4 stars German project MARQUETTE is the creative vehicle for composer and musician Markus Roth. While veteran musician Achim Wierschem was involved in the first Marquette album, as of 2020 Roth now appears to be the sole driving force of this venture. "Into the Wild" is the second album to be crafted under the Marquette moniker, and was released in the summer of 2020 through German label Progressive Promotion Records.

I wouldn't be all that surprised if Marquette's second album "Into the Wild" made it into quite a few of the best of 2020 lists some people enjoy to write down in late December. The compositions are subtly quirky and challenging, but without being overtly so, the musicianship is excellent, as is also the case for mix and production. Eclectic, mainly instrumental progressive rock is the overall name of the game, and those who find music described in this manner to be interesting should give this album a spin. On a small side note, there's a very minor treat in store here for Swedish listeners, one I suspect they'll appreciate when they encounter all three instances of it.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
