Sonic Geology was my introduction to Birdsongs of the Mesozoic music, later i discovered The Iridium Controversy which i enjoy more. This is an album which was released in the late 80�s which includse 18 themes, with 3 minutes per song average, which if im not wrong are something like a compilation of their early music, at least i read that in the book of the album, maybe talking about progressive rock is difficult to find an album with so many songs

Sonic Geology is not a replacement for the original albums - each has worthwhile material that didn't made the CD cut - but two previously unreleased tracks, Miller's "Pulse Piece" and Swope's "The Common Sparrow," will interest fans.

BIRDSONGS OF THE MESOZOIC is a RIO/Avant-Prog, Progressive Rock artist from United States. For an entirely instrumental band to go out and find a bass baritone singer and do an entire album of religious covers, is something I'm sure no one expected them to do.

Sonic Geology is a compilation album by Birdsongs of the Mesozoic, released on 1988 by Rykodisc Contents.
