The debut album from London’s Pure Reason Revolution, The Dark Third suggests that progressive rock, long-treated as a pariah in self-respecting musical circles, is no longer afraid to speak its name. Boasting a name inspired by Kantian philosophy, a number of songs in two distinct ‘movements’, and a flagship single – the mighty "The Bright Ambassadors Of Morning" – that clocks in at twelve minutes in length, here is a band unafraid to untether the unicorns of ambition and let them gallop free. This is not always a wise idea. Without the sheer, dazzling proficiency of Yes or the hulking heaviness of King Crimson, affairs occasionally get bogged down in a mire of sub-Sigur Ros atmospherics that drift along with little discernable purpose. There are, however, a number of saving graces: the Beach Boys-inspired vocal interplay of John Courtney and Chloe Alper, voices coalescing in lullaby-like harmonies; or an occasional, sparking heaviness that manifests most clearly on the tricksy, hard-riffing climax to ‘The Twyncyn/Trembling Willows’.
