On with the series, so time to write a few words about song 8 on the Seasons album: A Silent Cry. And even when it is hard for me to chose favourites, it is safe to say this is one of them. There are a number of reasons for me to really like this song. First the lyric. Being ever the optimist, lines like “life and how to survive it”, or “for your dreams to come true” and many others,Continue readingSeasons – Song by Song: 8/12
Apologies for being silent for so long. Yet I guess many of us are aware of the many challenges this year is bringing us… Anyway, on with the track stories! Circles is one of the instrumentals and of course the name refers to the seasons that keep going round and round. Originally the demo was all guitar and little to no keyboards. But while working on the album version, I felt it would make more sense to change the second partContinue readingSeasons – Song By Song: 7/12

From the UK come these 2 reviews. First one from Powerplay is a bit odd. I am certain there are 3 and not 4 instrumentals on the album. Still ,being tagged as a solid prog rock release isn’t half bad. The second one is from The Rocker and with awesome words like “excellent, delighted, genre fans should definitely be investigating” very much worth a read. Thanks to the writers!
So far we have received lots of praise for the album! Very thankful the hard work is recognized 🙂 French site ProgCritique gave it a 4/5 star review and say “On the whole ” Seasons ” always presents the concern to do well and each title offers a well structured music, with sufficient developments to mobilize the attention of the listener!” (translated from French by Google) ViriAor hands it a whopping 5/5! “Seasons repeats the band’s musical formula, although it includesContinue readingMore Seasons reviews!
Time is long overdue to continue with the Song by Song series! And today it is time for Eyewitness, track 6 of the Seasons album. Don’t know about you, but I like a bit of storytelling. And this track is an example. Not really a whodunnit, as that should be clear I think, but anyway. Musically we go through several time changes here. From 4 x 4, tot 5 x 4 and even a bit of 7 x 4. ButContinue readingSeasons – Song by Song: 6/12
When releasing a new album, no matter how proud you are, there is always some anxiety involved in how it will be perceived. Well, if the first 2 reviews we got count as the example, I think it’s gonna be alright. The first one is from the wonderful wordsmith Dmitry Epstein, giving the album a whopping 4/5 star rating. You can read his thoughts here. Next someone who was offended by the artwork of Angels? but decided to give SeasonsContinue readingFirst reviews for Seasons are in!
