Nova Collective - The Further Side album review

The best of Prog you can get this month

Cover art for Nova Collective - The Further Side album

Haken guitarist Richard Henshall and Between The Buried And Me bassist Dan Briggs take no prisoners on their debut, a jazz-fusion thrill ride, fleshed out by Trioscapes drummer Matt Lynch and ex-Haken keyboardist Pete Jones. Crisp production, sublime musicality and the odd curveball – Ripped Apart And Reassembled is a hybrid of Gentle Giant and Robin’s Nest – posit a jaw-dropping new unit.
