UK symphonic progband YAK, have always had a special place in my musical heart and I have had the pleasure of "talking " to Martin Morgan (Composer, keyboard wiz) now and then, via our facebook friendship! Now finally...this new and fourth ,release sees the light of day!! I can tell you right now that this is a must have album, every serious prog collector and afficionado will wanna own this superb release!! Not one filler, not a dull moment, just excellent symphonic prog music, delivered by these three fine musicians.
Style wise YAK are very much Genesis (early period) like... mind you no guitars, no vocals, just pure and excellent progmusic all the way!
This cd has been sitting in my cd player for quite some time now and the repeat button worn out. It is about time that these fine musicians got the fame and acknowledgement that they so richly deserve!!
What can you do, you might ask ?! It really is a win win situation.. for starters buy this great release and treat yourself to a great musical gift and experience..thus supporting this great trio as well.
I for one would love more music from YAK, sooner the better!!
The only downside to this fine release...would be..its to short , duration wise!!
Still I love the epic tracks here:
1. Quest for the Stones (23:59)
2. Vale of Aeternum (19:26)
