Generous Men - Through The Eyes Of A Child (2019)
The second album from this Swedish band.
The band is a quintet with a lineup of keyboards, bass, guitars, drums, percussion and vocals.
Their 2013 debut album More Than Meets The Eye was a good heavy prog album with some influences from the Swedish symphonic prog rock scene.
These influences from that scene is still evident on this album. But not so much as I had wished.
The heavy prog part has been replaced by straight art rock and some generic pop rock.
The vocalist and the musician does their best on some material which sometimes blunders into teenybopper land and is far too simplified at times.
There is not much prog here and not even so much art here either.
Commercial but still elegant rock with pop influences are what I get most from this album.
When the quality is as poor as on this album, there is not much hope for the music here. Sorry guys.....
