Swung: Volume 1&2

Volume 1&2

Release Date: 
Tuesday, November 11, 2014

Swung is a band featuring members of the Dutch progressive rock band known as Focus. They improvise most of their songs and recently released a CD set titled “Volume 1&2.” With the exception of the guitarist, the trio has the same line-up on each CD. Across the 2 CDs, this set includes 17 songs from the trio.
I thought the instrumentals were really well done, but I felt like I wanted more out of this album. There were some moments were the song felt repetitive, but overall they had a good spectrum of variety. The songs are perfect for playing in the background for a party, but I would have liked to hear some vocals. Overall, the CDs were bad, but were missing something to make them feel complete. For those reasons, I am giving “Volume 1&2” a “C.”
