5 stars Finally had the chance to listen to "Wanderlust", the newest album by Little Atlas. Haven't heard their previous efforts, so it was at the same time my introduction to the band. There is one word that immediately comes to mind: geniality! When an artist or a band can combine high-quality technical skills, a crystal clear production, complexity and at the same time catchy melodies, then i think words like excellent and fantastic fall short.

To describe the music is even more difficult. The combination of catchy choruses and lenghty instumental passages make me think immediately of Manfred Mann's Earth Band. The heavy use of hammond (and on some tracks mellotron) combined with the modern sound reminds me of early Spock's Beard. Far echoes of Genesis, Yes, Kansas, Gentle Giant, Flower Kings and the more obscure German band Rachel's Birthday ... really too much to mention. But don't expect anything sounding like aforementioned bands, cause Little Atlas has a unique kind of symphonic prog, mixing influences of all era's of prog. In fact, i think in the future they'll become a reference on their own.

Check them out!
