4 stars Open Silence is a first album, made,recorded and produced by members of progressive rock band Solid Ground. They come from small country, Montenegro, who is not well known by it's music, especially not by any kind of rock. This album is released in december 2013, but is only available on their bandcamp page. Album contains nine tracks,and from the first to the last song the jazzy mood sets in, with the piano and the trumpet deftly upheaving the jiving bass and drums. The songs are clear, undoubted modern form a jazz-rock mixing. Album shows its strength in a wise and light way, alterning between stronger rock almost metal passages and coming back and forth to the jazzy effects which make the instrumental, guitar driven part of the song even more interesting. This is a feeling I get around the whole album, it vanishes from a style to jump deftly into another one. Rarity that this band gives me with this album is usage of trumpets and electrifying female voice, as well as experimental electronic fusion effects. My overall conclusion is, that they are great but not yet discovered progressive rock band. Can't wait to hear more of them!
