Thank You Scientist - Terraformer (2019)

The third album from this US band.

The band is a seven piece big band with a lineup of drums, saxophone, trumpet, bass, guitars, violin and vocals.

This band has got a reputation for being both weird and for creating some pretty melodic, eclectic progressive rock.

I have reviewed and liked their two first albums and a review of Terraformer was therefore overdue.

Clocking in at well over eighty minutes, this album is not for the faint hearted. 

The good vocals floats over some very complex, yet melodic eclectic progressive rock. The sound and music is in the big-is-better US musical concept.

There are some weirdo interplays between violins, guitars and saxophones here. 

The themes are never long and the band and this album has enough material for at least four albums if they had chosen to develop each idea further. But they have not and the result is some really fast but epic music.

The quality is very good and this album should be an eye opener for those who has yet to discover this band.

3.5 points
