Raptorgnosis is the follow-up to Jack Foster III’s Jazzraptor.  Joining Foster on the album are Trent Gardner and Robert Berry, both of whom also produced the effort. The album might remind listeners of the 80’s progressive “supergroup” Asia, as the songs range from tight and compelling rockers to tamer ballads.  Like Asia, the trio here seems to seek an identity beyond their progressive roots and into the world of corporate power pop.

The lush production and solid, guitar-driven sound of “Ebb and Flow” segues into the acoustic ballad “Heaven and Earth” and then back to one of the album’s hardest rockers, “Koan,” with its chorus, “God is a question, God is a page; God is an answer, God is a story,” etc.  Lyrically, the album seems to embrace Christian values, as does, perhaps, the album’s title itself.  Progressive rock fans with similar sensibilities might be most intrigued by Raptorgnosis.

Favorite Track: Track 1, “Ebb and Flow”
