Peter Jones Just hearing the title track was enough to capture my interest. Jazz-influenced and progressive, great-sounding tracks with a fair amount of straight-up rock, too. Favorite track: Real Roses.

distant planet Excellent and melodic prog rock with some added countryfied mysticism. Some interesting jazzy guitar chords (almost Joni Mitchell in places) mixed with powerful rock riffs. Jack is a superb musician and his vocals are superb too - vaguely reminds me of Kevin Gilbert at times...The production is great too, aided by Mr Robert Berry no less. Jack has also worked with Trent Gardner of Magellan in the past..
These songs were originally intended for a rock opera that didn't eventually happen... Favorite track: Guinevere's Dead.

Many of the songs on this album were written as part of a rock opera. The rock opera fell apart, but the songs are still here!

Survival! Survival! Survival!

Go ask the gods. Go ask the gods.

This is the way an idea becomes real
the void is transcended, 'n' the numb starts to feel
most move along slowly, without a real plan
uncertain if even the product of man
and ideas are fragile things
and there are no guarantees

What are the odds? Go ask the gods.

most don't survive long outside of the ether
from which they were pulled, kicking and screaming
pink and unformed, they take getting used to
and ya can't get untangled once they take roost
and ideas are fragile things
and there are no guarantees
no there are no guarantees
no there are no guarantees
of survival, ... survival

That's why we reach for connections we've lost
two minds can sometimes improve the odds
two people in love can challenge the odds
of survival. survival.
survival
of an idea.

This is the day you our daughter was born
an idea made real in your small perfect form
a vibrant fragile thing
just a magic drifting dream
but there are no guarantees . . .

there are no guarantees . . .

What are the odds? Go ask the gods; go ask 'em.

Survival . . . of an idea.
