After their debut full length in 2002 and an EP in 2004, the Dutch progrock band A Day?s Work deliver a true masterpiece in their new album "A Home in the rain". Their sound is somewhere between Marillion (the Steve Hogarth era), Ray Wilson and Simple Minds - it could be a helluva lot worse if you?ll ask me.....woooahyeah this is the kinda album I want Santa to bring me for x-mas but my good friend Tonnie supported me with a cdr of it a few weeks back and I thank him so much because I?m speechless.
Singer Paul Glandorf is brilliant and sounds like a mix of Steve Hogarth and Jim Kerr, he?s backed up by the supertight band of Wouter Schild - bass, Maarten Apel - guitar, Martijn Weyburg - guitar, Colin Lee Vermeulen - drums and Len van de Lak - keyboards. Marvelous production and a magnificent line up of songs will put this album high on my best of 2006 list. I just love the fat bass of this album, the mighty Taurus pedals has yet again spoken!
