Blind Owl is one of the forgotten neo prog bands from the 80's from USA. Formed in Boston in mid '80's they manage to release only one album in 1988 named Dubut at dusk. I realy like this unknown and obscure album, neo prog very much like Saga , very melodic with warm vocal arrangements and fine keyboards parts. The album didn't get attention and they disbanded sooner after, but was re released on CD some years after to the delight of many collectors and prog listners. The main composer Bruce Alger, responsable here for keyboards, guitar and vocal parts did a great job, very fine and intriguing vocal arrangements, in Camel style , warm wit an excellent range. Also he will form Eccentric Orbit later, another excellent prog rock band with talented musicians. The music is also more then ok, with fine guitar passages, syth and keybords moods , but owerall songwritting is little dated now, but by no means bad. So, a great discovery for me some years ago, only now manageing to re listen and give a proper review of this talented yet unnoticed band. Fans of Saga, and melodic neo prog bands will enjoy this release.
