TCP / Press

“This is high quality art rock which features superb musicianship on all levels”

“Fantastic Dreamer is immediately engaging.”

“an engaging amalgam of compositional sophistication with math-rock undercurrents; wide contrasts in dynamics, dramatic vocal delivery and stellar musicianship.”

“Some people will try and convince you that Prog is dying, or staid. Let bands like TCP prove them wrong and laugh in their face!”

“This is what prog is all about!”

“#5 Best Album of 2011”

“Henry éclabousse littéralement cet album par son talent, que ce soit avec ses compositions, ses textes ou sa voix.”

“Henry literally splashes the album with his talent, whether with his compositions, his lyrics or his voice.”

“...simply one of the best releases of 2011”

“una banda de profundo carácter progresivo provenientes de Estados Unidos, han editado, probablemente, el mejor disco del 2011. Después del sorprendente The way (2009), estos brillantes cerebros “yankees” han parido una obra maestra. Fantastic Dreamer es un auténtico cofre dorado lleno de rico progresivo, muy bien trabajado y madurado a la perfección”

“Fantastic Dreamer is easily an early candidate for Prog Album of 2011”

“[TCP] has probably produced the best album of 2011. After the amazing The Way (2009), these brilliant “Yankee” minds have delivered a masterpiece. Fantastic Dreamer is a treasure chest full of rich progressive, well-crafted music...”

“Although it’s still early days, TCP have undoubtedly come up with my favourite album of 2011 thus far. They skilfully combine modern progressive rock sensibilities with the drama and (slightly eccentric) grandeur of bands like Genesis and Gentle Giant...”

“TCP are unabashedly eclectic, with roots in the great progressive tradition and some recognizable classic influences, yet no fear of dipping their collective toes in more modern waters.”

“This album [Fantastic Dreamer] is just incredible. Please don't miss the opportunity to get in on the ground floor of this band.”

“...plenty of twists and turns to make Fantastic Dreamer into what should genuinely be held up as a progressive rock classic - and I don't say that lightly. This is an album that never drops from start to finish, with the quality of musicianship and composition remaining staggeringly high throughout.”

“Vielmehr erscheint mir TCP wie ein durchdachtes Ganzes: Das Songwriting, die musikalische Umsetzung, die Texte und sogar das Design des Artworks und des Booklets passen ideal zusammen. Dies ist für eine erst so kurz existierende Band absolut ungewöhnlich.”

“[Fantastic Dreamer] will delight fans of the progressive seventies, of Genesis, Pink Floyd, but then Fish, Marillion, IQ, Carptree or Juipiter Society. If you're one of them, do not miss this album under any circumstances”

“Il régalera les fans du progressif des seventies, de Genesis, Pink Floyd, mais aussi Marillion époque Fish, IQ, Carptree ou Jupiter Society. Si vous êtes de ceux-là, ne manquez cet opus sous aucun prétexte”

“...the fact that remains is that I have been fascinated by this album and what it has to offer to the point that it has been continuously playing for the past 2 weeks.”

“...one of the most diverse neo-minded releases to come about in a long time - boldly bolstering sonics that is just as strong as anything that Pendragon has done.”

“What every great band needs is an epic song that helps elevate them beyond the vast crowd of artists out there struggling for attention. "Vision" is that song for TCP. I think this one will someday be celebrated like the great prog epics of our time.”

“In conclusion I can only say this album [The Way] combines the best characteristics of the legends in prog music with astonishing original compositions and superb craftsmanship”

“The musicianship is absolutely top notch, the progressive structures are impeccable and the emotional appeal of the songs undeniable.”

“If The Light, by Spock's Beard (1995) only vaguely predicted the incredible career which followed, The Way, by its force and its coherence, embraces these incredible hopes.”

“...they combine all of the best characteristics that encompasses the progressive rock genre...this [The Way] is one of the better debuts of 2009..”

“..mentre “Liberate Me” ritmata ed ottimamente arrangiata, segue le gesta dei Gentle Giant, tanto per rimanere in tema anni ’70. Bello l’intermezzo di chitarra. Lascio per ultima la stupenda “Mankind” con un piano eccellente che entra dentro e lascia partire la nostra fantasia.”

“...primary Genesis comparisons come in the form of Henry Tarnecky's Peter Gabriel-inspired vocals, Blake Tobias' dancing keys ...Shallow thinkers need not bother.”

Micheal Popke - Progression Magazine - Issue #57

"The album deserves a ranking in the "World Ten", and TCP most certainly deserves your attention..."

“Si The Light, de Spock’s Beard (1995) ne laissait que vaguement présager de l’incroyable carrière qui suivra, The Way, par sa force et sa cohérence internes, embrasse de folles espérances.”

“...classic prog gets a good injection of more modern musical ideas. Vocalist Henry Tarnecky has a really good voice that seems to be able to adapt to the changing musical landscapes totally effortlessly, and with enormous confidence.”

“Just received 'The Way'. What an absolutely spectacular musical achievement! Thank you for following your convictions and going deep...”

“...jangly guitars, metaphors of six string crunch, staccatos, odd time signatures, key changes, flourishing synths, ‘Trons, multi-faceted production, and active tune variances, TCP proves to be an inventive band.”

“Progressive Band and Album of the Month, May 2009”

“The singer, Henry Tarnecky, will attract the ear by his very particular voice that sometimes recalls that of Peter Gabriel...”

“Henry Tarnecky, le chanteur attirera l'oreille par sa voix très particulière qui rappelle tantôt celle de Peter Gabriel...”

“...they know how to create an astonishing, amazing and vibrant progressive rock music... very impressive, full of grandiose passages, the instrumentation displays a deep Progressive Rock feeling, combining Symphonic elements, with hints of Hard Rock and Prog Metal”

“...[a] unique sound exploring the depths of art and progressive rock (bringing to mind early David Bowie, Genesis, King Crimson, and Phideaux among others)”

“Their style pays homage to 70s greats like Genesis, but they are not copycats by any means. They incorporate modern sounds in their old style approach that sounds absolutely fantastic to these ears.”

“Excellent American surprise...TCP enchants the audience for various reasons: an excellent sound, original compositions, superb flights, Mellotron...”

“Excellente surprise américaine...TCP enchante l’auditoire pour différentes raisons: un son excellent, des compositions originales, des envolées superbes, un Mellotron entêtant...”

“...this really comes highly recommended with some clever and creative arrangements that make this a hugely entertaining listen...”

“..the voice of Tarnecky is an incredible feature. Fans of progressive? ...jump on this album without hesitation!”

“I can't believe that the Genesis discussion boards aren't buzzing about TCP and "The Way."...best of all, the material and musicianship are top drawer! Highly recommended!”

“...la voix de Tarnecky est d'une particularité incroyable. Fans de progressif ? Alors sautez sur cet opus sans hésiter ! Il vous rappellera bien des choses. ”

“All in all an Excellent Debut Album that should be checked out. These guys have a bright future! ”

“Mellotron lovers dig in deep, as there's plenty of sumptuous sounds to be heard here, alongside a plethora of other keyboard tapestries, stellar guitar work, and tight grooves. The Way is, quite simply, way cool.”
