Once & Future Band - Once & Future Band album review

Album Review

Flamboyant soft prog lives on the Cali wizards’ opulently arranged debut album

The debut album from Californian meta pop wizards Once & Future Band blasts off with a huge sugar rush of stomping drums and starburst fanfares, immediately laying its cards on the table. Unselfconsciously indebted to the big soft rock sounds of the mid-70s, this is music that manages to be both ‘easy’ and ‘difficult’ at the same time, the references it abounds with sometimes getting in the way of its enjoyment.
