Sylvan: Force of Gravity

Melodic/Progressive Rock
Rating: 4.5/5.0

Germany's prog rockers Sylvan does not do anything half way. On their seventh studio album Force of Gravity, the band expands the emotional and musical boundaries displayed on 2006 stunning Posthumous Silence with shear abandon. Equally complex and subtle, melancholy and brash, Force of Gravity plays with your musical imagination as only the best progressive rock can do. Follow Me and King Porn show more reckless bravado while Isle of Me and Embedded turn your mood with piano led eriee intrigue. Force of Gravity could be the soundtrack for either a somber or restless day depending on the tune. King Porn and and the longer Vapour Trail could confuse both ways with thoughts and emotions often changing from one movement to the next. For something completely different, Sylvan invokes an alternative rock motif over the successful prog on God of Rubbish. It's all quite profound making Force of Gravity both an intriguing and bewildering accomplish of prog rock. Highly recommended.

In Short

Equally complex and subtle, melancholy and brash, Force of Gravity plays with your musical imagination as only the best progressive rock can do. Amazing.
