Sonic Sight - Anthropology (2017)
The debut album from this Norwegian band.
Sonic Sight is a duo with a lineup of drums, guitars, bass, keyboards and vocals.
This duo consists of the neo-prog artist Finn Arild and Reidar.
And neo-prog is what we get here..... of some sort.
Take some AOR and add that to their neo-prog basis. Then you get something like this album. A fifty minutes long album.
Finn Arild does everything besides of the drums which is Reidar's domain. His vocals are good.
What is not so good is the not so muscular sound. The duo format is not adding a lot of muscles and beef to the sound. The sound is a bit thin.
The album is moving along in a pedestrian way with some keyboards, vocals and guitars on the top of the bass and drums. And that is what this is. A pedestrian album.
There is not much song writing quality here either. And the sound.... Not everything from Norway is gold. This album is not.
