Not a review as such, because it’s only had a single listen so far. But the atmospherics with strings, repeated piano figures and occasional nods to Pink Floyd made a very good first impression.
But the modern progressive rock scene has put out quite a few albums with a similar feel and mood over the last few years; records by artists that probably aren’t on the radar screens of the mainstream fans and critics who have been praising “A Moon Shaped Pool”. It makes you wonder whether Thom Yorke and Johnny Greenwood have been listening to Anathema, The Pineapple Thief or Steven Wilson.
So, if you love there new Radiohead album, here are just three records you might also like:
- Weather Systems by Anathema.
- Occupying Forces by Halo Blind
- The self-titled solo album by Bruce Soord.
If you’re a regular reader of this blog, I’m probably telling you things you already know.
