3 stars 3.5 stars. Apparently I was the only one who loved MARYGOLD's debut called "The Guns Of Marygold". Funny I remember getting a message on here from the guitarist thanking me for the review and mentioning that the tone of his guitar that I liked so much and mentioned in my review was in the process of being changed. He laughed over that and the fact that fellow Italians THE WATCH were getting all of the attention and not them. Again he has such a good sense of humour. So here we are with their latest from 2017 and the guitar tone is changed and they still aren't as popular as THE WATCH haha.

I actually spun their debut last night just to see if I really did like it more than this one and the answer is an enthusiastic yes! I just connect with it more and it moves me. Yes I might need some help because the debut is a Neo-Prog album but I don't think this one is. Tough to pick a favourite song , I mean I like the album and of course the singer who always sounds like it's an effort for him to sing but he's one of the big positives for me. The female vocals I was disappointed with, I'd rather hear him. The two tracks that stand out somewhat for me are "Travel Notes On Bretagne" and the closer and longest track "Lord Of Time". A quality release but one that doesn't connect with me like the debut.
