Lucifer Was - The Crown Of Creation (2010)

The fifth album from this Norwegian band.

Thore Engen on guitars and vocals had help from a symphony orchestra (Kristiandsand Symphony Orchestra), drums, percussion, bass, guitars, violin, mellotron, synths, organ, flute and vocals.

This album is some sort of a rock opera..... Sort of.

The inclusion of a symphony orchestra gives me that impression. Is it..... ?

Yes and no.

The music is pretty much in that vein. It poppish with this musical feel all over it. 

The good old Lucifer Was who were rocking hard somewhere between Black Sabbath and Jethro Tull is nowhere to be found on this album.

There is a lot of classic pop-rock and female vocals too. 

The music is OK'ish but not really good. I am OK with most of it but I am not impressed. I rather want that other Lucifer Was instead of this album. 

2.5 points
