Title - Tomorrow is Delayed
Artist - Professor Tip Top

For those not in the know, Professor Tip Top is one of the top progressive rock bands in all Scandinavia! Following a series of classic albums, this critically-acclaimed Norwegian rock band is still highly-regarded and they continue to fuel the musical interest of fans on their brand new album Tomorrow is Delayed (out now via Apollon Prog Records).

Long time Professor Tip Top fans continue to witness the bandís evolution, shining alight on the bandís lead guitarist and primary songwriter, Sam Fossbakk.

That continued evolution moves forward with the recent addition of the bandís new lead singer Sonja Otto as well as the tight rhythm section of Stein HÝgseth (bass) and Charlie Wise (drums).

Debuting on Tomorrow is Delayed, Ms. Otto is a fine singer and she adds in her tasty keyboard sound too and the broad scope and definitive sound of the 8-track, 46 minute album makes it the strongest PTT album yet, in my humble opinion.

Each track is filled with thoughtful lyrics, making a mix of pop, rock and electronic-flavored psychedelic prog music. Even with all the moving music on the first four tracks, the album reaches its zenith on the title track, which appears as track 5 on the CD.

1. Erebus (3:27)
2. In The Mirror (07:07)
3. Under The Crystal Stars (04:02)
4. The Ghost Within (05:55)
5. Tomorrow Is Delayed (05:35)
6. Beneath The Silence (07:43)
7. Objet Petit a (06:11)
8. Earth (03:05)

This retro-inspired progressive, melodic and psychedelic music album opens on the drum-led, melancholic, slow funk rhythms of Erebus and the choir-esque, goth-lite swarth of In The Mirror and backs those up seamlessly with the melodically-created, guitar hipsway of Under The Crystal Stars and then the velvet gossamer of The Ghost Within is brought forth.

Next up is one of my own personal favorites, the swirling Ren-prog vibe of the title track, Tomorrow is Delayed and that is itself followed by the Floyd-imbed Beneath The Silence, this simply breathtakingly opulent album rounding out on the expansively psychedelic Objet Petit a, closing on another session of melancholic rhythms within Earth.

Essential for listeners of 21st century progressive rock, Tomorrow is delayed is already reaching North American ears with the band even as we speak preparing a brand new album for release late 2021/ early 2022 re: Lanes Of Time.
