Forever Einstein are an instrumental guitar/bass/drums progressive rock outfit whose roots include musical forms not normally associated with ‘progressive rock’, such as blues, bluegrass, cartoon and film noir soundtracks, surf-rock, western swing and other very American musical forms that stretch back 50 years or more. Additionally, they add a lot of humor into their work, which makes for a musical twist. They use familiar musical elements in unfamiliar and interesting ways, and as a consequence, their music is somehow quite familiar, while being startlingly different.

For their fifth album, Einstein keep many of their trademarked sounds and moves in place while changing some aspects to keep everything fresh. You may love them or you may not, but NO ONE else sounds remotely like Forever Einstein! This is very possibly their best album yet.

"...a must have for the ardent fan of progressive rock or perhaps any rock related genre, as this gang produces a distinct style and methodology that is perhaps unparalled in the business"
-Glenn Astarita/All About Jazz.

"...eccentric, highly original instrumental music that is stimulating, musically challenging and remarkably accessible...the group show that music can be complex, category defining and far reaching and have innate melodic content. Despite the complexities of the music, the trio has a remarkably clean and uncluttered sound."
- Mick Skidmore/Relix.

"They truly deserve the title of power trio. Essentially a rock album, but with some very diverse influences...full of power and complexity"
- Wonderous Stories.
