The Green Violinist's Farewell Show on May 4th 2017
The Green Violinist are progressive in the same sense as The Pineapple Thief, Porcupine Tree and Marillion (H era) are, meaning that they strive to break out of the chains of conventional song-writing and at the same time sound nothing like the 70s prog rock heroes.
"More thrill & Never ending Blessings" starts off with an emphasis on dark indie rock with extended song structures. There is usually a contrast between the acoustic guitar segments and the heavier parts, much like with Porcupine Tree and the atmosphere is also fairly similar. While the Green Violinist is able to come up with several memorable moments, it just seems that the morbid moments never end and you can't help but feel slightly depressed after the end of the album. The album is very involving.
It's a mighty fine debut album by The Green Violinist, there's no question about that. I just hope there will be a bit more... well, hope on the future releases. I know the situation humanity is in is bleak, but there's a silver lining somewhere in there as well... I hope.
