Grand Tour - Clocks That Tick (2019)

The second album from this band from Scotland.

The band is a quintet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars, keyboards and vocals.

Their 2015 debut album Heavy On The Beach showcased some good neo-prog in the vein of Abel Ganz and Comedy Of Errors.

The band has not deviated from this formula on Clocks That Tick.

Their take on neo-prog is still the 1980s and 1990s brand of neo-prog. Abel Ganz and Pendragon springs to mind.

The music is not particular muscular. The vocals is a bit thin.... but also very good. Joe Cairney's vocals is what they are and a great throwback to the neo-prog in the 1980s and 1990s. 

And so is the guitars too.

The songs are not as great as on Heavy On The Beach. I had wished a bit of an improvement on that album.

Nevertheless, this is a good album.
