Quiet Earth - Dragons & Butterflies (2018)

The debut album from this German band.

The band is a quintet with a lineup of bass, cello, drums, percussion, keyboards, guitars and vocals.

Quiet Earth started in the 1980s, broke up and were reformed by the two main men in the band ten years ago. It still took them ten years to release this album.

I guess there is some old material on this album. There may be some new material too. I really do not know.

The music sounds like it is grounded in the 1980s neo-prog scene and sound. There is still a lot of modern sounding music here too.

We therefore get an hour with a mix of old and new style neo-prog.

The vocals are really good and so is the band. The music is epic at times and rather more earthly at other times.

It is a shame that the art of great songwriting has bypassed this album. The music is decent enough. There is no real songs that shines here.

I therefore have my reservations. But it is still a decent to good album.

2.5 points
