I remember years ago listening to this band for the first time, when I read that they would go out on a European tour with a group from Greece (can’t remember which one) and I really liked the song “Hyperventilating” from their fifth album “V”. The years have passed since then, I never really spent much time with their music (why indeed?) and now we’ve come to their seventh full-length release.

The progsters from distant Australia have made a really good name and they are one of the many bands that stand out from this country’s scene that has a lot of quality to offer. Having a bit different sound from when they started, as gradually they added more elements to their music. In time, they got influences from the djent scene and the keyboards that they always had were upgraded and as a result their sound was filled with electronic parts.

This is what someone will listen in “Colours In The Sun”. Short compositions with running time a little over four minutes, lots of melodies and atmosphere (especially on the refrains), djent rhythms with lots of breakdowns and many electronic parts create the puzzle of their music. This album also has the smallest duration of all the rest, even by little.

In conclusion, this is a nice release by the Aussies, but it’s not my cup of tea. I didn’t find even one song to make me cling to it like the one in the introduction of this article. Not that it’s bad, but I’m not the biggest fan of the modern prog sound, so this is not something that I will listen to again in the future. But, for those of you who are, you know what to do if you don’t know Voyager so far.
