Edison's Children - The Disturbance Fields (2019)

The fourth album from this British duo.

The band is a duo with a lineup of guitars, piano, drums, keyboards, bass, strings, synths, percussion and vocals.
They had help from some other musicians who provided guitars, bass, drums and vocals.

The band is Peter Trewavas (Marillion, Transatlantic) and Eric Blackwood (Foti, Sunblister).

I have reviewed their first three albums in # 1 of this blog and the reviews can be found there.

This is another concept album from this band. A sixty-seven minutes long piece of music divided into fourteen smaller pieces.

The music is neo-prog. The music is also leaning more towards the German neo-prog sound than the British neo-prog sound.

There is a lot of drama on this album. A lot of melancholy and desperation in the music. Which is well crafted, the desperation element of this album. It is not as easy as it sounds.

The music is well crafted and is upholding the good name and reputation of this band. There is no great songs here though and that is a minor problem.

This is still an obligatory purchase for those into neo-prog as this band is one of the leading lights in this genre.
