4 stars In Extremis (2013) is the second album of the American duo Days Between Stations. Released in May the album has plenty of celebrities as guest musicians, including in the cover department.

The artwork of the CD, as I mentioned, was done by the Brittish artist Paul Whitehead, that is famous for his covers for Genesis (Trespass, Nursery Crims & Foxtrot), Van Der Graaf Generator (H To He Who Am the Only One & Pawn Hearts), Le Orme (Smogmagica, Elementi & L'infinito) among many others.

In the musical side the album has, besides the duo Oscar Fuentes Bills (keyboards) and Sepand Samzadeh (guitars), many stars. To begin with we have Tony Levin (bass) and Billy Sherwood (drums and lead vocals) in all the tracks. Then we also have Peter Banks, Matt Bradford, Colin Moulding, Ali Nouri, Jeffery Samzadeh, Rick Wakeman, Josh Humphrey and Chris Tedesco. All those guests alone would be able to drag much attention to In Extremis (2013).

On my opinion In Extremis (2013) is a extremelly well written album with absolutelly great music all the way through, especially in 'Eggshell Man' and the suite 'In Extremis'. Fantastic keyboards and guitars are all over the album and Tony Levin bass is also something to pay attention to.

When it comes to the drums, I wouldn't say they are bad, Billy Sherwood did a good job drumming. But, as ALL his producings, the drums sound has his 'trademark', so you can expect the mid 90's drum sound with FAR TOO many effects, specialy in the cymbals. They are really annoying sometimes.

But I honestly cannot say that the aforementioned fact would ruin the album. Not at all. 5 years in the making and you have many good moments to enjoy, specially in the Symphonic Department.
