Meaningful Songs: Spiral Architect - Insect

Spiral Architect - Insect

From listening to Radical Research's latest podcast about A Skeptic's Universe, I was reminded about how great this band and album was. And "Insect" specifically.

It has this fascinating blend of being jazzy and extremely busy, while giving each instrument space to breath. The bass work especially is almost Jaco-like.

Almost taking like Mahavishnu Orchestra and Cynic and using a singer like John Arch, with pristine production and I'm sure a ton of time and thought into the production alone.

Oddly how I'm seeing Fates Warning tomorrow night, and the podcast they even included SA's cover of "Prelude to Ruin" at the end of the show.
