5 stars For those of us who were around in the 1970's, growing up listening to progressive rock music, among the plethora of bands,were a small group of artists emanating from the Canterbury area of England. Collectively,these bands and artists were labelled as being part of the Canterbury scene or sound.

Two of these bands in particular, namely Hatfield and the North, and a few years later Bruford, were at the forefront at producing some innovative music and pushing the boundaries in terms of compositions and sounds. Fans of the Canterbury scene, have been largely starved, in terms of new artists producing quality material, until now that is.

The year 2020, sees the emergence of a new and exiting band , namely ZOPP.

The central figure of the group, Ryan Stevenson has referenced the past, but more importantly, has updated the Canterbury sound to include influences from other styles of music including classical elements. In addition to writing and co producing the album, he is also credited for playing keyboards, guitar and bass, with his co partner Andrea Moneta from Italian prog band Leviathon , providing the drums and percussion.

There are nine excellent pieces of music on this album, carefully crafted,with intricate layer's that reward the listener with repeated visits.

For prog rock fans ,and in particular for those people who loved those instrumental masterpieces from the aforementioned bands, then this album will undoubtedly give you hours of enjoyment.

Go on, indulge yourself.
