Iggy, without artist name it's very difficult to see what album you're actually taking about.
I did some research and found out it's The Beatles.
Are they any good? Do you recommend them?


;)




 ;D

I hadn't listened to them for a while and enjoyed revolver, Abbey Road and Rubber Soul the other day as well. A stunning band.

OK, maybe I'll check them out. ;D


NP:
Pattern-Seeking Animals - "Prehensile Tales"
8) I like this very much! It's very much in the same direction as the first album, but I think it's a bit proggier as well. Two big epics and a few longer songs in general. Nice!

Listened to bits of "The Similitude Of A Dream" and "The Great Adventure" by The Neal Morse Band, while running this morning. It works really well! Both are fantastic albums.

There are four albums that I listen to very regularly these days:
Pattern Seeking Animals - "Prehensile Tales"
Caligula's Horse - "Rise Radiant"
Fish On Friday - "Black Rain"
Once And Future Band - "Deleted Scenes"

And now, thanks to the iO Pages I add this one to the list as well:
Haunt The Woods - "Opaque"

Along with Mangala Vallis, Anubis, Jonathan Hultén and Inner Odyssey, 2020 is looking to be a fantastic year!! 8)

Nice, that one caught my interest too in iO Pages and I have swiftly ordered the album as well as their two earlier EP’s. Great stuff! In their own words:

Blending sounds from alternative, prog, folk and pop and channelling influences from the likes of Pink Floyd, Muse, Jeff Buckley and Radiohead, Haunt The Woods have crafted a distinctive sound
We stare at our screens

Yes, they're excellent! Honestly I think these guys could be very big!

Now listening to:
Infinite Wisdom - "The Blue Room"
Teunis, you should really check this out. I have a feeling that this is right up your alley!

Singer reminds me of Phil Collins and (strangely) Ray Wilson or John Mitchell (not sure why, maybe vocal lines). Musically this is pretty much in the same bag as Different Light. Probably because both bands remind me of Pendragon. Keyboards are really Neo-Prog.
I'm enjoying it very much.

Will check it out, thanks👍.

np: Leprous - Malina  *horns*

Some fans do miss the 'old' Leprous, but I adore their latest albums 'Malina' and 'Pitfalls'. You know why 😂.

Infinite Wisdom - The Blue Room

The music is okay, but the vocalist doesn't appeal to me to be honest. But will play it again, will give it some time.

Was listening to:
Infinite Wisdom - "The Blue Room"
I think it's nice. Not overwhelming, but nice for sure. 8)

Now listening to:
Lesoir - "Mosaic"

I do actually hear the Fervent Mind connection. But I like Fervent Mind better. For now anyway. (This is only my second listen.) It also reminds me of Magenta and Mostly Autumn. The song Dystopia is interesting. I really like the delay/reverb on the guitars and the choirs which give the song somewhat of an eerie feeling. And It's Never Quiet has a nice flute part. I think it's funny that this is a Dutch band, because it sounds very Scandinavian (Fervent Mind) or Slavic (Riverside, Quidam) to me.

I'll keep on listening.
