Parallel Or Ninety Degrees: A Can of Worms

A Can Of Worms is a 'best of' compilation from progressive rock act Parallel or Ninety Degrees, Keyboard duo Andy Tillson and Sam Baine launched the band in 1996, from then till 2001 the group, also referred to as Po90, were very productive, releasing five albums. Parallel or Ninety Degrees have remained dormant since, due to commitments elsewhere with another band, The Tangent, with which they have enjoyed more success, that is until this release. A Can of Worms has fifteen tracks in total, in addition to some new and unreleased songs, including the track "Blues For Lear" on disc one, a slow number which has Roine Stolt on guitar and vocals.

The production on this ProgRock Records release is spot on, delivering a great crisp sound. If you like lots of Keyboards in your progressive rock, they are put to good use here, this release will be right up your ally.

I couldn't think of a better way to get acquainted with this progressive rock band, there is a lot of material on the two discs to sink your teeth into, including lengthy tracks like "Afterlifecycle Sequence" and "Four Egos One War". This is one 'can of worms' you can open safely from Parallel or Ninety Degrees.
