This album relates, through the eyes of the protagonist, the lives of different characters from a contemporary big city. Sometimes metaphorical, sometimes particularly realistic, these different existences show the absurdities of our current world and the way we learn to live with our sufferings.

Return Home is a concept album (i.e. about the life of different characters from a contemporary big city) by French band Nine Skies. Actually, listening to to very good prog album, nothing hints at the origins of this group of talented musicians, They could easily be from the UK or USA.

Although the 10 tracks are clearly part of the same album (not a collection of unrelated songs), a number of stylistic influences can be heard of Return Home. At times jazz, pop, rock, prog... moods appear on what I certaimly consider to be a progressive rock album. Depending of the track, hints of recent Opeth, Marillion or Porcupine Tree appear, but most of waht I hear is in Nine Skies' own style.

Good songs, great musicianship and excellent singing... pretty much everything that makes a great prog album. Recommended!
