Huis - Abandoned (2019)
The third album from this Canadian band.
The band was a quintet with a lineup of drums, bass, percussion, keyboards, guitars and vocals
Guest musicians provided piano, flute and vocals.
I have reviewed their first two albums for # 1 of this blog and I have really liked those two records.
I have then also reviewed the albums from another Quebec/French-Canadian band called Mystery. Why do I mention this ? The bands is not very dissimilar in music and sound.
We are talking neo-prog here. Modern neo-prog with some symphonic prog and modern rock influences.
The music is not particular bombastic. It is rather ambient and can be compared to Pink Floyd at times.
The vocals are good and the band does their best.
These seventy odd minutes is perhaps not the most exciting minutes you can get from a 2019 album. It is still a good album from a band who pushes the right buttons and takes no chances. Huis is what Huis is and they have not changed anything on this album.
Safe but good.
