5 stars IOEarth is a cross-forward rock band from Birmingham, England, headed by Dave Cureton and Adam Gough. Founded in 2004. Early by Frank Zappa, but they also blend modern pop music and classical music, as well as jazz. As more members join these years, their music is also enriched, such as the integration of world music, and even some soundtrack, as well as adding gorgeous female voice, orchestra, metal music and so on. The new album "Solitude" is such a diverse result, the opening theme song hidden in the popular psychedelic wind heavy metal, and the female voice with the strings complement each other. However, the soul of this band is two original guitar, so in later tracks they devoted intense, mesmerizing solo performance. With the deepening of the album, we can feel that the orchestral music that constantly sounded behind is actually very good for other musical instruments. It is not isolated and plays a leading and sublimated role. Their efforts to combine classicality and modernity deserve Sure, and indeed impressive, coupled with a smart and crazy keyboard and Rosanna Lefevre mature female interpretation, their crossover music can be described as "perfect"! The album's eight songs are basically about ten minutes long, I tried to pick the best of the two, but found that they are almost all good enough to give the perfect score, and no one below the average. This is what a strong band and talent ah, can produce years of first-class album (09,12,15 also made three albums, are 90 minutes long masterpiece, and received a praise!) After listening to this new post, I undoubtedly become a fan of the band, can not wait to listen to their past album. So after listening, I could give a four-and-a-half-half high score (even to five stars, still more to judge, but in short I was conquered), a strong contender for the top ten albums this year and even the top three ! Is a love of avant-garde, including symphony, metal and classical music friends will listen to the masterpiece!
