And finally (probably) on my catch up from the last few days this one from US / Norway. I’ve enjoyed this one, unchallenging neo prog.

Yeah, really good.
Although I have a wee problem with the high frequencies....
to much treable for my ears!
but that is a minor complaint as the whole is really good!

Ring Van Mobius.... think ELP crossed with VDGG and early KC. Very robust stuff from Norway. They’re on Spotify.
It was raining when we drove up the two-lane highway through the long tunnel of trees that led into the black district on the south end of St. Martinville.

The organ sounds like Keith Emerson and the general squawking just like VDGG.
You're right Mike.
Horrible.
But I do quite like it

I was wondering where the Crimson comparison fit in - then the Mellotron arrived..

Big Big Train’s new album released yesterday.

Every bit as good as you’d hope.

Image


5 star review from the Daily Express.

Grand doesn’t even begin to describe the epic proportions of this magnificent opus. On a rollicking roll of releases with 2017’s Grimspound and The Second Brightest Star, BBT continues full steam ahead to the max on Grand Tour.

In fact, progressive music is experiencing quite a renaissance itself with perennial Prog Mag Award winners Big Big Train being at the very heart of this revitalised genre. Moving their thematic musings away from the English landscape and folklore, Grand Tour draws its inspiration from 17/18th-century customs of well to do aristos travelling the globe to experience the wondrous worlds of science and art to return home renaissance wise.

Alive sets the scene with a racy, pulsating current of keyboards, guitar motifs and deep bass pedals. This leads into The Florentine with its textured weave of instrumentation and David Longdon’s raspish vocals revealing a paean to the master: Leonardo Da Vinci.

Brass and exquisite strings also play an integral role on this expansive recording as on Roman Stone and the head-expanding Pantheon, reminiscent of a John Tams era Home Service/Genesis hybrid.

With its blend of harmony vocals reminding of Queen on the majestic Ariel and the beautiful musical melodies of Voyager and Homesong, it’s the absorbing lyrical concept which enables BBT to let the music do all of the talking.
