3 stars Sky Architect third album from 2013 A billion yesr of solitude is another great complex prog rock release in their catalogue. They describe their music like this 'music from the heart with a technical edge" - I'm agree with them, all their albums are extremply complicated but with all that all fans of the genre will be pleased for sure. As I said before they embrace the golden age of prog with similarities of Yes, maybe this time the Gentle Giant is not so obvious on this album , The Flower Kings, King Crimson aswell. This is primarly heavy prog with edgy guitars but never metalic with symphonic prog all done in complicated way, nice duelings between musicians, top drumer, what else a fully enjoyble release from this dutch band. From the opening an 18 min kick ass tune - The Curious One - really they know to handle the instruments, what a piece, what a musicianship, I think not many bands from today can play like them. Nice shifting tempos, from piano to more up tempo they melted the arrangements very well and quite intresting like on another worthy piece - Elegy Of A Solitary Giant. The rest of the pieces are aswell top, long elaborated, exactly how I like this style to be. I think Sky Architect fully desearve to be known, all thier 4 albums worth to be investigated, definetly easy listning, but those used with this aproach can easly take a listen, evry album is good to great. One of the respected bands in last almost a decade in prog rock realm. 3.5 stars for sure.
