Formed around the husband-and-wife team of Leslie and Brent Walker, DC2D, as they are apparently known, came together out of a New-Wave Top 40 outfit, and combine the band with full time jobs. With the sound described as " vocals woven with synthetic and organic textures," several things become immediately apparent. Leslie's lead vocals sound eerily like Petra's John Schlitt in a wobbly kind of way (for which doubtless neither of these two will thank me); also I think our definitions of "progressive rock" must be in conflict, as the sound is more reminiscent to me of '80s synth wizards Lams and Schreiner, and I must admit that I struggle to identify the progressive elements here. Even the 9/11 influenced "Dust (911)" which has become something of a landmark piece for DC2D, with radio airplay in several places, really doesn't do anything to move me at all, which is a real shame.
