The Smallest Creature

Reboot (Digital Single)

Review by Gary Hill

I've not heard these guys before. I really hope to hear a lot more from them. This is an amazing piece of music. Perhaps it's not prog rock, but it clearly has some shared ground with things like Pink Floyd and Porcupine Tree.
 
This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2016  Volume 5 at lulu.com/strangesound.
Track by Track Review
Reboot
This song is very cinematic in texture. It's a powerful and reaches incredibly tall heights. There are parts here that feel in line with 1980s stuff like REM. However, the links to things like the proggier end of Radiohead and Porcupine Tree are stronger. There is even a recurring segment that makes me think of Rush a bit. This is a complex and very dynamic piece of music. It's also compelling and extremely powerful.

(Editor's Note - Music Street Journal is set up for the allocation of albums, not singles - particularly not one-song singles. So, in the instances, like this one, where we've covered single song releases, we've had to make some adaptations for formatting. In the case of this one, just imagine both track review and overall review reading as one set of copy. )
