Comedy Of Errors - House Of The Mind (2017)


The fourth album from this Glaswegian, Scottish band.

Comedy Of Errors was a sextet on this album with a lineup of guitars, bass, drums, keyboards and vocals.

I reviewed their 2015 album Spirit earlier this month and liked that album a lot. A very good album indeed.
I have previously reviewed their 2011 debut album Disobey here and the follow up, the 2013 album Fanfare & Fantasy here.

Comedy Of Errors plays around with the neo-prog genre. They started back in 1984 but did not release any substantial albums before 2011.

Their music is pretty much symphonic neo-prog with a lot of long songs and concepts. Their music and attitude is very much in the 1970s symphonic prog era. That is not making them a best selling band. But they are still regarded as one of the better prog rock bands in today's scene.

The music here is symphonic with a dense soundscape. The music is not particular hard. Neither is it soft and commercial. The vocals are very good and so is the music too. My only gripe is the lack of a great song here on this fifty minutes long album (forty minutes if you got the LP). I like this band and their music.

3.5 points
