We Came From Space - While You Were Away (2018)
The debut album from this US band.
The band is a quartet with a lineup of guitars, keyboards, bass, drums and vocals.
I believe this is the second album from this band. Their first album was the 2013 album How To Be Human. But it seems like nobody want to remember this album.
The members in We Came From Space are veterans in the local US prog rock scene. There are members of Neal Morse Band in this band.
The music on While You Were Away is very much influenced by the likes of Styx, ELO, Kansas and Supertramp. It has a great US prog feel too.
The organ sound is very good. The same goes for the vocals and the backing vocals.
We Camr From Space is not bringing anything new to the scene or the music. But their music is catchy and very good. It is a tour de force in how melodic progressive rock can sound when done by people who understand this genre. Something this band does.
This is indeed a great album and one to really enjoy. Get this album.
