Phase II/Afterglow/Ahnstern/2010 CD Review

Phase II is a band from New Mexico that plays a Progressive Psychedelic brand that mixes elements of neo-folk to the music to bring it up to the modern days and this is a review of their 2010 album "Afterglow" which was released by Ahnstern.

Drums are mostly slow beats, while the synths and pianos have a 70's progressive music feel to it with a dose of dark ambient, as for the flut it brings out the folk music edge in the music.

Accoustic guitars are mostly folk rock riffs that have elements of neo-folk mixed in with powerful bass playing, while the lead guitars are kind of bluesy sounding guitar solos that also use some electric guitars, as for the vocals athey are all clean singing vocals.

Lyrics coverlove, romance and everyday type situations with a metaphysical feel, while the production sounds ver professional and you can hear all of the instruments that are present on this recording.

In my opinion Phase II are a very good Progressive Psychedelic band that should appeal to all fans of this genre as well as neo-folk. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sweet Lady Fair" "Introture/Goddess Of Dreams" Just For You" and "Rest". RECEMMONDED BUY.
