The Jury Disagree – Utopian Dream
Utopian Dream is spellbinding, acoustic genius. The follow up EP to Black is the Beyond, Utopian Dream continues weaving these wizards’ spell. It’s a Celtic knot of acoustic harmonies; each guitar blending and flowing into one another in seamless loops and curlicues.
The title track, Utopian Dream opens this epic with a prologue of poetry and power playing settling the listener in for the tales to follow. Even Out plays with harmonica and vocal harmonics, and easy going, yet intricate guitar riffs.
Art of Concealment transitions into more intense, classical guitar meets rock riffs. Big Sign is haunting vocals continuing this saga of sound. Send Me on My Way wraps up this Odyssean musical journey with the same integrity. This EP is a brilliant bit of magic. And side note, the cover art is also fab. Noelle Ellis, GiggingNI.com
