Airbag - A Day At The Beach (2020)

The fifth album from this Norwegian band.

The band is a trio on this album with a lineup of guitars, drums, keyboards, programming and vocals.

A guest musician provided bass.

Airbag, with Bjorn Riis at the helm, has released four good albums before they released this album and has got themselves a very good reputation and a pretty big following. I am pretty fond of this band too and is loosely following them.

I have reviewed their previous four albums in this blog and # 1 of this blog. 

The band plays a mix of art-rock and neo-prog with some electronica. Radiohead meets Marillion.

The music is really laid back and elegant. The music is also slightly pastoral.

The songs are all really good and this makes this album a very pleasant listening experience and one who calls for a lot of repeat listening. 

There is no really great songs here and that is my only gripe with this album. Besides of that, the band has again delivered a solid album who does not shame them.
