Music Album Review: Tiles - "Pretending 2 Run" (9/10)

Detroit-based prog-rock quartet Tiles have never shied away from musically ambitious and epic projects and compositions. Over their 20-plus year career they’ve released a catalog of live and studio works that have garnered the praise of everyone from Gene Simmons of KISS to Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson. But, with their first album, Pretending 2 Run, for Laser’s Edge, they’ve upped the ante by giving the listener a double disc with an engaging storyline, meticulously arranged string and choral pieces, sweet vocal harmonies and tuneful jam-based rock, fusion and world beat sounds. Also there is an impressive guest list to round out the festivities.

Score: 9 out of 10
