Swan Chorus. The - The Swan Chorus (2018)

The debut album from this British band.

The Swan Chorus is a quintet with a lineup of percussion, drums, bass, synths, guitars, organ and vocals.

This band is formed by members of Plenty, Nerve Toy Trio and the Genesis tribute band Mama. My review of the Plenty album can be found here.

The vocalist in The Swan Chorus also doubles up as a Phil Collins copycat in the Genesis tribute band Mama. Which says a lot. Fans of Phil Collins vocals will love this album.

The music on this one hour long album is somewhere between the Genesis albums Duke and Invisible Touch. That is some prog with a lot of Tamla Motown soul and some commercial rock too.

The musicians knows what they do. The vocals are really good.

The music is really slick though and the songs is not really that good. I am getting a lot of Phil Collins and the latter days Genesis vibes here. That is my takeaway from this album.

And that is not the type of music I really appreciate. In particular when the music is not good. Hence the rating.

2.5 points
