51st Art Rock Show: Why The Sea Is Salt
De Britse symfonische rockband The Gift is ontstaan als muzikaal project van Mike Morton. Nieuwe muzikanten werden aangetrokken om de band te versterken: David Lloyd voor z’n subtiele vloeiende gitaarwerk, drummer Neil Hayman van Konchordat en last but not least pianist en orgelist Gabriele Baldocci.
Prog Radar review: “Let’s get straight to the point – ‘Why the Sea is Salt’ is a truly exceptional album, and deserves to propel The Gift in to the higher echelons of current British Progressive Rock Music. Simple as that – it really is that outstanding. Very few albums indeed have the potential to attain the status of a potential ‘classic’ album, which will live long in the memory like ‘Why the Sea is Salt’. This is a work which greatly appeals to the heart and mind in equal measures, and similarly beguiles and stimulates in its beauty and drama. (…)
The Gift have really stepped up a few levels with this remarkable album. They have not stretched the boundaries of music – very few artists truly do that. What they have undoubtedly done is skilfully and beautifully draw upon a variety of influences, inspirations and ideas and artfully crafted them into an imaginative and enjoyable musical experience that touches the heart and stimulates the mind. What more could one want from an album?! Do yourselves a favour and just go and buy it!”
Naast The Gift met het album Why the Sea is Salt hebben we deze week: Headspace (I Am Anonymous), RPWL (Beyond Man And Time), Gran Turismo Veloce (Di Carne, Di Anima), David Gilmour (David Gilmour) and Sigur Rós (Ágætus Byrjun).
