5.0 out of 5 stars AN AMERICAN PROG CLASSIC, 22 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Black Chord (Audio CD)
I bought the first Astra album The Weirding in 2010 following wonderful reviews in Classic Rock Presents Prog.At the time I thought it ok but far from the classic they hinted at.However when a friend played me The Black Chord blind a few weeks ago I was instantly hooked.This is truly the first time that I have heard an american rock band in any period make progressive rock which sounds as if it is straight from the British mould of 1971.The quality of the music is terrific throughout with brilliant heavy instrumental passages using old style analogue sounds and instruments.The music is never a pastiche of classic prog but it is definitely in homage and I cannot recommend it enough to fans of this type of music.
