Third release from Norwegian multi musician Arild Brøter (Drums, Keyboards, guitars, writer, producer & Arranger) where he normally did most of the work, this time he opened for musical friends to participate! The music herein, is what you could call Urban Electronic Prog! It is instrumental music with drums & keyboards to the fore, but you get the occasional lead instrument in form of guitar and/or Alto sax, for the latter just listen to the beautiful “The East Side” a wonderful track that remind this reviewer of Dutch instrumental proggers: Solution! “Wanderlust” has an oriental feel to it, a caravan through the desert like theme. “Bobcat” has a tight and hard opening with good time signature breaks and great guitar lead, only to simmer down after the 2:29 min. mark, letting the keyboards flow in a Greenslade manner! I love instrumental prog albums and this one is no exception, that said there is nothing new under the sun, talking instrumental prog ! But Pymlico holds their own and they are great at what they do! I haven’t heard their former 2 releases, so I cant really compare. What I can, is telling you that they are well worth a whirl and they honestly deserves a chance! The final track and the epic tune here are “Neptune” with its duration of 13:48 min. with superb sequences of almost cinematic theme´s and wonderful musical excursions from all involved, leading the listener into several musical landscapes, after the 5 minute mark they almost comes across like mid period Pink Floyd !!
You most certainly wanna visit Pymlico and I for one will revisit Pymlico, this one goes straight to my private collection!!
