Barock Project - Seven Seas (2019)
The sixth album from this Italian band.
The band is a quintet with a lineup of drums, percussion, bass, guitars, synths, keyboards and vocals.
I have reviewed their first five albums in this and # 1 of this blog. Most of them in # 1 of this blog.
Barock Project is a neo-prog band and they are unashamed neo-prog too.
Their music is symphonic at most of the times. The vocals are great and their music is both elegant and full of intriguing details.
That also goes for this album. It is kind of their trademark and their reputation. Reputation who has sent them all over the world on festivals and gigs.
The music is also very melodic with some ebb and flow along the way. Between more pastoral and more heavy songs.
The album is over seventy minutes long and the band is again impressing the listener with the quality and the skills. My only gripe is the lack of any true great songs here.
That aside, this is a very good album from a very good band.
