IEB Rainbro album review

Progulator Review

“The album is extremely upbeat and grooves really nicely. It’s complex, but doesn’t have to go into virtuoso territory to do so. Despite complex chord progressions, dense arrangements, and varied instrumentation, Inner Ear Brigade never intends to lose the listener. The songs are very easy to follow along, but they still have lots of depth. In the end, Rainbro presents music that is fun, happy, accessible, and proggy. Whether it’s gorgeous vocals, Moog synths, vibes, or Hammond B3, it’s all there for your pleasure. Pick this one up for sure, and if you’re in the Bay Area, make it to the show.”

IEB Rainbro – album review in German!

Translation: “Rainbro” is a thoroughly enjoyable, highly diversified and perfectly produced album with a very unique, retro-inspired U.S. Avantprog with Canterbury impact, to the lovers of something more oblique sounds, especially the above-mentioned U.S. RIO groups should not be missed!”

IEB – Rainbro album review—rainbro.html

“Rainbro may sound like a typical American RIO album on the surface or if you listen casually. The truth is that this impression remains only with the vocals, which is by no means a bad thing. If you dig deeper, you’ll find the music here incredibly rewarding, lush and playful. It does give a huge nod to the masters that came before them, but it is different enough and boasts an arsenal of memorable compositions and arrangements to stand on its own feet.”
