4 stars In 2008 I discovered a new band (for me) and their new album. This band was Abel Ganz and their new album was then called Shooting Albatross. I played that record A LOT back in 2008 and 2009. I kept checking on the band to know if they would soon release a new record but by 2010 I lost hopes and forgot about them.

In the late 2013/early 2014 the band started to tease fans in their social media websites and their crowdfunding campaign for their new album was a success. So here we have their self titles album Abel Ganz, released in July 8 2014.

Now, first things first, this new release has certain differences from their previous album. First their have a new line up and this change any band's music. Second their new album is a bit more folky. Granted, their previous album was also very folky, but I believe Abel Ganz (2014) is more, way more. And third and final difference, the album is long, clocking almost 73 minutes.

Musically speaking Abelz Ganz (2014) is as high as you can get. High quality musicians and excellent crafting songs. No doubt about it. But as with many long albums I feel a sense of 'filler' in many songs in the album and this is the big reason for the album not get a 5 stars from me (if not the only one).

But don't fool yourself, Abel Ganz is an amazing piece of music, specially for the weak year that was 2014 for Progressive Rock. Also, the CD has one of the most amazing artwork in the last few years. You should definitely pick the CD edition and enjoy without reservations!
