Sanguine Hum has been one of the most interesting groups in the last few years, mixing prog rock, space and ambient, this done in a mostly delicate and often accessible style.

Now We Have Power  is the successor to the excellent Now We Have Light (2015) and mostly explores the same paths, but also adds some different (more energetic) moods to the mix. The very Gentle Giantish ''Speak to Us'' is the best example of this.

All about Now We Have Power is excellent and it's an album that bonifies with repeated listenings. You have to enjoy your prog on the mellow side (think of Marillion's quieter songs) but if you do, Sanguine Hum's latest offering with certainly be in your top 5 albums of 2018.

Highly recommended!
