The Sound of Animals Fighting, a band led by Rich Balling, formerly a member of Rx Bandits, has so far released two albums. Tiger and the Duke, the better of the two in my opinion, has many shortcomings. The tracks that aren't interludes, the postlude, or the overture are truly amazing. The thing is that the interludes, postlude, and overture make up about 13 minutes of this 34 minute long album. Omit that thirteen minutes and you're left with "Tiger and the Duke EP". Those four tracks may be amazing examples of progressive rock, but the fact that 13 minutes of the CD is unneccessary noise makes The Sound of Animals Fighting lose a lot of points. The Sound of Animals Fighting is a collective of greats from many bands that join together to produce fantastic vocals, drums, and guitar. If that wasted thirteen minutes would've made the same great music as those four great tracks, "Tiger and the Duke" would be worthy of five stars, no doubt.
