40th Art Rock Show: Places Unseen


Cirrus Bay is een Amerikaanse neoprog band uit Buckley, Washington. De groep speelt dromerige symfonische rock die doet denken aan bands als Renaissance, Bo Hansson en het oude Genesis.

Prog Archives review: “Wonderfully, romantic and pastoral music, wich reminds the listener immediately of Renaissance.
The music mostly based upon piano and acoustic guitars augmented by drums, synths, electric guitar, flute and saxophone. Singer Tai Shan is really a gifted vocalist, wich (as said) resembles Annie Haslam (Renaissance).

The music is symphonic rock as we knew it in the seventies; comparisons to Caravan, Genesis, Renaissance, Camel are easily made. The music and vocals really makes the listener dream about lush landscapes and warm summer days. The overall feel is sweet, kind, naive, dreamy and intellectual. When the soloing takes place, you know this is progressive rock, but the soft parts keeps you dreaming and relaxing.

I haven’t heard a modern release of this high standard in a long, long time. Really recommended to Renaissance-fans, but any progressive rock fan should try this one out.”

Naast Cirrus Bay met het album Places Unseen hebben we deze week: Steven Wilson (Grace For Drowning), Doracor (Transizione), Supertramp (Crime of the Century), Electric Orange (Volume 10), Leon Alvarado (The Future Left Behind) and Cosmograf (Capacitor).
