5th Art Rock Show: Detachment

De Italiaanse progband Barock Project pakt uit met een kundige mix met elementen als klassieke rock, jazz, pop, metal en zoals de bandnaam al doet vermoeden, barok. De groep is het geesteskindje van de uitermate virtuoze toetsenist Luca Zabbini, de man die z’n kunde constant koppelt aan een grote dosis smaak.

Prog Archives review: “Happy to see Barock Project have progressed but still managed to stay true to their unique style. The new album sounds more modern, more diverse, more varied, and even at times heavier than the previous outputs. It’s a flawless musical delivery in composition, execution and production. The album works when paying undivided attention to its many details, but it also works quite well in the background (I was cooking dinner when I gave it the first spin) providing a very pleasant and uplifting soundtrack.

For those amongst you who are not yet familiar with this Band, I struggle like on their preceding albums to draw comparisons to other bands. Barock Project somehow have defined their own genre of very melodic and uplifting ‘symphonic-neo-barock-retro-folk-crossover Prog’ 😉 Again like on the last album ‘Skyline’, Jethro Tull here and there springs to mind, but only momentarily. If I have to come up with another comparison, I am sometimes reminded of Big Big Train but with much more oomph, dynamic and variation.”
