Carpet - Secret Box (2017)
The third album from this German band.
The band was a quartet with a lineup of glockenspiel, percussion, drums, bass, guitars, harp, grand piano, organ, synth, minimoog, piano and vocals.
I reviewed their second album, the 2013 album Elysian Pleasures back in October 2016 and liked that album a lot. See my review here.
I then forgot about the band until I got their third and fourth album up for reviews. The fourth album will be reviewed next week.
It is a shame that bands like this falls below the cracks in the market as their second album is what I would call a very likeable album in the prog rock scene.
The music is a mix of neo-prog and psych rock. Mostly psych rock.
There are a lot of Porcupine Tree in their song and a lot of half-acoustic guitars too. The vocals are really good.
The songs on this forty-five minutes long album are really good. There is no outstanding tracks here but this album is indeed a pleasing experience.
This is a band and album well worth checking out.
