Wobbler - From Silence To Somewhere (2017)

The fourth album from this Norwegian band.

The band was a quartet on this album with a lineup of various keyboards and organs, guitars, bass, drums, woodwinds, glockenspiel, mellotron, minimoog and vocals.
Two other musicians provided flute and crumhorn.

This album was voted the best prog rock album last year in ProgArchives and numerous other magazines. The band has been playing triumphant gigs around Europe and has established themselves as the best Norwegian prog rock band this year.

This album is a triumphant journey in a melancholic Scandinavian symphonic prog landscape. There are lots of subtle folk rock hints here and a lot of Kaipa influences.

But Wobbler is Wobbler. They have their own sound, visions and music.

Yes, the band has fused Swedish and Norwegian symphonic prog on this album. And that is a good thing. There is also a lot of eclectic prog on this album too.

The music is great throughout this album. An album which sneaks up on the listener and then adds itself to the listener as a small and a very welcome part of it's personality.

Yes, this is a great album and a must have addition to any symphonic prog collection.

4 points
