Yup, I gave it a listen. There are some songs I totally love on here. I've had Moments of Thunder on repeat for a while now.

I found it very hard to differentiate anything from the last release.  It was quite enjoyable, but I felt like I was listening to Amber Galactic all over again.

It is very similar overall but there are some distinct differences. I feel like this new one is a bit more elaborate than amber galactic was.

This resparked my interest in the album.

From the other songs though what Chad said is what I was thinking so far.

I love this band and for me it's a discovery from the last 6 months. I can say I'm really addicted to its discography at this point!
My initial thought on this album is that it's really strong as the rest, but, in terms of style, I gues the band is slowly shiffiting from a more oriented 70's classic rock style from the first two to a more AOR style from the last two, with more predominance of the keyboards on each album. For sure, this new one is a bit more keyboard oriented than Amber Galactic. I'm loving this album, I'm pleasent surprised with the very sucessfull mix of AOR and prog on "The Last of the Independent Romantics" - incredible song, but I still think it will be very hard to surpass the superb quality that Amber Galactic has in each song.

Amber Galactic is such a fun album, one of my favorites of 2017 for sure.

I grew up with ABBA - they (along with Simon and Garfunkel) are the first pop music i ever knew and i still think they're the best pop band in history.

This album has a lot of ABBA style arrangements in some of the guitar riffs. I'm thinking they swallowed Voulez Vous and swirled it up in joyful rock goodness in several areas.

Cool, I grew up listenting a lot of ABBA too, my parents and older brothers liked them a lot. So ABBA has a special place in my heart.
Interesting, I didn't catch the influences on the arreangements. I'll check them out :tup
What I meant to say with a more keyboard oriented, that was not with the intention to say that there's lesser guitars on this album, but I do think there's less guitar riffs on the album. Anyway, no problem for me.

A bit off topic but since Björn proven he's a versatile singer I thought it's time for those how don't know too learn about another side of him:

I interviewed Björn about the new album, such a cool guy: https://www.musicalypse.net/the-night-flight-orchestra-bjorn-strid-2018/ I'm also working on a review, which is coming soon :)

There's a "space dye vest" reference in the lyrics to Barcelona. Wonder if they thought it would resonate with a DT fan. :-)

Really enjoyed the album today. Singer sounds like Graham Bonnet.
