The Future Left Behind By Leon Alvarado

Leon Alvarado albums have tread the line between ambient and progressive rock music. Now his latest release, The Future Lefy Behind, has pushed him squarely into the realm of progressive rock.

His new album is an ambitious project. Inspired by Rick Wakeman’s Journey To The Centre of The Earth, he has created a thematic instrumental progressive rock opus.

The music builds throughout the album as it paints pictures of his science fiction story of exploration and leaving the earth behind. Alvarado plays most of the instruments including keyboards. Also on hand is guitarist Billy Sherwood on all the music tracks except one, and Rick Wakeman who guests with a solo on “Launch Overture.”

Alvarado has undertaken a difficult project and managed to create an interesting and ultimately satisfying album.
