Review by progrules
3 stars I remember the discussion I had with an Admin of our site about this band several years ago about their contingent inclusion. He said he felt the band was quite similar to It Bites but less progressive so it was "no" at that point. And quite frankly I couldn't disagree with that. Problem was that from other sources (on internet and samplers) Summer Indoors was indicated as some sort of prog rock or at least very close to that. So I felt that if they would ever get added to the list on PA it would be in prog related but in the end they are placed in crossover...

Anyway, at least I'm able to review their album ultimately so here we go. The opener Placebo is immediately the most progressive track I believe and probably the best. A good composition it is and a good example of a crossover sort of song (so right in between prog and pop). Funny enough the rest of the songs are leaning more towards pop which made me agree with the admins decision back then. Still the inclusion can be defended since PA wants to add every band that made at least one progressive track in their history.

Summer Indoors produces "pop plus" so to speak meaning that it's pop music with a progressive flavor, more inventive and complex than most pop usually is. I feel the band could be content about their appearance here because they are a true borderline case. If you like bands like that, go for this Songs in the Key of H. Nice prog related stuff without being excellent at any point. From the other album There's Orangie I only know their song Peaktime Boulevard because it appeared on a SI sampler and that sounded pretty progressive as well so the band knows what prog is about obviously but decided to go for the very accessible road most of the time. If you're getting curious go for their albums I'd say but don't expect too much of it. 2,75 *.
