Hey! Here's a great idea - take all the tedious aspects of prog, and make an entire album of it! Nobody will find it boring at all! This is up there as honestly one of the most self-indulgent displays of wankery I've ever come across, and I'm a man who knows all about wanking.
Some albums with a high rating on the bore scale have value as a substitute for sleeping medication, this album doesn't. You know those really annoying rhythmic passages you can't wait to end? The ones that have the same feel to them as being a passenger in a stalling car? Yeah, those ones - this album consists 90% of those, so any hope of just nodding off and waking up when it's over is gone. It's basically a Tool album, remove any effective atmosphere set by the eerie, stark sounding tranquil bits and you've got Proghma-C.
It looks like someone did make a solid attempt to polish this turd, though. There is occasionally some halfway decent melodies brought out, but nothing that really makes this any more exciting. Oh, and the supposed death metal influence you'll rarely hear. It's also not that this album is particularly terrible, in order to make something terrible one needs to make a big leap into something different enough to stand out in your mind. Bar-Do Travel is basically another one of those albums you won't remember having listened to a couple hours later. To sum things up this album is merely flat and unremarkable. Perhaps the more prog-inclined crowd would find this album OK, but I doubt much more than that.
