Sean Malone is a master at what he does. His skill is unsurpassed, and he shines like a supernova on Emergent. This is one of the finest examples of progressive rock you will likely ever hear. Hard to classify, and impossible to take out of your CD player, Emergent is an unbelievable album. By surrounding himself with some of the finest musicians on the planet, Bill Bruford, Steve Hackett..etc…Sean Malone has crafted a record that demands multiple listens. This is a technically perfect collection of music, from the hypnotic and cathartic Muttersprache to the staggeringly beautiful Grace, every song on this disk is a masterpiece. The musicianship put forth on Emergent is a perfect example of musical synergy, these guys can play. Without sparring back and forth for solo time Malone and crew weave intricate patterns and play off of each other so well at times it seems like they are a single entity. Every music fan should own this album. If you don’t, get it now. You won’t be disappointed.
