2017’s Amber Galactic was awarded as “album of the month” in various renowned European music magazines such as Rock Hard (Germany), Rock Hard (France), Sweden Rock Magazine (Sweden), PowerMetal.de (Germany), United Rock Nations (France).
The album also reached high soundcheck positions in other magazines:
Metal Hammer (Germany): #2

When asked about the direction of NFO within the realm of classic rock, Strid explains with a chuckle:
“Most other classic rock bands sound like weed or LSD – we sound like cocaine.”
Amber Galactic was recorded at Handsome Hard Studio in Lund, Sweden. The album follows The Night Flight Orchestra’s two previous releases, 2012‘s Internal Affairs and 2015‘s Skyline Whispers.
