2 stars New Zealand has not produced many progressive rock bands. It is a kind of an oddity on our beloved planet. And I am not meaning this in a negative way.

Airlord released their one and only album in 1977. It did not become a commercial success and it is truly an obscure album. Partly because of the quality of the music and partly of the lack of commercial success.

The music here is pretty much similar to Genesis, the Peter Gabriel era. But there is also a lot of folk-rock, the 1970s era rock and blues connotations here. The music is heavier than Genesis, that's for sure. The quality is pretty OK. The title track is the strongest track with it's clear references to Peter Gabriel and Genesis. The rest of the material is pretty anonyme rock with blues and folk-rock influences.

This album does not capture my attention at all. I do not find anything really bad about it. It is just an album which falls to the bottom of the list of many, many high quality albums in this genre. 2 or 3 stars ? I give it two stars just because I am not in any way captivated by this album.

2 stars
