Lifesigns – Cardington (Green LP)
This is a Plane Groovy Release.
This is a re-release on green 140 gram vinyl.
Lifesigns sophomore release showing the band in impressive form. Everything we loved about the first album has been retained and they have gone even further here. To fund the album the band started a Pledge Music campaign and managed to fund it within 48 hours, a proof of the strong connection they have with their fan base, if you don’t know them or isn’t a fan yet listen to Cardington, you won’t regret it.
“Cardington is brilliant, it is a monumental work, and yes, it is to be salivated over by any self respecting prog-fan. If you are in any doubt, please do not be – Cardington is one of the must-have melodic prog-albums of 2017” – Prog Nick, The Prog Report
“The album was largely funded via a pledge music campaign that met its target in just 48 hours, the result being a 49-minute long, seven song suite, the epic title concerning the R101 airship disaster of 1930 with a title that takes its name from the site of the Royal Airship Works and base for the development of R101. The music itself is classy, intelligent and varied in style, opening with a salvo of piano before a strident synth part is introduced, and although at first the album sounds confusing, as you play it afresh it seems to unfold itself somehow and everything makes more sense as themes emerge and gain prominence. It is, after all is said and done, a really imaginative release which shows the rapport that this band of musicians have together.” – The Progressive Aspect
“Lifesigns has succeeded where so many other bands have failed. They have released a sophomore album that manages to retain what I loved so much about the first album, and they have pushed the envelope even more than I expected, whether musically or in the poetic lyrics. “Cardington” is one of the best albums of the year” – The Prog Mind
