Værket - Young Again (2018)
The second album from this Danish band.
The band is a sextet with a lineup of flute, trumpet, guitars, bass, drums, keyboards and vocals.
I do not know anything about this band other that they are included in ProgArchives and listed as an Eclectic Prog band. That is all I needed to know before purchasing this album.
And eclectic prog it is......
The trumpet and some of the music reminds me about Mexican tijuana. Add in some gloomy rock, folk rock and psych too and you get this album.
The trumpet is everywhere and is supported by flutes, keys and guitars.
The vocals too comes in and adds to the strange music here.
Forty minutes of strange music, that is.
But it works, the music here. Some of the music here is really good and some is not that good. It is an interesting album indeed.
I am not won over by the quality and will not get their debut album. But this band has potential and they offers up something different. Check them out.
