Review by kev rowland
3 stars Back in 2005 this trio were being heralded as the top progressive band in Uzbekistan with three albums under their belts, but for some reason it has taken them nine years to come back with their next one. There has been a slight line-up change in that they have a new drummer in Vlad Nemtinov, but Igor Savich (guitars, vocals, keyboards) and Constantine Savich (bass) are still there. Musically they following a similar path to before, with solid neo-prog with keyboards not as much to the fore as in many prog acts. But, they are definitely more than just a rock band with keyboards as they follow quite a technical path. I notice that they are down as "prog-related" on PA, but I could see them fitting better in "Heavy Prog" or "Neo", but does the label really matter?

This is solid as opposed to exciting, although there are some instances (such as the bridge on "November Snow") when they show real class. The overall feeling is that while this won't set the world alight, at least they are back in the game and it will be interesting to see if they follow this up with another quite quickly or if there will be another waiting game.

3 stars Hailing from Uzbekistan, FLIGHT 09 has been around in one form or another for almost 30 years, formed all the way back in 1986. Over the years they have released a good number of albums too, although the greater majority of them aren't that well known from what I can tell. "Signs of the Water" is Flight 09's tenth full length production, unless I've read their history wrong, and was released through the Russian label MALS Records in 2014.

As much as I'd like to throw praise at Flight 09's latest CD, this isn't a case where that is possible. Their material alternates between compelling blends of neo progressive rock and hard rock on one hand, with an emphasis on the latter, and a nice enough take on progressive metal on the other. The songs are good, but not great however, and with a fairly weak production and what I'll have to describe as heavily accented vocals, the detrimental aspects of this album does outweigh the positive ones rather extensively. There is an audience for this album just as most others of course, I'd suggest fans of sophisticated hard rock to be the core audience for this production, where individual tastes in production quality and perceptions on accented vocals will decide whether or not "Signs of the Water" will be regarded as an enjoyable production.
