The Phantom Tollbooth
Music and more from a Christian perspective
Slow down, and have your change ready
The vocal quartet’s swansong leaves a ghostly echo in the brain
Elder Creek is a great example of new-wave or crossover prog, and tells a story of memory. A unique mix of symphonic prog, psychedelic rock, folk ballad, and classical mythology, this is an uplifting album with the power to entertain, encourage, and invigorate.
This is an album that demands a physical reaction (in my case: air guitar, air drums and random punching the sky) but it is also chock-full of a spiritual power and musical excellence. Virtually guaranteed a place in the 2015 best-ofs and surely a career best for Morse? In many places it's virtually perfect.
