4 stars Norwegian project PYMLICO is the creative vehicle of composer and musician Arild Bröter, which started out back in 2009 and with the initial album released two years later. So far Bröter has recorded three studio albums under this moniker. "Guiding Light" is the most recent of these, and was released through his own label Spider House in 2014.

Pymlico's third studio album is one that covers quite a lot of different ground, and appears to hone in on contemporary progressive rock just as much as on the vintage varieties of this type of music. Compelling melodies and distinct, well-developed moods and atmospheres are key features throughout, and the CD is, as expected these days, I guess, well produced and mixed as well. An album for those who enjoy progressive rock when it is instrumental and varied, a key audience might be those that find as much pleasure in listening to Jan Garbarek at his most accessible as they do when they pop in a CD by Porcupine Tree in their CD player.
