Default The Trilogy

Here's my last 3 albums. It's 3 years of tunes I put together, knocking out 1 album per year. If anyone feels ambitious enough to check it all out, I'd be pretty shocked.

The Dream

Krill

Whale

It's also available here:

I honestly couldn't. They all have their own qualities. Plus, I wouldn't want to taint anyone's opinion.

Bumping and Blitzing here three years after the OP, if Plankton doesn't mind the attention. I've just downloaded his The Dream collection, so the links still work too.

And in an added detail to a real MB talent showcase, here's a short Trollheart review of Plankton's Krill:- http://www.musicbanter.com/1395952-post15.html

Spoiler for oh you...:


Well, this is a nice surprise. It's been a while since I've spent any serious time on a guitar. I did record a little bit before Xmas, but my motivation has been shifted towards other things.

^ HaHa! Well, I hope it's not too embarrassing! I'm going to listen to "The Dream" today and report back later. Hopefully some other guys will comment too.

Not at all. I was just being a goofball with that ^ gif.

I'm expecting to, but have to do a couple of real-life things first.

"The Dream" is a short and sweet collection of songs - just six tracks, none of which break the five-minute barrier, but Plankton packs a lot of quality into into that time anyway:-

With Rise, a relaxed start quickly leads into some tasty guitar playing which winds and weaves up to a higher register. I wish you'd explored this one a bit furthur tbh, Plankton - I'd love to hear the 25-min live jam version!
Farewell to the Sea had a vaguely familiar feel and turns out to be a cover of a Rush song. There is a short section of fast and furious playing in the middle.
Metamorphosis is a self-composition with a more languid approach. Throughout "The Dream", I just love the guitar tone, with it's slightly rough tinny sound. This track displays that to great effect imo.
Pomp 3XT starts with what sounds like a digeridoo, has a bit of fast guitar and a touch of Third Uncle in it, before it concludes with applause. Because the other tracks are clearly studio tracks, for me, it disrupted the flow a little.
But Plankton finishes with a flourish: Flight of the Killer Planton and Floating in Another Time are the equal best tracks imo. Both are a good blend of great guitar playing with some mellower keyboard infills and, in true show-biz tradition, they left me wanting more.

So thanks, Plankton - all round a great collection of guitar tracks!
