Pure Reason Revolution - Eupnea (2020)
The fourth album from this English band.
The band was a duo on this album with a lineup of keyboards, guitars, bass and vocals.
A guest musician did the drums.
I have no idea and no excuse for why not getting their first three albums. The band split up in 2011 and I got the impression they were doing poppy commercial neo-prog. It is not a genre I was fond of back in those days.
Their third album was released back in 2010 too. But still, no excuse.
The music is indeed neo-prog. But not as poppy and commercial as I thought it would be.
The music is indeed melodic. It also has a lot of symphonic prog elements and is pretty symphonic, indeed. There are also some heavy guitars and some good female vocals here.
There is a lot of quality here and this album is a bit of revelation for me. I must get their first three albums.....
This is a good album indeed and I hope their comeback means more albums. This is a talented band with a very good sound.
