"A total tribute to the classic rock of the 70's and 80's, the new opus of The Night Flight Orchestra makes you feel like David Hasselhoff. And it feels good."

Take a ladle of Soilwork, a pinch of Arch Enemy, a few spoonfuls of self-mockery, a big melodic-technical icing, sprinkle the whole with 70's and 80's influences, stir energetically to untie the glitter, blow hard to make the kitsch fall down and you'll get the new album of the Swedes of The Night Flight Orchestra.

Direct continuation of the first opus of the same name released in 2020, "Aeromantic II" continues to trace the road imagined by Björn Strid's band almost 10 years ago. The one that will visit the past to bring back the glamour, the ecstasy and especially the fun.

This sixth album starts with 'Violent Indigo', hidden child of Genesis' 'Turn It On Again', between synthesizer riffs and binary powerchords. The instruments are admirably mastered, the voice surfs on the sound magma as if escaped from an episode of Miami Vice and the production is so perfect that you just have to close your eyes to find yourself in an electric blue suit on a Californian beach, sleeves rolled up and sunglasses down, well before the invention of the cell phone and the Internet.

The cassette continues to scroll in the walkman and Toto leaves the place to Motown for the inspiration with 'Burn For Me' and its unstoppable swaying step before copying almost entirely 'A Question Of Time' of Depeche Mode for a 'You Belong To The Night'. It is colorful and brilliantly executed, a glance in the retro which allows to alleviate the vicissitudes of the present by tasting again the old-fashioned charm of a time when everything was possible...

... but if the recipe works, it is better to consume it in small bites to avoid indigestion.

"mais si la recette fonctionne, mieux vaut la consommer par petites bouchées afin d’éviter l’indigestion" ... tout est dit : un titre ça va, deux à la rigueur, mais on se lasse vite de l'enchaînement des morceaux malgré une indéniable qualité de réalisation.

OTHER REVIEWS
BIG BIG TRAIN: Common Ground (2021)
PROGRESSIVE ROCK - Full of feeling and melody, this new opus of the English of Big Big Train is a candidate for the ranking of the most outstanding albums of the genre of the year 2021.
METAMORPHOSIS: I'm Not A Hero (2021)
PROGRESSIVE ROCK - "I'm not a Hero" remains a classic production of neo-progressive rock, with certainly its qualities, but its lack of variety risks to make it quickly disappear from the playlists of the amateurs of the genre.
