Sphin'x - Sphin'x (2013)

The second album from this French band and my first taste of them.

The album starts out as a mix of Pink Floyd and Rush anno the 1980s. Rush anno Signals to be more precise. Then it moves to a harder edge rock and more art rock like Pink Floyd, Tears For Fears, Porcupine Tree, Rush and Simple Minds.

The result is a good fifty minutes with pretty commercial music which is only lacking one important ingredient: Good to great songs. All other ingredients is there. Long guitar solos, good vocals, some good electronica and samples, thundering bass and drums and some soaring keyboards.

I am not sure if this is a decent or a good album. The sound is good so that puts the album in the good category. If you love mainstream rock, this album is well worth checking out on Youtube. If not; forget it.
