ALL TOO HUMAN


"Entropy" (R/R Records)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

"Entropy" is eight tracks worth of some of the most original and impressive progressive hard rock you're likely to hear. An absolutely intriguing cross-section of Dream Theater and Rush, "Entropy" is a major find for those looking to increase their library of quality progressive rock.

Each track on "Entropy" is a mini-epic, told with intelligent lyrics, sweeping soundscapes and incredible technical expertise. It isn't easy for a relatively unknown band to sound as complex and sophisticated as supergroups like Rush and Dream Theater, but All Too Human pulls it off nicely. The band knows how to balance emotion and instrumental mastery and they do so brilliantly throughout "Entropy," especially on tracks like "Undone."

Fans of progressive rock should do themselves a favor and check out All Too Human immediately. As if the band's unique sounds and talents weren't enough, the CD also features a guest appearance by the legendary Derek Sherinian on keyboards.

Entropy: Dan DuZan - vocals; Chris Lucci - drums and percussion; Maurice Taylor - bass; Clint Wilson - guitars. Special guest: Derek Sherinian - keyboards.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
