Quick Overview

"The UK private press You Better Take It strikes me as sort of a lower-budget After The Fire Signs Of Change, combined with a hint of Gentle Giant. That puts Driver in the progressive art-rock category, and a fairly fine example of it I might add. The low-tech vibe doesn’t preclude lots of fancy synthesizers, coupled with aggressive electric rhythm guitar, bass and drums. Usually a brisk tempo with lots of lengthy instrumental passages. Nine original songs: the title track, ‘Hear I Am’, ‘Power In Me’, ‘Psalm’, ‘So They Say’, ‘Destination Zion’, ‘Like A Mirror’, ‘I’m Not Dreaming’ and ‘Marananthem’. Back cover says “This album recorded at the thaumaturgic Studio Playground Wragby as quickly & cheaply as possible.” In fact and according to Mojo, 300 copies of this were made and the album went unnoticed. Very few copies ever turned up. This is one of them. You can see this album in the latest 6001 Pokora record collector book with 3 stars… "
