Landmarq Entertaining Angels on Limited Edition Import 2LP
2012's Entertaining Angels is the most recent release from the British prog band Landmarq featuring the long term line-up of the band, led by Tracy Hitchings. The band pushed their songwriting skills to new heights here and have crossed previously unexplored boundaries in the process. Hitchings pulled out all the stops to deliver some truly dazzling performances and took on a more hands-on role with some stunning vocal arrangements.
Multi-talented keyboardist Mike Varty brought his production and mixing skills to the table and along with excellent performances from guitarist Uwe D'Rose, drummer Dave Wagstaffe and bassist Steve Gee, Entertaining Angels stands as a definitive Landmarq effort. The album also includes guest appearances from cellist Hugh McDowell (ELO, Wizzard) and saxophonist Laurent Hunziker (Logicaltramp, Tiptop, Gino Sitson).
Aside from brand new compositions, the album also includes new studio recordings of material first released on the bands critically-acclaimed release Turbulence - Live In Poland. This double vinyl album includes all "regular" tracks from both CDs of the bonus CD edition and comes with a lyric sheet insert. All in all, Entertaining Angels is a worthy addition to all discerning lovers of not just prog-rock, but simply good music!
