4 stars Swedish band A SECRET RIVER has been a unit in development for a good number of years, for many years the creative vehicle of Andreas and John, but then solidifying into a four-man strong band a few years back. Following an initial EP in 2012, they self-released their debut album "Colours of Solitude" in 2014.

The delicate blend of details that arguably can be traced back to neo-progressive rock, jazz-rock and AOR-ish rock that makes up the outer edges of the landscapes explored by A Secret River results in a fine and rather accomplished debut album. While not all that similar in style, the approach and the mainly delicate nature of the material at hand here makes me suspect that this is a band and an album that might appeal very well to those with an affection for bands such as Camel. In addition I would suspect that many with an affection for neo-progressive rock should find this CD appealing, and then in particular those who prefer music of that type to be of a frail and careful nature rather than lush and bombastic.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
