Duncan Mackay has not released many albums since his debut in 1974, five all in all to be precise. The present album, released only last year, is his latest to date. This excellent, keyboard driven album is a collaboration with Georg Voros, the latter being credited for the drums. Mackay himself plays a plethora of keyboard instruments, but who sings and plays the other instruments is unknown. There are some vocals, bass guitar, and a tiny bit of acoustic guitar at some point.

I discovered Duncan Mackay not long ago, after some recent exposure here in the reviews feed. I quickly searched out his debut album Chimera, which I enjoyed a lot, followed by his other albums. The Bletchley Park Project is a very strong album, and the best place to continue after the equally excellent Chimera. I have been playing this album a whole lot for weeks now.

Mackay is an excellent keyboard player, often compared to the amazing Keith Emerson. But Mackay has his own style. He is definitely overlooked, and it is sad to see that this album has yet to reach the audience it deserves. If you like keyboard-driven progressive Rock, you will not be disappointed.

Highly recommended!
