Robert Fleischman´s voice age like wine, so many singers struggle hard to keep their voices in shape when they´re getting old but Robert sounds young and he´s singing in a higher pitch on "Majestic" compared to The Sky´s first album from 2011.
There´s a romantic atmosphere over the entire new album even though you´ll find a serious undertone in his lyrics, I do think The Sky´s 2nd album is stronger than their debut which was good too.
"Majestic" sounds more complete and rich, you can of course hear the obvious influences of John Lennon but there´s more added to this musical landscape like James Bond soundtrack vibes and even Jefferson Airplane´s 70´s era.
Robert also takes the listener back to the sound of his first solo album in the AOR-ish "So I´ll wait", songs like "In my head" and "Little by little" bring thoughts to Jeff Lynne while the folkrock-like "Don´t know what I´d do" could´ve been an unreleased song by America.
Fans of the first The Sky album will love tracks such as "Breath away", "Pill" and "One day", to me they´re new Robert Fleischman classics.
