2 stars I am moving to another type of music but as I have done a lot recently I take an Italian record with a very nice cover picture of a band which name seems Indian. Oxhuitza is both the band's and the record's name and it's the debut album of the band from this year. On the record we can hear Luca Bassignani on guitars, Rossano Villa on organs, Carlo Barreca on bass and flute, Christian Giannarelli on drums and Gabriele Guidi on piano and organ.

What drew me here was honestly the cover which was so amazing and there are som features on this record I like. Partially the organs and guitars make a powerful flow with melody. A great plus is also the flute. With those ingredients this could be a great record. But something's missing!

This don't affect me. The music feels invisble or a bit poor. I don't challange the musicians crafts but I can't help missing a singer which could have added vocals about some mystical themes. For me melodies also are quite important, so I most say I miss them. Furthermore my taste thinks the guitar sound is too heavy and that's not sympathetic for me. I understand I am fastidious but why like something just because I prefer to like than dislike?

I found this lame and uninteresting and this is not how I want prog to sound. But other's have liked it so perhaps you're the next human being to like it! Show us your opinion. My rating will be TWO stars. That's perhaps a bit low but I can't give it three.
