Progressive Rock Comes Alive with Druckfarben

Are you fans of the classic rock band Yes? That's what I was thinking about while listening to Second Sound, the sophomore album from the Canadian rock band Druckfarben.  And that's before I read their bio and learned that all the members participated in a recreation of the Yes albums Close to the Edge and The Yes Album. Pretty cool. In this release, Progressive Rock is still kicking - and pretty cool to listen to these original songs that seem straight from the 70's. The harmonies are tight, elements of classical music are present, and there's one extremely long finale - the 19 minute title track. Liberated Dream is my favorite delivering a little psychedelic funk to the picture, with An Answer Dreaming close behind. Pair with Toronto's Black Creek Historic Brewery. Cheers.
