Travis Stever of Coheed and Cambria´s solo project Davenport Cabinet goes from soft prog to classic rock with one foot in 70´s and the other in the 90´s. Their 5th release "Damned renegades" ain´t as complex as Coheed and Cambria but there is some resemblance, otherwise the music bring thoughts to Steven Wilson meets Edwin (I Mother Earth) with a touch of 70´s band Pilot.
Travis share the lead vocal duties with Tyler Klose and they complete each other, I can´t say I can point out any songs that gives me the goosebumps but it´s an even album.
So called ear candy for fans of alternative prog.
Highlights : "Bulldozer", "Students of disaster"
