Nearly two years in the making, 'Just Dreams' celebrates the band's established progressive and atmospheric style whilst breaking new ground with it's sonic diversity. Blue Flux's trademark guitar playing is nothing short of iridescent, yet forms just one of the many peaks in the album's rich soundscape. The haunting mood set by ambient tracks like 'The Rock' or 'In my Dreams' is often swept aside, be it by the sheer exuberance of 'Summerwings' or by the snappy '147'. And then there's the hard-hitting vocals of 'Immunity', or perhaps the Crimson-esque angularity of 'Tantrum'... For all it's variety, 'Just Dreams' is probably the most accessible Blue Flux album to date. Light and shade, splash and ripples, the deep breath before the plunge - it all helps to sustain that visceral throb, deep inside, like an expertly bowed string. Meticulously crafted and brimming with new ideas, 'Just Dreams' is a splendid showcase for a band at the height of their musical creativity. Band History Now into their second decade of musicianship, Blue Flux have long since found a home in the Acoustic and Atmospheric Rock genre 'with a warm slice of prog'. Previous releases include the 1999 classic 'The Beach', the passionate guitar-only album 'Sugarbeat' (2002) and the unmissable 1997 Flux incubator 'The Riddle'. Various critics have loosely compared the Blue Flux sound to the likes of Pink Floyd, Coldplay, Radiohead and Porcupine Tree, whilst invariably stressing the band's uniqueness. With a polite and appreciative nod at the above icons, Blue Flux continue to put their very own stamp on each and every song.
