2 stars You'll discover moonshine

A fairly unknown pop/symphonic band made their debut and is an outfit I associate more with Camel for being a calmer, gentler style of prog, but really only in that respect. The album is very warm sounding, very genuine, and easy to listen to.

The prog found here lacks the virtuoso trapeze acrobatic like skills of others (though it doesn't make this bad). The sounds are lush, serene, and fine tuned more towards aesthetic qualities. It lacks much of the pretentiousness that might be associated with other artists of the genre. The guitars are typically much more back in the mix than many others, with the keys and vocals being primarily at the forefront. Overall there isn't too much going on here, for better or worse, but for those looking for easy listening and pleasant prog this would make an excellent choice.
