4 stars I didn't know this band before but I kept seeing the name these last days. As soon as I decided to search them on Spotify I was kind of amazed by their music. Airbag don't struggle to write music, it feels that it just comes naturally. The album flows like a river, naturally.Unlike other bands that try to prove things, Airbag know that their back catalogue is strong enough to just move on with their music, evolve and progress. The strongest point of the band is the serene vocals that are occasionally reminiscent of Anathema. The voice lacks dynamics but strangely enough this doesn't result in any loss of quality. Music seems simple at first listen but after you press the repeat button, you can understand that the clever orchestrations of the songs are the main advantage of the album. You won't find any bass line when it is not essential, nor a guitar solo when the music is already busy. The Norwegian label Karisma Records that released the album has a really interesting catalogue to begin with if someone is new to modern day prog music. Airbag is definitely in their top bands and I would suggest them to anyone for a rainy afternoon drive or an alternative to alcohol when the mind is full and wants to relax.
