This also includes a digital download on September 1st, if you're too impatient to wait for the mailman. Heart of Hickory is such an amazing song to anchor this album. If you are looking for something really good but a little different in the prog world, check this out, highly recommended! As a sextet Major Parkinson eventually released their eponymous debut in 2008, recorded at Radiostar Studios and produced by Sylvia Massy, mostly known for her work with Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tool, Johnny Cash and System Of A Down. What a pleasant, quirky surprise - dark, intense, and even light-hearted at the same time, with great musical performances, especially on keys. There's a lot of instrumentation like saxophone, xylophone, cello, etc. Jens Erik Aasmundseth is the drummer of the band. Songs From A Solitary Home is highly recommended.

Twilight Cinema

On this record the presence of a girl: Annette Kathinka Servan is also important. Eivind Gammersvik plays bass, Lars Christian Björknes plays synth and Steinar Hjelmbrekke plays guitar. Moe Major Parkinson from Norway has found a way to combine quite dark progressive rock with pop sensibilities. It'll be shipped your way before September 1st, so depending on the various postal services of the world, that should give you the album well before the actual release date. It doesn't sound like other prog rock, it touches other modern genres but mostly it is just unique.

Munchausen by Proxy

The tracks of the album are very short, but contain dense, rich and quirky musicianship. Four stars; an excellent addition to any adventurous prog rock music collector. You know that he has a big voice, but you don't want to scare away the children. Posted Thursday, October 19, 2017 Review 1814296 I just picked up all their music, and I am blown away by everything that I have heard. It is a staccato abrupt journey both into the absurd and the unknown, and I am all the richer for having heard it.

Posted Friday, August 8, 2014 Review 1238869 This music would probably be very entertaining to see live--kind of like a Sweeny Todd barrel house Broadway musical--but I'm not sure how progressive this is. Then let's add some accordion-driven pirate metal just for the hell of it, and see what the punters make of it. We see a cold forest with a raven in the centre, who is sitting on a stone. Or the next Rocky Horror Picture Show which, again, is not considered a prog album. There is some addictive chorus throughout and beautiful keyboards melodies.

Twilight Cinema

The vocals are too out there; the band is not afraid of tossing in some atonal notes here and there; this is almost avant-rock-pop. If you fail to mail us your favorite tale, that entails we'll make the choice for you. The chorus is so out of a 1980s film soundtrack! Not only do I still listen to Twilight Cinema on a regular basis, many of my friends that have little interest in music much less prog love this album. Recorded and mixed by producer in her RadioStar Studios in Weed, California. I am a fan of eclectic stuff, so they fit nicely into my collection. Artwork by Martin Kvamme credits. The album never becomes boring, because Major Parkinson keeps adding layers and the atmospheres are really sufficient.

MAJOR PARKINSON discography and reviews

Often we hear sounds from a circus and the record is both exciting and harmonic. They are creative, make challenging compositions that are still easy to enjoy and listen to, managing to be challenging without being overly demanding, but they also create material that is very much their own and a few left turns away from most other bands out there. It demonstrates the best of pretty much everything about this album - the vocals are great, the song has at least three or four separate themes catchy enough that they should be songs of their own topping pop charts, quirky instrumentation, and amusing lyrics. The band has countless examples like this in their catalog that demonstrate how unique their sound is. All of this shipped on or before September 1st. I have only just come across this group, so this was all totally new to me, and having played it and then started working out what on earth I could try and say about it! More or less the full package.

Awkward as a Drunk 5:33 13. On the first side of the vinyl the band plays its dark pop without much interruption. Actuelly this record surprises me. .

MAJOR PARKINSON Blackbox reviews

If the general mood could be haunting, the second part of the album brings some light pop melodies. Actually the theatrical approach of the group reminds of a less melodic and keyboard-based A. This is a pleasant four star progressive album that friends and family might also like. Posted Wednesday, November 29, 2017 Review 1827461 Despite displaying very little instrumental flash, nuance, or virtuosity, Major Parkinson continues putting out interesting poppy prog goth noir--this one their fourth. Even if the sound mostly is quite dark is it so full of intriguing ingredients and funny sound effects so you'll be happy to hear it anyway.

Silicon Hips deals with a love of plastic perfection; Death in the Candystore about equating love with material gifts. However, in some ways, it's a bit less adventurous. Released 2008 Recorded , United States, 2006 Length 47: 03 chronology Major Parkinson 2008 2010 Professional ratings Review scores Source Rating Major Parkinson is the debut album of the Norwegian rock band. I can absolutely understand how people consider this a five star record and I want to praise it honestly. No epics or smooth, slow developing songs.

Posted Wednesday, April 2, 2014 Review 1156871. Major Parkinson biography Founded in Bergen, Norway in 2003 Major Parkinson soon started playing at small venues, but build a strong fundament with a growing local following, soon they started to play a larger venues and festivals, namely Eggstokk festival rock festival in Bergen. Compared to previous works, it did take me a while to fall in love with this album, as there is more of a focus on building up to a climax throughout the major tracks and throughout the album. All staccato, stop and start, avant-garde and theatric. The album got positive reviews in national media newspapers, which further led to some national and international tour dates, culminating in the Hove-Festival where they shared stage with Faith No More and Disturbed. Something by John Hughes or Pump Up the Volume. It was released in Norway on 25 August 2008.
