3 stars OSTA LOVE is a studio project by Tobias Geberth and Leon Ackermann, childhood friends who have been working since 2010. This is their 3rd release for a sound oscillating between targeted riffs and arrangement of strings allowing the mind to wander over the progressive lands of Pink Floyd , Porcupine Tree, The Beatles, Steely Dan or XTC. Hang in there for an introspective journey.

A two-sided album with some energetic chorus tracks, fruity romantic catchphrase, from the Beatles in there; one with a Roger Waters-style bass and a magnificent keyboard solo in the finale that plunges into the 70's; a borderline hard rock riff ' la Led Zeppelin in another and a more enigmatic 5th track with an ethereal and psychedelic atmosphere which shows that the group has bathed well in its classic prog; titles of less than 5 minutes which prevent you from really leaving. A second more experimental side with a long take-off (5 to 8 minutes there) and almost hovering tracks, a guitar that reminds you of "Animals" and more marked psychedelic wanderings with always this feeling filled with cotton wool; the longest which starts with a marked bass and an Andalusian or even jazzy variation at times, for a moment when the progressive ether seems to invade our ears, a lot of bucolic emotion due to a well-rounded instrumental finale; the eponymous finale on an almost country acoustic melody where spleen flows freely.

Album on the passage of time and our way of remembering it with nostalgia, art-rock album, melancholy soundscape, refreshing spleen, kaleidoscopic musical journey; melodic progressive pop-rock filled with hope. Note that those who order a vinyl will receive a download link.
