Fibonacci Sequence - "We Three Kings" (Fibonacci Music Ltd 2009)
From Aural Innovations #41 (October 2010)
We Three Kings is a CD single consisting of the title track and the track Neap Tide from the album Numerology.
It is a progressive rock version of the classic Christmas Yule tide nonsense We Three Kings of Orient are, bearing gifts we travel so far etc. Yes! This shocks me as much as you, but gladly there is no singing and it is as far removed from the song apart from the main melody.
The sound is heavy progressive rock and the musicianship is excellent throughout the 16 minutes. The style, for want of similarities, falls around the likes of Yes in places, maybe Goblin and King Crimson could also be mentioned, but only as a source of sound. As we all know Progressive Rock tends to spread wide in terms of sound, and can often fall on the arty farty, choppy changey etc, and this is what we find here on We Three Kings.
This is not a bad thing, as this is what the Progressive Rock fans want, and any Progressive Rock fan will love Fibonacci Sequence. Myself however, I am not a big Progressive Rock man, and cannot really get into it that much. I only chose the CD because of the name of the band, me being into things like that, I am not a big fan, but I could recommend it to those of you who like well-delivered arty Progressive Rock. For me it just goes a bit overboard.
