2010 release from the British band led by Crispin Mills. Kula Shaker burst onto the music scene in 1996 with the release of K, one of the fastest selling debut albums ever. Imploding after the follow up, they disappeared for nearly 10 years until a very low key album in 2007 signaled their semi-return. Pilgrims Progress showcases a more mature sound, drawing on Folk, '60s R&B and traditional influences as well as their signature Psychedelia. Kula Shaker have retained a very loyal and dedicated fanbase who have stayed with the band since the '90s and have been waiting for this new album for a very long time. Strange Folk.
Not saying that I do not enjoy this one, as I have given it 4 stars which is pretty cool, but there is no comparison between this....and K and Pigs, Peasants....... which are my favourite, but along now with their latest...
So just one word of advice if I may: if you left KS after the first 2 albums and you want to test where they have been ...then get the latest.
But if you are a Kula Shaker lover you must have this too.
A solid good album with in my world is a 4 stars.
Summing up: as a long time connoisseur of psychedelic music, from the sixties to the present day, I can honestly state that this album is a real treat and winner, that deserves to be listened to over and again, to fully appreciate it.
