Conclusive third part of the Geoff Tate's musical trilogy
'The New Reality' is the conclusive third part of the musical trilogy created by former Queensryche vocalist Geoff Tate. It's produced, mixed and mastered by Kelly Gray in Seattle and follows the same formula as the prior two offerings. Its an eclectic trip, built on an array of instrumentation that creates soft textures and a jazz-lounge mood. Robust percussion keeps it lively, and there's a handful of stand-out cuts. I enjoy it despite it's temperamental differences--it's not heavy or hard, but rather a slow-burn built on atmosphere.
