3 stars Turbulence?

If you happen to know the live concert DVD Turbulence released in 2006 (or, if you have seen the band live recently?), several of the tracks on this new studio album will be familiar to you. The title track, Mountains Of Anglia, Prayer, and the 16 minute plus Calm Before The Storm were all included on the Turbulence DVD (but ironically not the track called Turbulence itself). As such, more than half of the music on this album is at least six years old. But during this time little or nothing has happened to these songs or to the sound of the band in general. Like on the previous Science Of Coincidence from 1998, the songs are lush and melodic and filled with modern keyboard and clean, soaring lead guitar. I again find this music very pleasant and enjoyable, but somewhat lightweight.

Even if I think that Tracy Hitchings is a fantastic vocalist, I much prefer the Damian Wilson-era of Landmarq. The excellent debut album Solitary Witness remains my favourite Landmarq album and nothing they did after that has impressed me. There is no denying that these people are very talented musicians, and this is certainly another good Landmarq album, but again I fail to be impressed. As I said in my review of Science Of Coincidence, anyone looking for something dark or heavy should definitely look elsewhere.

Long overdue, Entertaining Angels will please fans of the band and many fans of the lighter side of Prog
