Iluvatar - From The Silence (2014)

The fourth album from this US band.

Iluvatar has been quite a name to be reckoned with in the east-coast prog rock scene for the last years. They have played some gigs and my good friend Raff has reviewed one of their gigs in her blog.blog.
That review made me purchase this album.

Iluvatar is a five piece band on this album with the usual keyboards, drums, guitars, bass and vocals lineup. The music is some sort of neo-prog. In this case; US neo-prog. 

Take some US symph prog, AOR and European neo-prog. Then you get this album. It is not quite symphonic prog and not quite neo-prog. It is US neo-prog. 

This fifty-five minutes long album has some good songs. Well, everything here is good. The sound is rich and warm. Ditto for the vocals and the instruments. What is lacking is a killer or even a good track. It is not here and that is a pity as I quite like this band. Neo-prog fans will really like this album.
