Autumn Whispers - Cry of Dereliction Vol.II (2013)
The second album from this Norway based band.
The band was a sextet with a lineup of guitars, bass, drums, violins, glockenspiel, keyboards and vocals.
The band had help from an extra vocalist, guitarist and cimbalom player.
I was not really that impressed by their debut album Cry Of Dereliction Vol I from 2012. You can read my review here.
Autumn Whispers is a band that is based in Norway, but has a multi-national membership. Which is great.
That also means they have taken with them a lot of influences into this album. These influences has been fused into the music on this one hour long album.
The music is basically art-rock with a lot of Pink Floyd, The Beatles and David Bowie influences. Added is also some eclectic rock from Greece and Norway. But the overriding influence is modern rock and pop music.
This is art-rock in other words.
A lot of the music is really good. It is indeed a cosy album which is largely performed with acoustic guitars, keyboards and vocals. There are also some Pink Floyd like guitar solos here too.
I am not really won over by this album. It is still a (barely) good album and one to check out. Go so forth....
