Occasionally I need an album or bit of music just to sit back, headphones on and chill too.
Ascension is such an album. Now don’t get me wrong, this is no mere background noise. Far from it. This is a fine body of work from accomplished musicians who delve deep into the music, bringing out an emotional feel to the album in a way other bands could only wish.
Steve Gresswell, the writer & man behind The Inner Road is someone who only recently was brought to my attention. And I’m very grateful that he was.
Tracks Like The Awakening just flow with some extraordinarily technical guitar work by Jay Parmar & layers
of keyboards from Steve.
The whole album just flows in such a way you don’t really notice where one track ends & another begins, if that makes sense?
This album will certainly be added to my ‘relaxing’ playlist and I shall be watching with real interest what The Inner Road will be doing in the years to come.
