A New Breed of Old School Rockers

Press

Ivory Tower Project has received rave reviews and airplay all over the world; here is a small collection of some of the most current reviews on the new CD 'How Much More?' 


"[ITP's] latest recording 'How Much More?' really is a tour de force encompassing a variety of music styles around a core theme of Classic American AOR...At times you are listening to a reinvention of classic American Rock before being taken on a journey back to the days of extended 12" remixes or an adventure through inspired guitar solos that shout out 'Prog Rock!'...an album that is a credit to their talent and creativity. Elobeatlesforever (Elobf) recommends 'How Much More?' by Ivory Tower Project to those enlightened folks who enjoy the music of ELO, Jeff Lynne, Roy Wood, The Move, The Idle Race, 'Brum Beat', The Beatles and related artistes." -- Keith J. Sinclair, ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF), United Kingdom


"Ivory Tower Project's album ['How Much More?'] promotes and rekindles the classic sound of 70 and 80s Rock/Pop… you can find elements of the Corporate Rock that gave the band Boston great success… as well as a mixture of the R&B and Soul style of the east coast, Surfer Rock from the west coast, and yes... even a little Tejano from down south. Their ability to mix styles and influences gives a unique sound to their genre and, although it may sound familiar, it's completely new." -- Cat, Cat's Doghouse, British Columbia, Canada


“[ITP’s] shared love for the music of Styx, Queen, Foreigner or Boston has helped shape this album; ‘How Much More?’…The title track, that starts life as an emotive piano ballad accompanied by crying guitar lines. But it does not take that long before those Melodic Rock references are coming to the fore...Next is the Shakespearean tragedy made into a rock song: ‘The Ides Of March (Et tu Brute?)’. It is also nice to hear the band infuse some prog keyboard influences into their songs…Personal highlights for me are ‘Burning (Full Length Remix) ’, ‘Way To Late (Full Length Remix)’ and the beautiful ballad ’Always’… With 14 tracks and a playing time of almost 70 minutes, there is a lot to offer”. -- Peter Cox, Your Music Blog, Netherlands


“This ['How Much More?'] is a nice album that takes you back to late 70s and early 80s. There's lots of influences from bands such as Boston, Reo Speedwagon, Styx, Cannata and Kansas…The opening song ‘How Much More?’ with a slow start, but turns out to a nice rocker in the chorus and it's a good one. ‘The Ides Of March (Et tu Brute?)’ is great with a sing-a-long chorus with a touch of Boston mixed with Reo Speedwagon. ’Please Tell Me’ is a great mid-tempo rocker with layers of melodies and a strong chorus." -- Juha Harjula, Melodic.net, Sweden


"The title track from the forthcoming album ['How Much More?'] opens with a piano accompanied by a dreamy guitar which leads to the vocals that build up the track before it ramps up with a 70s/80s classic pop/rock feel that ties in beautifully with the lyrics. '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." -- Karen Woodham, Blazing Minds, United Kingdom
