Last Flight To Pluto - A Drop In The Ocean (2019)
The second album from this UK band.
The band is a quintet with a lineup of drums, keyboards, bass, guitars and vocals.
Three guest musicians added their keyboards, moog and piano.
This band released their first album some years ago without any fanfare. I am not really able to find it... but I have not really tried that hard. Then the band need an xtra keyboards and one member of the band ask a friend who then ask Rob Reed in Magenta and White Knight Records to add the keyboards. Rob Reed, a really heavy-weight in the British prog rock scene, likes the band so much he adds the keyboards and sign the band. Hence, the band get a lot more publicity.
...Something they really deserve as their music is pretty commercial.
The band is run by Alice Freya on vocals and guitars. She has some very good vocals and a personality to add to it.
Her vocals fits in very well on an album of a mix of neo-prog, prog metal, rock and pop. Yes, commercial prog indeed.
There is a lot of integrity in their music though. The music is commercial, but also honest and comes from their hearts.
There is a lot of good stuff here. Well, everything is good here. From the small details to the big songs. There is a lot to enjoy here. This album is indeed a good album and I hope the band get a bit more of a push. In that case, we will be talking about the future of British progressive rock.
