Red Bazar - Things As They Appear (2019)

The fourth album from this British band.

The band was a quartet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars, keyboards and vocals.
An extra keyboardist also helped out.

Peter Jones is also involved in this band. He has been that since the band went with vocals. He also plays in Camel, has his own band Tiger Moth Tales and work solo too... and on some other projects. Busy man and an important man these days. That is a blessing for the prog rock scene.

I really liked their previous album as it was an album full of emotions and soul.

The band has on this album retreated to a more dry version of neo-prog.

The music is very much safe, middle of the road neo-prog.

It is well crafted though and the vocals is good. Nobody can be faulted on anything on this one hour long album.

It is solid, solid music with some hints of symphonic prog and some hints of the more poppy end of the neo-prog spectrum.

The end result is a good album which will please everyone into neo-prog. I hope we will hear a lot more from this band in the future.
