‘Avatar’ is now back in print on vinyl.

After 2004’s critically acclaimed ‘Blue Cathedral’ one might have expected Comets On Fire to blast off into the cosmos. Surprising, then, that they should turn in an earthy, more accessible and downright beautiful album as this follow-up. Then again, it is a completely logical progression but in reverse.

On ‘Avatar’ Comets display development in every direction - as musicians, as songwriters, as arrangers and as singers - without sacrificing one ounce of the intensity expected from our heroes. As on ‘Blue Cathedral’, the diversity of the material is staggering. ‘Avatar’ veers from swinging, bluesy explorations to piano-laced, progressive power balladry, to pure tribalism, evoking everyone from the Allmans, to Quicksilver, to Procol Harum, to some insane Fela / Sun Ra / Crazy Horse hybrid, yet remains wholly Comets On Fire.
