xx Freedom To Glide (a must for PF lovers)
« Thread started on: May 10th, 2012, 03:42am »

FREEDOM TO GLIDE is the musical endeavor between Andy Nixon (lead guitar, acoustic guitar, vocals, bass, drums) and Pete Riley (keys, piano, vocals, sampling, programming). Their first EP ĎRainí is the epitome of how talented these gentlemen are. The collaborative affair started in a Pink Floyd tribute band Dark Side Of The Wall. It should be an indication of F2g's main influence. The opening notes of title-track (part 1) shift towards a familiar territory with undeniable Gilmour-sounding fluid guitar, distinctive vox and lush keyboards aíla Richard Wright. The song unfolds through a serie of themes and passages. Then EP runs like one continuous piece of work, referring us to the concept from this release. Its idea supported by guest female singer Francesca Genco to add some warmth and depth. The material employs a degree of subtlety thatís wrapped in ethereal high and dramatic low. Throughout the content, production is crisp, giving each instrument the space to breathe and shine. Freedom To Glide have delivered a superb debut that deserves a lot of attention!. cool

When F2g releases their full-length studio album Iíd certainly want to hear it! The sample video on the bandís website gives an accurate taste of what upcoming CD is on offer.

The magazine 'Prog' (a part of renowned 'Classic Rock') are to write a feature on F2g in their 'Limelight' section. This feature will be in the May issue - to be out on 23rd May. Freedom To Glide have been interviewed by Alex Lynham... wink

Agreed, though a bit of artistic licence on the part of the author is OK. wink

Really? I've always found that term annoying. Others on here have said the same too. Oh well...

I just think it's better to say, " A recommendation " or similar.

I agree that saying something like "highly recommended for" would be preferable to the, slightly provocative for some, "must for". Music taste is not a scientific process.

While I agree musical taste is not scientific (as has been pointed out here ad nauseam), I fail to see how calling something a "must" for fans of a specific band/genre would be provocative.

I appreciate others' willingness to share new music they have found.

I see nothing wrong with people making comparative recommendations i.e. if you like Pink Floyd and early Porcupine Tree, there's a good chance you might like Nosound.

While I don't necessarily buy into the phrase "a must for" I certainly don't find it annoying.
I would think anyone who does find it annoying is too easily bothered.

Same here, but no biggie. I understand that some folks may feel like "a must for" is a bit dictatorial, as though we have little free will in the matter. wink 'tain't nobody putting a gun to my head!

Meanwhile, I greatly appreciate the detail and descriptiveness with which Marygold offers these threads. smiley

Many professional reviewers use to end their articles with such recommendation phrase like 'a must have' or 'order your copy today'. Shouldn't I?
