IO Earth Aura CD

This album is all that I hoped for…

Review by Mark Priestly – 16th April 2020

This album is all that I hoped for after hearing about the new project from IO Earth at their Christmas party gig. It was described by guitarist Dave Cureton as the softer side of IO Earth, and there is certainly plenty of evocative and melodic music on this album. At times, however, the music builds in intensity and is more stirring and up-beat. There is an excellent mix of male and female vocals, and extended instrumental sections, including some lovely piano and guitar playing. All in all, a wonderful follow up to the excellent Solitude and a worthy addition to the IO Earth catalogue.
