"Balloon Astronomy" reminds me of paintings by the Impressionists. It includes beauty and sensitivity, both words and music, for a combined experience of melodic rock. I love the chords and the general strength with gentleness created by the composers and musicians.

I somehow stumbled across this release recently and found the sound samples intriguing, so I decided to make the cd purchase. I'm glad I did. This cd is a nice little gem.

Balloon Astronomy's self-titled debut is a nice musical ride. Sometimes it rocks, sometimes it's mellow, but I find it all to enjoyable. The cd features great vocals and instrumentation. The bulk of the material is performed by the duo of Jim Ledger (vocals, guitars, bass) and Glenn Little (keys, flutes, guitars, etc.). There are a number of guest musicians on an assortment of tracks, including progrock notables such as Nick D'Virgilio (Spock's Beard, Big Big Train, Frost*, NDV, etc.) and Mike Keneally (Frank Zappa, Steve Via, Beer for Dolphins, etc.).

This cd should make a nice addition to any progressive rock music fan's collection.

This is a delightful debut from BALLOON ASTRONOMY consisting of jim Ledger on 'peter gabriel like' vocals and guitars and equally impressive is glenn Little on keyboards flutes and guitars.Pretty piano intro on track one and again on track5 that shows they dont mind changing the pace to set a mood....and the mood is UPLIFTING.What i love about this band is theyre not trying to overplay,theres no intricate,look at me,see what i can do,lengthy solos to lose the listeners way.
the songs are carefully crafted showing a refreshing originality and extraordinary maturity.i always get sucked in by reviewers who descibe bands as genesis sounding but this truly is a band that draws on the finer moments of genesis without losing their identity and originality.boys,start touring,get out there,let em know who you are and don't fight.
i think you're bloody great.
