Can This Even Be Called Music? His last album, Crux, was already sweet and tasty, but this new one – as you can taste with the single “The Villi People” – is on a whole new level. All throughout the rather contemplative album, you’re thrown music in the styles of classical, jazz, and progressive rock. It’s an astonishing atmospheric progressive rock album that I totally recommend!

Setting a Course for Tomorrow is the next album in the continuum of Patrick Healy's celestial progressive rock macroverse, melding dark matter melodies with an ethereal atmosphere, creating a binary that binds vintage prog with contemporary fusion.

A nebula of influence that clusters the cerebral candor of Yes, the quirky aura of Allan Holdsworth, and the aggressive tonal density of John Coltrane, giving rise to a new landscape that Healy's cosmic symphony can call home.
