Jadis - See Right Through You (2012)
The eight album from this British band.
The band was a quartet with a lineup of drums, bass, keyboards, guitars and vocals.
John Jowitt and Martin Orford had left the band and a new vocalist and a new keyboardist had replaced them.
Their previous album Photoplay was a pretty dire album, the normal high standards of Jadis taking into account, and I did not have any great hopes for this album. It seemed like the band was coming to an end. Maybe it has as the band has only released one album after this album.
We are still somewhere in the neo-prog land here. But with some changes.
There is a lot of indie rock and some standard pop-rock on this album too.
The core and the best music here is still neo-prog, though. There is indeed some good, old Jadis on this album.
There is not enough of that on this album though. The music is mostly leading nowhere.
This is a decent to good album where the song writing is not up to standard, I am afraid.
