4 stars US composer and musician Johnny Unicorn is perhaps best known in the world of progressive music for being one of the musicians in the backing band of Phideaux (Xavier), although in later years he has also been visible in the US, Seattle-based, band Autumn Electric. His solo career has been ongoing for quite some time however, releasing seven studio albums from 2006 and onward. "Angels in the Oort Cloud" is the most recent of those, and was self-released in the fall of 2014.

Those with an affection for vintage-oriented, retro-style rock are spoilt for choice these days, with multiple and often different niche environments for a great many styles that originated back in the '60s and '70s. Johnny Unicorn's rather eclectic, smorgasbord take on a retro-oriented classic progressive rock blend shies away from most of these niche conventions however, and as such, this album might be seen as a good specimen to get familiar with for those who crave someone doing something innovative within this stated context.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
