Rtdfact - Life is Good (2017)

The one and only album from this Russian - US band.

The band is a quartet with a lineup of drums, bass, keyboards and synths.

The band was helped out by a symphonic orchestra, flute, saxophones, guitars and vocals.

Jeff Scott Soto and Nad Sylvan was two of those who added their vocals to this album and I guess even they must have scratched their heads in bewilderment when they were listening to this album.

The album was sold to me as a retro 1970s prog album with influences from all the big prog bands from that era.

We get some of that.......... and a lot more. Oh yeah. 

In the middle of the album, a symphonic orchestra with all the instruments takes over for a lot of minutes of this in total forty-two minutes long album.

We get classical music, indeed.

The progressive rock here is good. The classical music is also fairly good.

This album is a very original take on progressive rock with some AOR and classical music thrown into the mixer.

It is a shame that this album has not really got an audience. It really deserve an audience. It is a bit of a shock to the system, but the music is good.

Go on an adventure and check out this album.
