Canada's Flyte is a retrospective release on the Long Island label. The band are a musical expression of ideas between the two mainstays of the band, Paul Taskas and Nick Monaco. Most of the material appears to span the 1988-1992 period. According to the liner notes, the material originally surfaced as a ten track release on tape, which was distributed widely throughout the local Toronto area. So, who do they sound like? How about a cross between fellow Canadians Korea meeting Qwest. The vocals are an acquired taste, and definitely cross swords with a guy like Gino Lionessa (Korea). Admittedly, not my can of lager.

The Songs
The music only marginally makes up for that shortfall, and there are some nice moments although no real stunners. The pick of the bunch would be 'Under Fire', which does indeed stir a few embers. Apart from that, the remainder of the songs don't do anything for me unfortunately, either being too boring, or lacking any real vim and vigour to make it exciting enough.

In Summary
The band also tack on four bonus tracks at the end, and these increase the tempo a bit from those songs which have gone before. However, in summary, it's quite a disappointing release, and one which hasn't really stood the test of time. Too much ploddy material here, and not enough in the excitement and energy stakes.
