The Dreaming Tree: Progress Has No Patience

AOR/Melodic/Progressive Rock
Rating: 4.0/5.0

With a surprisingly refreshing and entertaining work, UK's The Dreaming Tree return with their sophomore disc of studio material, Progress Has No Patience. TDT effectively blends elements of pop, prog, and fundamental melodic rock, with the emphasis on skillful piano, synth, and guitar, throughout this work. Many of the songs found here are staples of their live performances. First impressions have you wondering, if there might be to much eclecticism in the compositions. Arcadia seems like harder melodic pop rock while Moult can be equally wistful and aggressive in its arrangement. These impressions pass as you discover Progress Has No Patience is enigmatically both inspiring and entertaining. It's dangerously pleasing, soothing you with a well pleasing musical aura, an airy and significant channeling of classic 70's AOR and prog on Slender Versions of the Truth and Grown Too Small. TDT stumbles slightly on the rather lackluster Love and the Heart but, otherwise this is a terrific album with great songs. The Dreaming Tree's Progress Has No Patience is inspired pop/prog/melodic rock entertainment. Mostly airy and atmospheric, but sometimes aggressive, this work is perfect a warm summer afternoon with a fine wine or a strong ale. Very recommended.
