Emily Shell Consider the Source is the reason I wake up in the morning sometimes, if the earth goes down the toilet, at least there is Consider The Source, at least humanity ended up producing these three humans who created this music. Thought provoking, emotional prog. They are always trying to better themselves as musicians and, I would imagine, people. They consistently outdo themselves every time I see them play, they've recently been playing Radiohead sets which are unbelievable. This album is one of my all time favorite albums of all time, if not my absolute favorite. Favorite track: Many Words of Disapproval.

aBeeyoyo Best tracks are the So Say We All Trilogy. CTS is one of the most original sounds around. Really liked a return to some acoustic tracks on this one also. Favorite track: So Say We All I.

Dee Ethier Trying to explain this band is always a struggle. They describe themselves as "sci-fi Middle Eastern fusion," but I'd call them a progressive world fusion power trio. Think somewhere between Shakti and The Mars Volta and you're getting warm (hopefully I'm making it clear how hard it is to pigeonhole them).

Anyway, this double album completes the trilogy, and it's incredible. There's a nice mix of acoustic tracks that seem to all use different instruments and world styles along with a variety of plugged-in proggy jams. A few of these are long-time live staples that are just now getting the studio treatment they deserve. The track labeled faux clarinet is to set it apart from the track with actual guest clarinet, as it's honestly hard to tell otherwise. I have to say these guys have somehow outdone themselves with this one. Can't decide on a favorite track, it keeps changing! Highly recommended. Favorite track: Tsim Sha Tsui.

    Much to the excitement of Prog fans worldwide, NYC trio Consider the Source is releasing the second installment of their epic, three part grand vision, World War Trio (Part II & III). Following the dense, nearly 24 minute, five part composition that comprised World War Trio (Part I), this double album begins with the trio of masterful technicians' progressive rock, metal and jazz foundation, then draw from Middle Eastern, Indian and Eastern European traditions - balancing shifting moods and tempos, cerebral and emotional jabs and intellectual and primal pursuits - into a dynamic and cinematic audio experience that has been described by one critic as “the soundtrack to an alien invasion”. A relentless touring schedule has won the band a fervent following from California to Israel, with fans ranging from jam-band hippies and jazz cats to metal headbangers and prog aficionados.
