Orion - Orion 2.0: Virtual Human (2019)

The fifth album from this French band.

The band is a quintet with a lineup of drums, keyboards, bass, piano, guitars and vocals.
Two guest musicians does extra guitar and keyboards solos.

The band debuted back in 1979, but did not really got going before 2013 with their second album. Three more albums, including their new one, has followed after that.

I have reviewed their previous four albums in this blog and in # 1 of this blog.

The band has always been a French symphonic prog band and they remain that on this album too.... although with some twists.

There are some other pop, rock and jazz influences on this album. There is also some funk influences. Some of the music is actually very funky. Very Supertramp at times.

The band still delivers some good French symphonic prog although the music is pretty laid-back at times.

This is not their best album. Nevertheless it deliver some good music and very much upholds the band's good name and reputation.

3 points
