Hangover Paradise - Out of Sight (2017)

The second album from this Dutch band.

Hangover Paradise is a seven piece big band with a lineup of keyboards, bass, drums, guitars and vocals.

I had the joy of reviewing their 2013 debut album Mirrors back in August 2015. You can find the review here.

That was a good album in the neo-prog genre. A genre they are still following on the follow up album Out Of Sight.

In my review of their 2013 debut album, I noted that their music was pretty soft. That is very much the case on Out Of Sight.

Their brand of neo-prog is bordering to, and sometimes crossing that border, pop-rock. The music is very soft and light-weight.

That too also because of the vocalist who has his limits. He sometimes steps over those limits and the result is jarring and vocals a crow would have been familiar with. The lyrics is a bit on the cheesy side too.

The songs on this fifty minutes long album does not have much substance and I am not impressed. Hence my rating.

2 points
