For fans of Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree and Rush. CD $10.95
Mixed by Terry Brown (Rush producer)Currently, TILES is commemorating their 20th anniversary with their first official live recordings that also serve as career retrospectives. The first installment of "Off the Floor" was released September 2012 while "Off the Floor 2" is scheduled for release April 1, 2014. TILES delivers "live in the studio" performances offering new perspectives on standout tracks from each of the band's five studio recordings. Complete with several new interludes and adventurous extended jams, "Off the Floor" gives the listener more than a carbon copy of the studio versions with noted producer Terry Brown (Rush) mixing the music with a powerful organic sound. "Off the Floor volumes 1 & 2" provide a fresh look at some old songs, add a few new things, and give TILES fans something to tide them over until the next studio release "Other Arrangements" appears. "Off the Floor 2" also includes a bonus disc of selected songs from the band's 2005 appearance at ROSfest.
