4 stars 4.5 really

The Windmill from Norway is one of my fav progressive rock bands from recent years. I have a soft spot for their music since they released their first album in 2010 named To be continued.... Formed in 2001 but only in 2010 they come with thir first opus who become quikly a respected album in this genre. I love this album and everything thei offer from the music to the excellent art work made by the wife of the keybordist Kirsten K. Viita, really excelltnt work that goes hand in hand with the music. Now, the music is more then great, with lots of intresting arrangements, with each musician shining on their instruments. Opening with the catchy instrumental Cinnamon, what a great opener for sure, keyboards and guitar buit together in a perfect unit. Follow The colour of season, a mid tempo piece with nice melodic passages and all the ingredients to be a fairly solid tune, I like a lot the vocal parts. A day in hero's life is an epic clocking around 22 min of sheer briliancy moments, rich arrangements with excellent songwritting. Great changes in tempo and top notch musicianship Strong are the flute moments who gives a certain vintage atmophere overall. Solid track. The album is well balanced going from mid tempo passages to more up tempo in nice skilfull manner, from melodic lines to more heavy prog , passages thet flows very well and with substance. All pieces are excellent, not a weak or boring moments here. To be continued.. is to me one of the better examples how must sound a good solid prog rock album these days. Love it from the first spin. Recommended for sure, The Windmill is one of the best exponets in prog rock relam in last years. 4,5 stars without hesitation.
