Reasoning. The - Dark Angel (2008)
The second album from this English band.
The Reasoning is to a large degree what we called supergroup in the good old days. Members who comes from other bands. The Reasoning is a permanent band though and the fulltime job for all it's members.
Yes, The Reasoning is a female fronted neo prog/art rock band. References in their case are Magenta and Mostly Autumn. The Reasoning though is one of the best female fronted bands. Dark Angel really established them in the elite division of bands. It opens with the excellent title track and Rachel Cohen's excellent vocals. She and Dylan Thompson's vocals and vocal harmonies is this band's trademark. That and the great songs they comes up with. They also has a lot of great guitar solos, harmonies and riffs.
Not everything here is great. But Dark Angel is one of the better albums in this genre and a great album in my estimation. I thoroughly enjoys it and hereby recommends it.
