Isobar - Isobar II (2021)

The second album from this US band.

The band was a quartet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars and keyboards. 

The band had help from a duo who provided saxes, saxophones and trumpets.

I have not had the chance to sample their debut album. But the band got a label as an eclectic prog band on the basis of that album and that meant I picked up this album for review.

Eclectic prog, it is not.

Take fusion and add some cinematic jazz to the mix. Add a small hint of both King Crimson and Gentle Giant too. Add some Camel symphonic prog too.

There is not much quirkiness on this album, though. There is no vocals on this album too.

The music is not particular interesting and I find it a bit difficult to stay concentrated when listening to this album. 

This is a decent enough album but only that. I am not impressed.
