Jet Black Sea - The Overview Effect

Label : Freia Music | Archive under prog / sympho metal

Release type: Full-length CD

Roel de Haan : Jet Black Sea is a progressive rock outfit based in The Netherlands that includes many ambient and electronic elements into their often spacey music. ‘The Overview Effect’ is their third release. Its describes the way astronauts regain their appreciation for Earth during and after their time in space. In three tracks this story is told. From departure to return. The time in space is told with a massive 35 minute track. From Pink Floyd to Nine Inch Nails and Ulver’s more ambient elements to classic rock vocals and Porcupine Tree emotionality; Jet Black Sea covers the whole range of progressive rock hallmarks and mostly successful, although the title-track is really stretching it in terms of length and therefore comes across as too pretentious. Not quite their best work, but fans of the aforementioned groups and the band itself are still served well with this ‘The Overview Effect’.
