Though it sounds like I didn’t like the album, that couldn’t be further from the truth. I just didn’t love it near as much as the first one.
Redemption are truly one of the more accessible prog bands out there and The Art of Loss is such a fantastic album.
There are bands in the history of metal that have forged legacies that will live forever in the annals of metaldom. Some of these bands have made some egregious errors in their careers that have forever tarnished their luster and left their longtime fans scratching their heads wondering, “What the hell has happened to them?” Probably the most recognized of this ilk would be Metallica with everything post And Justice For All.
