The Source: All Along This Land

Members of the Los Angeles-based quartet The Source describe their sound as "John Lennon meets Steve Howe." Why not take that a step further? Well, I think I will: The Beatles meet Yes on All Along This Land, The Source's debut progressive-pop disc. Acoustic guitars dance with Hammond organ, grand piano and keys, while some truly vintage electric guitar solos take listeners back to prog's original heyday. Aaron Goldich's voice sometimes sounds too thin and weak for the material, but he makes up for it with his charismatic and inspired delivery.

All four players bring backgrounds in jazz and classical music to The Source lending these songs unexpected depth and complexity, with melodic layers and instrumental and vocal forays that often recall The Flower Kings. All Along This Land's centerpiece is the rewarding five-part, 22-minute title track. Although it's structured like a typical epic, with shorter and longer sections, it never sounds too long, too excessive or too damn boring. And it helps make this album a promising debut.
