4 stars I don't remember when I have downloaded this album and why. I have surely found the link on PA but what is sure is that I have totally forgotten to have done it. Only recently, while trying to put some order in my reviews todo list, I have found this album.

It has been a great surprise. This Charles Roman has given birth to an incredible album. The tracks are slow and atmospheric. The long instrumental parts are sad and his whispered vocals fit perfectly in the music. The main influence, especially in the guitar parts, is clearly PINK FLOYD, but the acoustic "About Today" makes me think to the PORCUPINE TREE of "Feel So Low".

There's a bit of sadness inside, but it's also a good album to relax. The production is not perfect but the overall quality is not bad and the compositions are so good that I don't care too much if the sound is not perfectly clean. Sometimes I prefer it in this way.

My fault is that I haven't given much attention to the lyrics yet. There's surely a concept behind but without the lyrics written in fron of me I need an extra effort to catch the meaning and in this case I prefer spending my neurons on the music.

Even without checking the lyrics, I don't have problems in rating this album with 4 stars. The originality is not its strength, but it's not a clone. It's surely going to finish to my mp3 reader.
