Elektradrive - Living 4
Almost fifteen years on from their last release, cult Italian band Elektradrive return with their new album 'Living 4'. This new album see a slight change in musical direction for the band, with them moving away slightly from the AOR/Melodic rock style of their previous efforts to a more Prog Rock sound, which they pull off really well.
'Living 4' is a lesson to other bands on just how this stuff should be done, an album full of textures both musically and lyrically. 'Living 4' is a concept album, which tries to tackle many environmental issues such as water scarcity etc.
Musically this album really is a great record, songs like 'In A Superficial Way', Water Diviner' and the great commercial single 'You Are Always On My Mind'.
As i said musically, 'Living 4' brings more muscle to the table than Elektradrives previous albums, giving us a great contemporary Prog Rock album.
