amico di ieri Well, you can find here some good ideas while the band try to blend catchy pop melodies with prog influences and funk but in my opinion the final result is in some way poisoned by an excess of sleek, synthetic sounds and irritating drum machines that risks to spoil the pleasure of listening... Favorite track: Sounds Good.

"Northumbria" is an album full of great melody and atmosphere with production that pleases the ear. Not just pleasing, but memorable.
by Progulator at The Prog Archives

Imagine a vocalist a lot like Chris Rainbow alongside keyboardists like Rod Argent, Keith Emerson, Nick Magnus & Tony Banks and you have AETHELLIS!

"NorthUmbria" is a truly enjoyable album of 80's inspired prog including really well crafted songs.
The melody is the rule here, really easy listening and catchy but still adventurous enough to keep you interested from start to finish. Mr. Hall has also put a lot of effort into the production, as despite this is an independent CD the is sound remarkably good.

On "Northumbria" Aethellis has captured the very essence of the original prog/rock pioneers who soldiered on to help shape the changing face of progressive rock as it edged into the 80s', as well as the many neo-progressive artists who emerged from their shadow like Arena, IQ, Marillion, Pendragon, Jadis, Grey Lady Down, Galahad, and Pallas.

The album is highly recommended to fans to symphonic rock, neo-progressive, and fusion. And anyone with a healthy respect for keyboard driven prog/rock.
