Aquaplanage - Aquaplanage (2008)

The one and only album from this English band. 

This band is in reality the Yes tribute band Fragile. A band who has toured with Steve Howe amongst others. To not to confuse the matter, they released this one hour album with original material as Aquaplanage. Which seems like a smart choice. 

The music here is not really symphonic prog in the vein of Yes. It is not symphonic prog at all with the possible exception of the fifteen minutes long Ode To Grey Mornings suite. The rest of this album is neo prog and that on the more poppy side of this rainbow.

The music is created with keyboards, guitars, bass, drums and vocals. The music pretty much songs orientated with the exception of the above mentioned suite. There is a lot of hooks and choruses here.

The end result is by all means a good album. The suite is the best thing about this album as the suite shows a lot of promise. The rest is at times so-and-so. Not particular good in other words. This is still an album well worth checking out.
