"Ivory Tower Project’s style is a throwback to the expansive sound of bands like Styx and Kansas. The band recently released their album 'How Much More?', which is textured rock without the formulaic hooks. This is the kind of layered music meant for listening.

"How Much More?" is certainly a track that has been well produced with love for the sound that fans of ITP have come to love over the years that they have been producing some brilliant tracks. This track is certainly one that opens up the albums and sets you up for the rest of the tracks to enjoy.
