Ryan Staffaroni Well, it looks like we found Jethro Tull's odd nephew.. and he's got his own little neo-prog space caravan filled with robot blue jays, dancing chocolate rabbits, smiles on balloon strings and everything in between. What a delightful quagmire of sound. Favorite track: Twilight Cinema.

Keemvink Pogues meet Waits on this album. A bit dark, a bit melancholic, but also making you want to jump across the room. Favorite track: Black River.

Fábio Gueifão Awesome record! Evey track is just spot on, a real Maelstrom of so many different types of music, all attached by a really thick progressive string. One of the best records of 2014, by far. Favorite track: Black River.

Nicolas RESSOT MP ajoute une dimension ''prog'' à sa discographie avec cet album, tout en gardant sa patte et son style. Mes amis, je vous le dis en vérité, une oeuvre est en train de s'écrire sous nos yeux, entre nos oreilles, à travers le temps... Favorite track: A Cabin in the Sky.

BrownieTheOne I loved Twilight Cinema the first time I heard it, and I still do. The album is a wonderful blend of many styles, and the album art is sublime. Major Parkinson go above and beyond for their fans, as there was a delay that I assumed was due to factors outside their control, however they sent alongside my order a copy of Songs From A Solitary Home with an apology note.

A++ Will buy from many times again, and urge my friends to do the same. Favorite track: Twilight Cinema.

about

The third album of Major Parkinson shows a band that has matured significantly. The work has been named Twilight Cinema and is mixed by legendary Yngve Saethre in Duper Studio. The whole thing has been a dark, uncompromising and ambitious journey through a dense forest of melodies, closely accompanied by a black river of doom poetry. Twilight Cinema is a darker version of Major Parkinson than the one we know from previous releases, without having gone beyond the band's character. The classic Parkinson-like melodies have now found their place in a far tighter directed and more electronic sound. Artwork by Martin Kvamme
