Accidentals and dominants

Gotta Hear ’em All blog has a rather technical review of Nothing at All from the new album Whoosh. If you enjoy reading about E – D# – C# – B progressions and dominant tonic motions, you’ll enjoy this.

It goes something like this:

Don Airey’s, on the other hand, is pretty easy to peg as primarily D Major, helped along by Roger Glover’s consistent bass tone (and sadly, besides this solo, Glover is once again the least audible member of the group. My apologies to Mr. Glover that I say little about him…again).

Thanks to Attila for the info.
