Seventh studio album for the Watch, the italian tribute band to classic Genesis (1969-1980).
The original albums from The Watch have always been really well crafted in a Genesis-Gabriel era style.
An awaited album!
The band’s seventh studio album, three years after their last studio effort (Tracks From The Alps)
and after endless touring on both sides of the Atlantic, is simply called Seven
and it boldly explores seven lush new sonic and lyrical landscapes as only The Watch can.
Each track has its own distinct flavour and stretches the band’s sound
in new directions whilst maintaining that classic Watch sound. The eighth track is an intimate revisiting of The Hermit,
featuring the guitar brilliance of none other than Steve Hackett himself.
No single lyrical theme prevails; Disappearing Act (the art of dropping off the radar when remaining yourself is the hardest trick to pull off), After The Blast (a personal and universal theme of loss), Blackest Deeds (how far can our conscience recede?), Copycat (what if the real aliens are inside us and are trying to get out?), Tightrope (good old Mount Etna!), It’s Only a Dream (recalling personal moments) and Masks (the real gods and demons fight blindly on).
Settimo album in studio per i milanesi The Watch, una fra le migliori tribute band dei Genesis epoca 1969-80.
Gli album con materiale originale dei The Watch sono sempre stati molto ben concepiti e realizzati con un inconfondibile stile in linea coi Genesis di epoca Peter Gabriel.
Un album molto atteso!
