Ciccada - Harvest (2021)

The third album from this band from Greece.

The band is a seven piece big band with a lineup of drums, percussion, bass, guitars, woodwinds, recorder, mellotron, harpsichord, synths, piano, electric piano, glockenspiel, clavinet, organ and vocals.

This band caused quite a sensation with their 2010 debut album A Child In The Mirror. The 2015 follow up album The Finest Of Miracles cemented their status as one of the finer bands in progressive folk rock.

Their music is a mix of folk rock and progressive rock. Add some of the magic from The Third And The Mortal too and you get this album.

The music is as lush as the cover artwork alludes to.

Lots of various instruments here. Most of them are acoustic and gives the music a nice folk rock feel.

The overall quality is very good and this is another very good album from this band. A band with a lot of admirers in the scene. 

I am one of them.

3.5 points
