Bomber Goggles - Gyreland (2018)
The debut album from this US band.
Bomber Goggles is a trio with a lineup of keyboards, guitars, bass and vocals.
A hired hand provides drums.
The musicians in this band is true veterans in the scene and known from various US bands.
The band gives us an hour with US neo-prog based music.
Gyreland is a concept album about a piece of land out in the ocean based on waste plastic and other rubbish the characters in this album has made into a piece of dry land. Gyreland, this land is called and named.
The music is at times very conceptual. It is still melodic with short songs and some good vocals.
The album is nicely ticking over with some good US neo-prog without really coming up with some great pieces of music. That is my only gripe with this album. There is no real great music here.
Nevertheless, this is a good album and well worth checking out.
