Thanks to Prog Magazine for this fabulous review of Colin Harper’s ‘Titanium Flag’ album … they get it!
“It’s the most melancholy concept album inspired by Arctic exploration from the fourth century BC to the present day you’ll hear this side of the North Pole.
“Lovingly packaged with detailed vintage maps, history notes and a dash of geopolitics … Pianoled, quiet jazz with a pinch of folk, it keeps Harper’s own acoustic guitars veiled in the background, allowing violin, clarinet and flugelhorn to assist that dominant piano in creating a sparse, wintry soundscape.
“Two longer jams, however, provide a shot of adrenaline.
“While its frozen oceans are almost reclusive in their moodiness, Titanium Flag is a work of near-devotional purity, and as an extended instrumental passage, it succeeds as a study of courageous spirits and loneliness.”
