Fish On Friday - Quiet Life (2017)
The fourth album from this band from Belgium.
Fish On Friday is a quintet with a lineup of chapman stick, keyboards, bass, guitars, drums, percussion and vocals.
The band has got help from Theo Travis on saxophone and flute. Alan Parsons and some others provides extra vocals.
Fish On Friday is one of the better bands coming out of Europe..... well, this planet during the last decade. I reviewed their 2012 album Airborne for # 1 of this blog back in December 2012 and you can find my review here.
Fish On Friday is a neo-prog band. They are pretty close to both Pink Floyd and Marillion in their sound and music. There are also a lot of indie pop sensibilities here too.
Their music is very airy and ambient. There is not much tech prog here. If any, that is. The soundscape is very open.
There are both male and female lead vocals here. The other musicians does an OK job.
This music is not particular challenging. But this is still a good one hour long album who does not enthuse or offend me. It is a good album and one I like. It lives up to this band's good reputation.
