Dice - Chance for the Link of a Chain (2017)
The 19th album from this German band.
Dice was a quartet on this album with a lineup of keyboards, guitars, bass, drums and English vocals.
I very much liked their 2016 album X Is Double Two On The Dice Map. Good psychedelic rock. You can read my review here.
Dice was a vibrant space and psychelic prog band many years ago. These days, they have withdrawn to a more safe distance from outer space and the psychedelia thing.
...Something this album proves.
The music on this one hour long album still has some pshychedelia. But most of the music is pop-rock. And that with some country'n'western influences their previous albums did not have.
Christian Nove's vocals has also gone downhill during the last couple of albums. They are directly pretty bad on this album. I think it is about time to hand over the microphone to a new generation on the next album. Or let the backing singer Ramona Nove do the lead vocals.
The songs here are not interesting at all. Neither are they any good. This is not a bad album. It is just a decent album and just that.
