Third Project. The - When Remembrance Becomes A Thing (2018)
The debut album from this Polish band.
The band is a quintet with a lineup of oud, guitars, bouzouki, bass, drums, dulcimer, keyboards, drums and vocals.
I have never heard about this band before and the cover art-work did not promise me a lot. I thought this was a RIO/avant-garde album.
That was, until I put this album on and started to listen to it.
The Third Project offers up over an hour of old style rock and progressive rock with the good old 1970s sound. It is partly hard rock and partly melodic prog.
The music is at times pretty hard with some fusion influences too. The vocals is very much in the 1970s feel and sound.
Fans of Bad Company will find a lot to like on this album. An album with a good feel and ambience.
There is no great songs here and I wish the songs were a bit more sparkling and innovative instead of just rehashing old ideas. Nevertheless, this is a pretty good album, upgraded to a good album.
