Laura Meade’s – The Sun Remains the Same




Laura Meade’s – Remedium

Another wonderful singer and person is on tap for today’s review. Laura Meade, also know for her work in IZZ, has put out a solo album. Our first meeting was at ProgWest 2002 and we have seen her perform with IZZ a few times. We always had a great time during the show and enjoyed meeting her and the rest of the band afterwards.

Remedium as you would expect, features Laura prominently. There is also a lot to like for bass players on this album. I can’t, however, recommend this album.

This might be a personal bias of mine, but I really struggle with albums that are solo female artists whether it’s pop or prog. Unfortunately, Remedium didn’t change my bias as I am not hearing any drama or compelling reason to listen to this album over another. I will say I may be in the minority as Remedium has been well received by others including Prog magazine and NJ Proghouse.

I think several tracks would make great passages in IZZ songs. If you do like solo female artists, for example some of Christina Booth’s solo work, then I would give this a try – otherwise take a pass.
