Tiles came out in the mid-90's, a time where a modern form of hard rock was starting to spring forth in the wake of the grunge explosion. At this time most bands went the commercial route and just pounded out cliched music that that has become a bit of a joke in recent years. Tiles however, did not. With their influences taken not from Nirvana but from the classic penultimate hard rock band Rush, Tiles's debut was released in 1994. The influence from the 70's hard rock circuit for Tiles is palpable, especially on their first album. These influences aren't limited to Rush- the symphonics the band uses are very reminiscent of Styx, even vocalist Paul Rarick sounds uncannily like Dennis DeYoung. It's not unwelcome to me but I will say if you have a distaste for Styx's sound, perhaps this may not suit you. The progressiveness of Tiles comes in the same package as much of the heavy prog bands on the site, loud and proud arena rock spectacles with rich lyrical content in every word spoken. Chris Heren doubles as keyboardist and guitarist; with the latter he's a bit secluded at times especially when it comes to solos. Solos on Tiles' debut aren't limited to a solo per-say, more along the lines of instrumental breaks. Mark Evans channels Neil Peart with his powerful drum-work, and guest bassist Kevin Chown is great even though he is sometimes obscured by the music.

Really a good lesser-known gem of the 90's rock circuit. I recommend it.
UMUR
"Tiles" is the self-titled debut full-length studio album by US, Detroit, Michigan, based progressive rock act Tiles. The album was released through Standing Pavement Recordings/Dream Circle in May 1994.

The music on the album is very influenced by mid nineties Rush. It´s not only due to the way the instrumental part of the music sounds but also because lead vocalist Paul Rarick has a voice that is very similar in style to the voice of Geddy Lee (Rush). The music also features a lot of hard rock elements, which can be heard in a track like "Token Pledge". The musicianship on the album is generally on a very high level and that is one of the biggest assets of the album. The quality of the material is a bit up and down and there´s little here that really makes my blood boil. It´s still an enjoyable and consistent album though.

"Tiles" is a decent debut by the band, but it´s fairly standard when talking of the quality of the sound production and the material and I´d say a 3 star (60%) rating isn´t all wrong.
