TumbleTown - Never Too Late (2018)

The second album from this Dutch band.

The band was a trio with a lineup of guitars, keyboards, harmonica, bass, piano, organ and vocals.
A guest musician did the drums.

I was not overly impressed by their debut album. See my review somewhere else in this blog.

The band returned again for another attempt on neo-prog.

Yes, we are in neo-prog land again. A full hour worth of songs. The neo-prog has got some influences of folk rock this time and some rock too.

The music is a mix of muscular and melodic neo-prog. Sometimes, it is bordering to progressive metal. But there is less of it this time around.

TumbleTown is not re-inventing the neo-prog genre here. They are not adding anything new.

Instead of being pioneers, they are giving us an hour worth of melodic, muscular honest neo-prog. Neo-prog which will go down well with symphonic prog fans too.

The vocals are good and the band does their best. Even the sound is good here. And so is the songs.

This is a good album and it is well worth checking out.
