Purposeful Porpoise - The Water Games (2014)

The one and only album from this band from USA.

The band was a quintet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars, violin, keyboards and vocals.

The band was helped out by a handful of guests who provided sitar, moog, guitars and vocals.

This album is the brainchild of Alex Cora on guitars and vocals. 

He got some help from four other pretty known musicians from Dream Theater, Meat Loaf, Frank Zappa and Yngwie Malmsteen to get this album done.

This album is very long, clocking in at ninety minutes.

The music is muscular melodic progressive rock somewhere between US neo-prog and art-rock. There is also a lot of Electric Light Orchestra influences here.

There is a lot of female vocals and violins here. That sets the album a bit a part from the run-of-the-mill albums. 

The music is not particular good and I am not won over by this album. 


2.5 points
