Autumn Electric - Star Being Earth Child (2015)

The fifth and so far last album from this US band.

The band is a quintet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars, saxophones, melodica, flute, keyboards, piano and vocals.

The band had by now established themselves in the more poppy progressive and art rock genre. There is also a lot of youthful college rock in their music.

Star Being Earth Child sees the band take a slightly new direction. Slightly is the word here. There is no evolution and no revolution here.

The band has moved towards symphonic prog influenced neo-prog. Something that surprised me a lot during the first listening sessions of this album.

The music is still pretty pastoral and acoustic. But a lot of early to mid era Genesis comes up on this album.

There is also some Edit Piaff and chanson here too.

The result is a good one hour long album where the musicians and the vocalist is delivering a good job.

Check out this album.
