Dragonfly - Dragonfly (1982)
The one and only album from this band from Switzerland.
The band was a sextet with a lineup of bass, percussion, drums, keyboards, guitars and vocals.
This band came, released this album and then vanished again. The reason may be the year and the decade this album was released in. 1982 and the bad 1980s.
Those were the dark days of the prog rock scene.
The album is listed as symphonic prog in ProgArchives. That is not to say that this is a traditional symphonic prog album.
This album has everything from some Yes copycats to more pop and rock in the vein of the nasty 1980s. There are some attempts to sound like Supertramp and there is also some strong Grobshnitt influences here.
There is a lot of stuff on this forty minutes long album. It is not a particular coherent piece of music as the band is all over the place.
The result is merely a decent album..... just about. It is not an album worth checking out.
