Evolve IV - Decadent Light
(ProgRock Records PRR600)
The band is collaboration between US based Michael Eager (Guitar, Vocals) and UK based Peter Matuchniak (Keyboards, Guitar). The CD features 11 tracks in 50 minutes. Everyone in the band gets to show off with cool bass lines, nice guitar soloing, intense drumming (when required), etc. I have to say this CD was not really to my tastes. I can really appreciate the song writing skills and playing of the musicians but it just comes across a bit like melodic Phish playing prog for the over 50’s crowd, just a bit too relaxed all the tracks. A lot of great songs but not enough to really keep me that interested.
