Review by Kimberly Annette

Buffalo-based progressive rock band Turning Virtue releases a powerfully dynamic new CD, A Temporary Human Experience (ATHE). Mixed by the incredible prowess of Tim Palmer (Porcupine Tree, Pearl Jam, U2, Robert Plant, David Bowie) and Mastered by a second industry heavy hitter Andy VanDette (Steven Wilson, Porcupine Tree, Rush, Dream Theater, Fates Warning), it’s easy to understand why A Temporary Human Experience rises above the norm.

The virtuosic talent that is Turning Virtue comes from members David Karczewski (Guitars, Keyboards, Vocals), DPA (Bass), Carl Cino (Guitars) and Mark Zonder (Drums). The inspirations for the nine track ATHE came about through honest soul searching and the close friendships the band members have formed allowing the effulgent depth of the quartet’s creativity and musical ability flourish on each track of ATHE.

“Transcend” the first release off the CD speaks to the soul with lyrical depth, hauntingly melodic guitar, and ardent rhythm. The rest of the CD follows in line from the sardonic “Theody” to the delicate perfection of “These Things” each track is full of true treasure.

A Temporary Human Experience is currently streaming on Spotify and is available for purchase on their website, CD Baby and Amazon. For more information see the links below.
