More information: Genuine originality is a rare commodity in progressive rock today, however Carptree is an exception. Insiders speak of a parallel to Fish/Marillion regarding Niclas Flinck and Carl Westholm’s project, possibly due to Niclas’ voice, but apart from that there is no comparison. It is a crutch at best, to categorize the complex songs by the Swedish duo and conveys to the listener, a vague impression of what to expect of Carptree. Their third album “Man Made Machine” is a beguiling, somewhat dark and strange sounding combination of diverse styles that are deeply rooted in progressive rock.
