Knight Area - Under A New Sign (2007)

The second album from this Dutch band.

The band was a seven pieces big band with a lineup of drums, percussion, guitars, bass, keyboards, flute and vocals.

Two guest musicians provided cello and guitars.

I reviewed their 2014 album Hyperdrive some years ago and quite liked that. After I reviewed that album, I got three more Knight Area albums and I am reviewing them this winter. Hopefully this year.

Knight Area is a classic neo-prog and whose music is classic, standard neo-prog. 

The music is not overly aggressive or heavy. 

It is still pretty epic, but mid-paced and a bit soft too.

The sound is based on the good vocals, guitars and keyboards. The sound is electric and not so much acoustic.

There is nothing I can fault this album on. It is a solid, good album. A bit unspectacular too, but still a good album.

A bit more spice and better songs would have been nice. That is not happening here, though. Nevertheless.......

3 points
