5 stars 2017 turned out to be great prog-year.

After all the violence of progmetal and overabundance of neoprog and the tsunami of Porcupine Tree/Radiohead-wannabes it's refreshing to hear bands focus on the more instrumental, folky, jazzy, medieval, symphonic side of progrock.

I knew Wobbler of their former release, and that one was already dear to me. Now unto this new release;

Four long tracks wich sound organic and not once too pretentious. The instrumentation is tastefull, the dynamics are just right. Heavy parts and softer parts seemlessly flowing into one another.

The vocals are just right aswell. Reminds me of Anekdoten, but Wobbler is less heavy and more symphonic. I love the flute (finally the flute is back in symphonic rock) and the mellotron, wich gives it that special 70's vibe.

The music harks back to the days of Genesis, Gentle Giant (victorian vocal-parts), Camel (flute), King Crimson (mellotron) and has a kind of canterbury-feel to it.

This record is strongly recommended to anyone who wants to step in a timemachine an go back to the years of 1970-1974.

Kingsnake | 5/5 |
