Balloon biography
Hailing from the town of Alkmaar in the northern part of The Netherlands, BALLOON are basically a quartet, augmented by guitarist Robin Versteegh (who does not take part in the compositional process). Additional musicians join the band for live performances. They describe their music as creating "a link between Pink Floyd and Rammstein".

Their debut album, "Motivation", was originally self-released in 2007. Then, in the summer of 2008, Balloon were signed by Musea, which re-released the album and made it available to a wider audience.

Raffaella Berry (Raff) - September 2009

In March 2011, Paul GLANDORF on vocals (A DAY'S WORK)joined the band. The original vocalist Hans BAAIJ is still there giving the synths all they deserve while backing Paul. The band is working on new material since then.

Balloon Heavy Prog

Review by Marty McFly
Special Collaborator Errors and Omissions Team

3 stars With verging into neo-psychedelic style (hello "Quantum Fantay") and almost without vocals, Netherlands are proving themselves as one of the most prolific (and interesting) musical country with yet another (great) release.

More or less great, because music here depends mostly on longer compositions and that can do a lot of harm in hands of not so skilled maker. There are two ways how I understand this album, first one is technical skills, or "what I should hear". The second one is what I feel, or "how I actually like it". I know that I should hear masterpiece, but I can't hear it here. There's not passion in this for me, there's just cold, but skilled musicianship. This helps a lot. It's also heavy in a way how Porcupine Tree is Heavy Prog, because of guitars. Of course, you can compare this with early PT records, but this has been done many times with countless Heavy bands, so no point in doing it over and over again.

With song Nowhere, I'm starting to be pleased again. Not that I wasn't before, but I lack "heart" element here. Technicality isn't always enough. Strange, that instrumental song sounds here so distant, unreachable, while sung ones are less mysterious. And that's probably it, this album is different and so

with warning, that (also) different approach is needed to enjoy this fully.

Thanks to raff for the artist addition.
