highway. The collaboration of such diverse styles and preferences is stunning. Improvisation... sometimes... can just be wonderful. I also believe that it would be unwise to try to put Covus Stone into a cubbie hole labeled "prog" or any other sub-genre thereof. This is not a subject for debate... just my humble opinion.
This release is must listen to material! Not must like. Please take a listen... I strongly suspect that you will be blown away!
Corvus Stone's next release should be even more spectacular with the addition of both drummer Robert Wolff as well as vocalist, lyricist and composer Blake Carpenter who came to this project later than original trio.
Corvus Stone is:
Colin Tench, Petri Lemmy Lindström, Pasi Koivu, Blake Carpenter, and Robert Wolff.

Amazing!
I heard a little of this on aural moon radio and thought I was hearing a blast from the past. I listen to all types of music but my real love is for progressive "rock". The probelm these days is not the lack of new music in that genre, it is the narrow field that each album seems to abide in. Deep Purple were once a shock with mysterious but gripping sounds that few could make sense of. As were the Groundhogs. Remember split? Almost everything was new and great fun. Then it got even better as a huge number of bands were trying everything out that they could get away with. From Yes to Pink Floyd to Jeff Beck. Unfortunately that did not last long and genres appeared and narrowed much of the music into narrow bands. That way, we could all live happily enjoying the parts we liked and could easily avoid anything that was not within our own personal preference. I found it all very boring. I found Corvus Stone on Bandcamp and couldn't believe how that old variation was absolutely present in this album. I am not a reviewer but can tell you that if you like King Crimson, Santana, Gilmour, Keith Emerson, Zappa, Black Widow,(Yes.. check that out!), then you have GOT to hear this! The best album I have heard in a long time. A very long time!
