Caterpillarmen - Caterpillarmen (2011)
The second album from this Icelandic band.
The band is a quartet on this album with a lineup of guitars, keyboards, bass and drums.
Their 2010 debut album Adopt A Monkey were a good album. So I had my hopes about this album....
We are again getting some instrumental prog.... avant-garde prog as they are listed as in ProgArchives.
I am not so sure if that is what we get here.
We get some post-punk music over a given theme. This half an hour long album sounds like a jam. Not as a well thought through and well composed piece of music.
The guitars are very loose with some mistakes here and there. There are some socalled avant-garde here too. But this is still not an avant-garde album. It is more a post-punk album.
There are a few interesting details here and the attitude is OK. But this album still rank as a failure.
The end result is barely a decent album... OK, it is a decent album. But not one I would recommend.
