CD Review: Cleveland band, Intra, has released a new CD called The Glory of The Imperfect. From the spacy sound collage, Traveler, to the more intense Freedom of Will, the band makes their own rules. Consisting of Ray F. Tomorowitz on rhythm guitar and lead vocal, Michael Blazy on drums, Jim Bossard on keys, Mark Tiborsky on bass and vocals and Dan Morris on pedal steel, the band writes all the music while Tomorowitz provides the lyrics.

The sum is greater than the parts here. The band works together to create a jam influenced, cerebral sound that works perfectly with fantasy/sci-fi lyrics to create a unique progressive rock sound. Songs like Beneath The 12th Moon Of Fantasy and The One Tree Forest conjure other worldly images while reminding the listener of bands like The Moody Blues and Yes.

Intra provides a progressive alternative to hard rock and metal and carves their own niche. If you like progressive rock or you're looking for something different, try The Glory Of The Imperfect by Intra.
