Mike Harty / Mike Harty / Ahead Lies What...

Ahead Lies What ....What Lies Ahead.....

Excellent musicianship in this piece especially the guitarists. Time for a tide of Awareness and Awakening is what this song says ...carrying us into the Age of Awakening to God and Revelation of Peace on Earth and Good Will toward all men.. The percussion is truly inspired and changes up to a new height with each interlude of progression to a new them. There are many themes in this music that are difficult to put in to words but it is carthartic and an aegis for changing mindsets. It calls to the mind the need for revelations to be sought and the wisdom to be won and put into practice. A Hallmark Composition in your repertoire.

A Review of ‘Ahead Lies What...’ — Mike Harty.

The bridging [or A, A´ or B] section which starts at 01:46 does not match with its neighbouring parts. It sounds like the different musical ideas which are suitable for two songs, all, are combined in one tune. This makes the piece with inconsistency of connectedness among the musical ideas of its sections causing a lack of coherency in general. In fact the section starting from 02:50 up to the end could be recorded as a separate song! Again, the lovely solo starting at 03:24 does not perfectly fit in within the catchy melodic line of the second part of the song which started at 02:50 but it does match with the same melodic line which is repeated at 04:03. Definitely, each individual section by itself, meets the musical standards for some forms of Rock styles.

Ahead lies great jams

Good quality progressive rock is hard to come by but not with this song. A lot of talented playing on a much better and improved mix. It is obvious these guys have worked very hard to get to this point. Two things I hear that I think could make this better. A set of deep lyrics sung by a distinct voice full of personality and better changes as the music breaks. Choppy is the wrong word because some changes are so smooth they are almost awkward, and leave my saying what just happened. So smoothing our the transitions would be my second suggestion, something the drummer could do.

Great instrumental

I really like the style of this group. An instrumental rock well done and well played. At times it reminded me of Jeff Beck, but without seeming to be a plagiarism, just an influence. This time the bass had a little more prominence in a certain part of the song, which I found very interesting, really enjoyed. After that you can sometimes hear the word "yes", which obviously gives you what to think. Probably this band, or at least its famous bass player (r.i.p.), should be an influence, I was just in doubt if this was a homage or if someone from the band was Just kidding with the bass player. I really hope to hear more from them.

Yes!

Fresh rock with fresh sound, Mike Harty give us an overwhelming track where nothing is calm: rhytms and melodies change all the time so all the piece is enthralling. Though, I don't appreciate the "yes" said sometimes...

power instrumental rock vibes

Rock isn't rocket science, it's balls to the wall and it's often at it's best when it's simple, but that doesn't preclude aggressive attitudes and styles either. This is the case here. Solid grooves from the drummer kick that off are blended with melodic guitar lines as themes. There's some smokin' bass guitar in the hyper sections here, too. While it's all leading up to a few drops of effects and the word "yes", this is kinda cool. It's easy to hear how into it the artist is.

if...then...else...

Mike Harty brings us Ahead Lies What... sort of a Quentin Tarantino does Quentin Tarantino in an Album Oriented Rock Theme of pose a query in one song, explore its concept in the next and subsequently answer the question by journey's end. From a listener's standpoint this is a classic trait of the 70's and 80's instrumentalists staple approach. From a producer's standpoint this is one of those efforts that took great pains to achieve production level mastering except it doesn't have the signal strength to call this mastered. This is clearly a mixdown with automation and perhaps it was mastered at some point but it needs to be run through the grinder one more time to give it sufficient levels for the dynamis to be appreciated. Currently the song tracks at -10 with occasional peaks to -7 but they are infrequent. This could stand some boost and still maintain the dynamic range of the song so as to not crush the song as it were.

Class!

This is a really well-balanced and beautifully arranged/produced piece of work. It is great to hear a band that work with each other to give the song the space and feel that it needs with no unnecessary additions. Superb stuff...

Ahead Lies What...

I really like this song a lot! It takes me back to the great rock sound of the 70s with bands such as Styx, Foreigner, Thin Lizzy, The Allman Brothers, Black Sabbath, and Blue Oyster Cult. Keep it up, dudes! You guys sound awesome!

Ahead Lies What.... is fresh and hot.

Very much in the style of Kansas and Mountain, this song is a pleasant blend of some very rocking styles that are always a pleasure to hear. The music changes frequently and this adds considerably to the "live" feel of the production. The guitar work is smooth and melodic without the constant bombardment of 32nd's and exotic scales. This music is raw and hot with a few twists that will surely entertain. Great track. Cheers! Noah Ohne
