 High Flyer             Stories    

This album is mostly instrumental / electronic with some atmospheric vocals and features acoustic and electric guitars throughout. Rich and varied, the music will conjure up many moods and feelings and will appeal to fans of music by bands such as Yes etc. and all those who appreciate music with emotional depth, variety and power. In some ways, the music could be said to have a 'film-score' feel and some of the pieces have an 'epic' quality. If that sounds of interest to you, you can listen to more music samples from the CD on the Listen page. The album is available for sale from this website. Every purchase comes with a full guarantee and often incudes bonus items. Check the Order CD page for full details.

Here are a few snippets from reviews of the CD. The full text can be found on the Reviews page.

Indie-Music.com, reviewed by Travis Dow, July 2008:

¨With its opening few notes, the album bursts out with a clear vision. DuBerry is an artist with something to say and the skills to put it across. It’s impossible not to be drawn into the message, and amazing to realize how much emotional information can be gleaned without lyrics to spell it out for us.¨

Alex Willem from ‘Prog Resiste’, a Belgian magazine of Progressive Rock, Issue 48 April 2007:

¨Head Room is a good instrumental album which invites you on a voyage, exterior or interior and in time or space. An album which it is good to let yourself be taken along with.¨

Road Records, October 2006:

¨The overall sounds range from the almost Steve Reich like repetitive guitar sounds of opening track Tribute to a much more prog rock sounding version of the likes of The Future Sound of London, take in a bit of seventies breezy jazz rock along the way and you end up with a highly entertaining album.¨
