Icon33 JJ on Tomas Bodin's new CD, "IAM"

Hey folks, I just picked up Tomas Bodin's new CD "I AM", and I have to tell you it's quite good. JJ's got some great playing on this thing! The overall sound of the album is reminiscent of what you'd get if you mixed Pink Floyd, early Yes, Eighties-era Marillion and a healthy modern dose of ass kicking. Atmospheric, contemplative and at times frenetic. I wholeheartedly recommend it. Why can't more artists be this creative?

Cheers...Todd

Icon37 Bodin's CD....

Hi,
yep - I have to agree about music, but the singer Anders Jansson is (IMHO) horrible, just like Roger Waters at his worst...

If you like this CD, perhaps you should try The Flower Kings' early albums! I like The Rainmaker a lot. Their live DVD is also worth watching.

...and if you like those, perhaps you should check also Tangent's albums...

I don't mind his singing. I think it serves the song well enough. Nothing to write home about, I guess, but I've heard far worse. Like Roger Waters at this past week's Live 8 show, lol.


Cheers...Todd

Funnily enough, Rainmaker is the only Flower Kings record I don't enjoy that much. Still it's a good album, of course. Too straight forward for my taste.

A note for the collectors .... only recently I have acquired an original vinyl picture disc copy of their first Album on the Swedish Record Heaven label. Nice one

Cheers,
Christian

As has been mentioned, it's definitely worth tracking this one down and great to hear JJ stretching his musical muscles

Here's a bit of a taster!

Here's a recent review of the I AM album, with good mention of JJ's participation and surprisingly found in the latest issue of Classic Rock magazine of all places!
