Ars Pro Vita - Cords (2020)

The third album from this band from Brazil.

The band is now reduced to Paolo Venegas on all instruments. That means synths, keyboards, piano, programming, samples and vocals.

Two sopranos added their voices to this album too.

I really liked their debut 2017 album Minor and you can find my review of that album somewhere else in this blog.

That album gave us some really pastoral symphonic prog.

Cords sees Paola Venegas take on the art of concept albums. Two concepts on one album, no less. 

There is a lot of narrations and spoken words here. There is not that much interesting music on this seventy-four minutes long album. 

The music is fragmented and it only reasonable good when the band enter Genesis like symphonic prog. A couple of the female vocals songs are also pretty good.

I find it hard to say many good things about this album. The sound is good and I have mentioned a couple of good things above.

This is a decent album and barely that.

Check it out if this sounds like your cup of tea.
