Canterbury Scene

5 stars As a relative newcomer to the elements of prog rock below the tip of the iceberg, the varied styles of the Canterbury Scene have been a real mixed bag for me - I've found some of my most loved (Caravan) and most hated (Robert Wyatt) albums and tracks.

But what is this? A 2020 album fusing the modern stylings of 21st century music, with a Canterbury Scene twist that's just jazzy enough to catch my ears but not so rambling and improvisational that it descents into chaos. This is a well thought out, relaxing but entertaining contribution, full of twists and a variety of time signatures that still seems to maintain a coherent structure.

The album of 2020 so far, and also one that encourages me to delve further into the Canterbury Scene having been put off by some of its more 'out there' offerings.

I won't be reviewing individual tracks as the album is definitely a sum of its parts. But it's 5 stars. No question.
