    Prog Head, even if you flog it.
    Wow! I thought I was bad, typing letters disguised as postings,
    and replying to myself,
    but I can see I've met my match, as you are infusing me with your muse.

    And just in case you're wondering where I'm at as a musician, or songwriter,
    here's a new line that probably will become a song, a protest song.
    slacker dance beat, thinking slow dancers might get meditative with it.

    "I don't know what's making a bigger splash no more,
    water from this can of tuna, or waves along the shore."

    That's my verdict:

    'Transitions' is an apt name for the second release from TIME HORIZON. When comparing the band's axis to the previous CD, it's clear that the US formation had a number of personnel changes since 2011. Luckily, the major figure still remains Ralph Otteson who’s responsible for the songwriting, entourage of whimsical keyboards and backing vocals. At the moment, a primary line-up is complemented by Dave Miller (guitars) and Allen White (bass). Standing at the helm, Ralph Otteson also gathered a handful of guests, among whom I want to single out Yes alumni Tony Kaye, Billy Sherwood, plus David Wallimann (formerly Glass Hammer). Worthy of special note is Michael Mullen, violinist… The material on 'Transitions' falls into the listening scope of many different stripes. Time Horizon use a vast range of influences stretching from symphonic AOR to electronica, from bombastic sections to virtuoso guitar craze, from power pop to retro-flavored prog. Alternation of three lead singers (Bruce Gaetke, Rich Reif, Jake Livgren) increases the feel of manifold. The individual tracks weave together nicely to present an excellent stylized affair. Foremost, ‘Only One’ provides a strong impetus to the album. Expansive and consummately performed, this track is quite reminiscent of classic Asia, with a taste of bombastic passages and massive choruses. That's just the beginning. Next up, ‘Only Through Faith’. Having its own character, it brings a-la Vangelis mesmerizing sentiment. The sonic experiment segues to ‘Only Today’, where TH presents the other incarnation of Asia (John Payne era). In some extent, ‘Prisoner’ evokes Sweet Comfort Band ('Cutting Edge' period). A cover version of the World Trade song, ‘Moment Is Here’, follows subsequently. It contains a few Yes references, both in the instrumental department and harmonies. Music varies on the next track that deviates in route. Featuring emphatic riffs and acrobatic chord progressions, the instrumental piece ‘About Time’ could well be a Joe Satriani legacy. The album continues with a thickly arranged composition 'You're All I Need’ which resembles the style set forth on the debut CD. Then, a kind of peculiar experiment titled ‘River of Sorrows’. Generally speaking, if I had to find fault then it’d be that. The penultimate tune, another instrumental - 'Water Girl'. Comprising the mellow guitar awesomeness, it swings back and forth between Vinnie Moore and Joe Satriani. Though most importantly, the CD has a stupendous ending: ‘Love Is Here’ may be described as the greatest song Kansas never wrote. I am getting a chill up my spine!.. All in all, gracefully packaged (with an appealing image on the surface) 'Transitions' is a 56+ min. collection of impressive stuff that reflects the breadth of interests and sources of inspiration. Recommended.
