Old crowd to make an old sound
on 28 March 2015
British Prog-rock for sure, following in the steps of all the greats, Genisis, Tull, Barclay James Harvest etc. This is not to mean more of the same, but come on guys has this not been done to death already. Certainly it does not fall short of good, if not great songs, but has a slight style of its own. If you have never grown out of that period of rocks history, then this will give you something new to think music of this gender has still more to say.
There is plenty of great musicianship found within this release that can help you digest the content easier. The whole album flows with confidence in the certainty of coming to its conclusion. I do like this but find it does grind on the past too much to entertain one. Just to point to this fact is the people involved are from said times, such as Theers Van Leer, Steve Hackett and the like. All the songs go on forever as is the like of this music, the only added benefit is the music is a little more folk influenced and gentle.
