Fantastic 70‘s prog rock sounding, for fans of Camel, Nektar, Eloy, & Grobschnitt
Telegraph hails from Israel. The quartet embraces an old school prog rock sound with gusto. The band‘s music is highly reminiscent of Camel. Its simply an obvious influence that can‘t be denied.
This is a concept album based around the story of cosmonaut Sergei Krikalev, who had an exceptionally long stay on the Mir spacecraft due to political infighting in the disintegrating Soviet Union. Predominantly (but not exclusively) instrumental the music has a strong melodic bent with symphonic rock elements. In addition to the aforementioned Camel leanings I hear a diversity of other 70s sounds in their musical DNA - including 801 and Novalis. Long flowing tracks with beautiful soloing over a strong rhythmic pulse.
As I work through the album I‘m reminded in parts by The Snow Goose and Moonmadness. I may be overstating the Camel theme here - I don‘t want to give the impression that Telegraph are simply a clone. They aren‘t but you‘ll hear familiar sounds that will make you grin from ear to ear.
