Solaris - Nostradamus 2.0 Returnity (2019)

The fifth album from this Hungarian band.

Solaris is a seven piece big band on this album with a lineup of tambourine, drums, bass, guitars, flute, keyboards, percussion and vocals.
The band had some help from some guest vocalists.

This album is the continuation of the 1999 album who were called Nostradamus. That is their most known and most selling album too.

The band is pretty big in Hungary, but I am still surprised that they have returned again for another album.

We are talking symphonic prog here. Symphonic prog of the more classical music inspired sort.

The music twists and turns through frequent use of flute, vocals and keyboards. There is also some good guitars on this forty minutes plus long album.

And most of the music on this album really works. There are even a couple of very good melodies here.

This is a concept album and that comes through loud and clear. It has a lot of interesting stuff and is pretty coherent.

This is a good album well worth checking out.
