LEGACY PILOTS (feat Styx, dUG Pinnick, Marillion members & more) - Song Book (2023) - full

Featuring impressive star musicians, melodic progressive combo LEGACY PILOTS are well-known for their articulated and sometimes rather complex tracks and instrumental arrangements. However, the band also delivers classic pop-rock / AOR inspired by the likes of TOTO or ASIA.
Alongside their 2023 new album ‘Helix’ (their fourth overal) LEGACY PILOTS come up with this release titled “Song Book“, including together into one place their more ‘commerical song format tracks’.
This compilation will be available only digitally and not on CD, with a focus on the more pop and rock, AOR and melodic rock oriented songs from the band. As a result, this compilation is not targeted towards current fans but rather towards newcomers to their music.
Two tracks differ from the originals: “Handle with Care” come in a new mix and master, and “Ghosts of the Ocean” features an alternative guitar solo by Marillion’s Steven Rothery.
Do yourself a favor and listen to this “Song Book” not only if you are fan of melodic prog, but also fans of classic lite AOR with ‘that’ crystalline sound & detailed production.
