4 stars Gunfly is a project from former Beardfish vocalist and keyboard player Rikard Sj÷blom and he released five studio albums so far. With On Her Journey To The Sun from 2017 and Friendship from 2018 he really delivered great prog rock. Alone Together is the latest release from Gunfly and it's a great album. Traveler is a first song and it represents the continuance of great over 10 minute prog epics written by Rikard Sj÷blom. This song delivers a great modern sounding progressive rock which is mostly dominated by great Hammond and keyboard, great melodic bass and guitars, end of the song brings us a really great instrumental session with elements of blues and classic sound of heavy prog. Happy Somewhere in Between is a really happy sounding song with a fantastic opening riff and if this was a normal world it would be a radio hit all over. Alone Together starts with a fantastic melodic guitar solo and it takes us to a really great prog rocker if you missed Beardfish you will feel the presence of their trademark sound but with a little twist. On the Shoulders of Giants is a grand almost 15 minute song and it sums up the album fantastically with all of the elements that make Rikard Sj÷blom's song writing awesome. If you love Beardfish, classic sounding but filled with modern takes prog with great hard rock organ and guitar you are in the right place.
