3.0 goodAntonius | December 2nd 16

The Answer was a band that caught me by surprise last year with their album Raise a Little Hell: powerfull riffing, energetic attitude, delicate melodies. I was eagerly waiting for this year's album to verify my allegiance. Although through the dynamic and atmospheric pre-release tracks "Solas" and "Beautiful World" I thought that something big was coming from the Northern Irish act, the end result was a peculiar landing to new sounds and style. As the band members have admitted in many interviews, the various family issues some of them experienced the last year, had a major role in this. After the lapse of the aforementioned tracks -which represented the two opening songs- Solas takes a twist towards some Gaelic and atmospheric folk moments ("Battle Cry", "In This Land", "Thief of Light", "Being Begotten"). Overall, I would characterise Solas as an experimental album in which the band tries its luck with new instruments, new sounds and new ideas. Recommendations: "Left Me Standing", "Beautiful World", "Solas"
