Bjørn Riis - Forever Comes to an End

Bjørn Riis, the mastermind of the Norwegian atmospheric rock band Airbag, returns with his sophomore solo release, 3 years after his debut. It is true that Bjørn has “mastered” the art of atmospheric emotional music all these years as he has been “taught” by the best of the best – Pink Floyd, Alan Parsons, Porcupine Tree and so on. Then again, some of the tracks here could have easily been on an Airbag album, but Bjørn knows better and he also keeps some fine tracks for his solos releases.
