Fly Over Country - Welcome to Fly Over Country

Fly Over Country
“Welcome to Fly Over Country is an album of art rock, inspired by artists such as Steely Dan, Rush, Duran Duran, Tears for Fears, Macha and many more.” This is a debut solo effort by Ben Seigel with a little bit of oddness in it.

Here are the tracks:
Better than Nothing 4/4, 2/4
Seasons of the Mind 4/4
Borders Drawn and Rearranged 4/4
All Your Stories 4/4, 5/4, 6/4
Cold Beyond Winter 4/4, 6/4
Late Nights 4/4, 7/4
Organic Fruit Cart Disaster 4/4
Blue Sweater 4/4
Tonight My Stars Went Out 4/4
Borders Remix 4/4

My favorites are “Borders Drawn and Rearranged” – the darkest sounding track and “Organic Fruit Cart Disaster” cool song name and riffs. For some reason I keep thinking of the Alan Parson’s Project when I listen to this CD, maybe because the overall feel is Pop Prog. I admire the musicianship on this effort especially the bass playing and one of the bass player’s name is Chris Kringel (for real?). You can find out more and obtain their music at FlyOverCountry.

Keepin' it ODD,
