Formed back in 2004 Tinyfish include vocalist Simon Godfrey ex-Freefall and unlike most prog rock bands they don't have a keyboard player, relying instead on using guitar synths. After some spoken word intro (provided by Rob Ramsey, who along with Simon Godfrey is one of the main songwriters) it is into an up tempo number with some wondrous drums/percussion and vocal harmonies. You can hear hints of modern day Marillion in this one.

'Fly Like A Bird' drops the pace and features a neat guitar solo, whilst 'Nine Months On Fire' lures you in with some oriental stylings but then pans out into a fairly standard song. 'Sundried' is a stand out with added string arrangements and it stand quite apart from the other songs on here. The title track closes the album and the guitar and overall sound bring to mind Pink Floyd.

Tinyfish may not appeal to hardcore prog rock fans as their sound encompasses elements of soft rock, with much of the playing in a laid back style and not full of intricate time changes etc. An album worthy of investigation that's for sure but can't see how it made Classic Rock magazine's 'Top 50' of 2007. A solid, assured debut but not a classic.
