Life Line Project - Modinha (2008)
The third project from this Dutch band.
The band was a sextet with a lineup of oboe, flute, guitars, electric piano, piano, harpsischord, moog, organ, drums, bass, lute, chittarone, mandolin and synths.
Life Line Project was started by Erik de Beer and has been going on for almost twenty-five years now. I have got a handful of their albums and will review them this summer.
The music is instrumental. Instrumental symphonic prog, that is.
The references to Camel comes thick and fast. The main difference is that Camel was and still is a guitar orientated band. Life Line Project is not. They are more like that other Dutch instrumental symphonic prog band...... Trace.
There is a lot of oboe and flutes on this album. That and some dubious sounding synths.
The music on this fifty minutes long album is not particular interesting. The tracks are pretty dull and does not really comes across as good music. It is not good music either.
This is a decent enough album and just that. I am not impressed.
