The Review:

The Amber Light’s debut, Goodbye To Dusk, Farewell To Dawn, contains over an hour of great music which displays a maturity that defies their age. Yes here we have another progressive rock band with members in their early twenties. Another welcomed surprise is that they exclusively use analog equipment and they draw their influences from progressive music both modern and classic. From the modern side of the music, one can hear similarities to Sigur Ros and Radiohead.On the classic side, you can hear some Van Der Graaf Generator influences.

The Amber Light have produced an album that draws on the roots of classic progressive rock and interprets it in a truly modern setting without getting pigeon-holed into a retro or neo label. This is one of the surprise releases of 2004 that will frequent any one of my cd players for years to come. Buy a copy from your favorite vendor and enjoy the melodic journey of the Amber Light.
