1 stars What happened to progrock these days. As I listen to the latest effort of Airbag from Norway, I feel rather disappointed. I bought the album because of the raving reviews I read all over the www. But what did I buy? As I listen to the music that's offered on the album, a Porcupine Tree single comes to mind: Four Chords That Made A Million. Most of the songs on the album are build on three or four chords and are utterly boring to my ears. No tempo shifts, all of the songs are more or less the same. No hooks whatsoever, just straight on all across the album. What I do hear are some Pink Floyd bits (especially the guitar solo's or at least the first few notes of them) and they all must be huge fans of Marillion, Hogarth era. The lyrics only state the obvious and there really is nothing to get excited about. Even the cover art is no feast for the eye. But take a look at the rating... Lots of people calling themselves prog lovers hail about this album like it's the best that happened to them in a long time. So I have to conclude it must be me. I shouldn't expect craftsmanship, creativity or music of a high standard in a prog album anymore. Or maybe I shouldn't buy an album just because other 'prog lovers' hail about it. Just my mistake...
