Title: Vikings
Label: CD Baby
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

Eight years have passed since 'Anyman' was born and NEO has produced an equally fabulous endeavor in 'Vikings.' It has been 2 1/2 years now that the composer, Michael Lunn, passed away. Since that sad event the band members have spent their time and energy fullfilling his goal of recording his music. What a remarkable job they've done! The title track, Vikings, is an epic tale consisting of 9 tracks and 28 minutes. It takes you on a voyage so real that you see a story unfold while you can almost smell the salty sea air. A magnificent piece of music filled with powerful sounds and contrasts in rhythms. Very possibly this is Mike's masterpiece. An interesting tune for a change of pace comes in the rhythmic and keyboard-laden tune, Anytown. Beautiful lyrics were added to Final Peace expressing the emotions of band members after losing their friend. Super Monkey is a fun farce sure to make you smile! Written about a widow living in a Victorian house, Katherine Ives is a slower-paced, sweet song. Mike's Final Peace is a hauntingly beautiful and sad instrumental melody featuring sounds of bagpipes, guitar, and keys. Mikes influences to name a few were, Yes, Genesis, ELP, Kansas, Pink Floyd, Gentle Giant.
