5 stars Atlas is another obscure progressive rock band from Sweden. They represent the jazzy trend in symphonic prog rock in the close of the seventies and they released only one album, an instrumental masterpiece - Blå Vardag.

The music on this album is driven mainly by keyboards (organ, piano, clavinet, mellotron, Rhodes, mini-moog) played by two very good keyboardists - Björn Ekbom and Erik Björn Nielsen The guitar is present to. It role is less significant, but still very important and noticeable. The rythm section is also very good and do its part properly.

The sound of the group is very complex, rich, juicy and breezy, with jazzy grove. They managed easiness in complex and melodic arrangements.

Blå Vardag would satisfy all the lovers of athmosferic, complex and melodic symphonic rock with some jazzy touch.


Highly recommend!!!
