4 stars The second offer of this excellent band but sadly quite unknown is comming after almost 10 years gap and is named Creation of the humanoids released in 2014. Well, I liked a lot the debut, this follow up is no less top notch. This is the type of prog I can listen every day, dynamic compositions, intelligent arrangements, elegant interplays between musicians, Moog and mellotron having an important role, but aswell the rest of the instruments are not staying aside, nice violin I must add. What I like more on this band then on other bands of same aproach of prog, is the atmosphere on all pieces , absolutely no boring moments , and with every listen I'm discovering more and more hidden musical treasures. Therea re lots of changes in tempo, with the highlight the title track clocking near 20 min, is pure delight, outstanding musicianship with the driving force of Bill Noland behind, his omnipresent bass . All pieces are great to excellent. I forget to mention the album is all instrumental , the title of this one is taken from a 1962 sci-fi of the same name. All in all a very worthy release, to me Eccentric Orbit is one of the most intresting prog bands around, their only two albums released so far demostrates talent, elegant aproch of the music and intelligent passages. Absolutly excellent art work and overall digipak package. Creation of the humanoids desearve from me without hesitation 4 stars, recommended, an instrumental prog album not to be missed.
