Review

It's four years ago Fair To Midland released their magnificent album"Fables from a Mayfly: What I Tell You Three Times Is True" and the wait is finally over and phew... what an album Darroth Sudderth and his men have done! This album will without any doubts end up high on my chart over 2011 best albums. The productions signed by Joe Barresi(Kyuss, The Melvins, Queens of the Stone Age, Coheed and Cambria, Tool and more) is absolutely stunning and the performance from the band is... brilliant. And Darroth voice is one of the absolute coolest this earth has to offer with a span that no one else sits on. The album is filled with absolutely stunning songmaterial like the first single "Musical Chairs", "Short Haired Tornado" and the last one out - the over ten minute long"The Greener Grass". Modern progressive rock doesn't get better than this. Far To Midland plays in the highest divisions and it is just to bow and say a big freekin' BRAVO.
