The Phoenix Rose “Planet”

On Planet, The Phoenix Rose create a wholly unique effort that links together the taut pop-rock of later Genesis, a bit of 311-styled modern rock, and the orchestral pomp of Dream Theater. Throw in some huge jazz-infused bass and a bit of reggae wobble and one will have some semblance of what The Phoenix Rose is trying to do here. The band picks up speed at around the 3:25 mark, wowing fans with an impressively rendered backing instrumentation (e.g. sizzling guitar work, ropy bass lines). The extended run time of Planet goes by in an instant; one will have to play this composition multiple times to fully understand the range of approaches and sounds that are presented here.
