22nd Art Rock Show: Re: Search

De band Retrospective vertegenwoordigt een jonge generatie Poolse Prog Rock bands. Hun muziek is geïnspireerd door verschillende artiesten die een breed scala aan muzikale genres bestrijken (Porcupine Tree, Tool, King Crimson).

Prog Archives Review: “It took four years from the debut for Polish Prog Metal act Retrospective to release their second, and then another five for this their third, so let’s hope that they don’t keep on this progression as I really don’t want to wait for six years until the next one! There is a real mix of melody and metal combined with rock sensibilities and passion that makes this album stand out from many others within the genre.

It is just about impossible to make a comparison with other bands, but possibly the closest would be Muse or Porcupine Tree, but even that’s not fair on either band. One of the things that makes this album is the way that they have managed to bring so much space into the compositions, so much so that there are times when the instruments seem miles apart, as opposed to all being in the same room. This allows the listener to listen to the music as well as all the minute details of what everyone is doing.

This is real ‘grown up’ progressive music, that has so much to offer anyone who enjoys the genre. Good vocals, with all the lyrics in in strong English, this is album that deserves to be given full attention, as opposed to something being played in the background. I’ve lost track of the great Polish bands I’ve heard over the years, and only hope that these guys will gain the attention they deserve, as this is a goody.”

Naast Retrospective met het album Re: Search hebben we deze week: Porcupine Tree (Stupid Dream), Muse (Origin of Symmetry), Tool (10,000 Days), Mike Oldfield (The Songs Of Distant Earth), King Crimson (Red) and About Tess (Beautiful).
