eye Weekly, The Anti-Hit List: Forbidden Planet
October 2004 by John Sakamoto
Number 8 on the Anti-Hit List: ECCENTRIC ORBIT, "Forbidden Planet": What sets this Massachusetts-based prog-rock band apart is not just its instrumental chops -- half of the band holds music degrees -- but its compositional ones, as well. Inspired by the classic sci-fi film, this tightly structured 14-minute opus owes an obvious debt to forerunners such as King Crimson and Gentle Giant, yet never once stoops to mimicry.
