3 stars Pito Costa was the undisputed leader of Pi2 and through his career he was always shaking the line-up of the project, depending on the needs of its release.Thus, for the recordings of the second album ''Dema sera un altre dia (Tomorrow's another day)'' only drummer Lluis Ribalta remained stable in the line-up.Meanwhile Costa had strong links with Fidel Vazquez's Unoma and several members split their time between the two groups.So, the new formation included Alex Warner on vocals, Juanjo Verdu on guitar, while even Ribalta would spent some time with Unoma in the future.Bubu King on acoustic guitar, Quim Oller on flute and Sergi Sala on bass completed the line-up of the album, which was recorded in 2000 at Estudi 84 in Barcelona and released in 2001 on WarnerMusic.Producer David Casamitjana appears as the eighth member of the group.

Along the principles of the previous release, the sophomore work of Pi2 continues in an atmospheric, highly melodic Symphonic Rock vein with great melodious textures, delicate symphonic soundscapes and excellent keyboard passages, sometimes the whole mood reveals a nice folky color.By far the self-titled track is the definite reason to buy the album.A 26-min. progressive opus with both British and Spanish Prog influences and series of intricate moves, lovely interplays and harmonic themes.The flute-driven lines are close to 70's Spanish legends GOTIC, the nice keyboard and organ washes scan the music of GENESIS and MARILLION, while the electric guitars have a certain CAMEL inspiration.The few vocals appearing are all sung in English.Very consistent, easy-flowing and fairly tight piece of majestic Prog music.The four remaining tracks still move on the path of Neo/Symphonic Prog with light Latin touches in the more Fusion parts, highlighted always by Costa's diverse keyboard work, the whole thing reminding of Brazilians TEMPUS FUGIT, but another man who shines during these cuts is guitarist Juanjo Verdu.Very delicate, memorable electric melodies as well as some fine solos appear in every track.Singer Alex Warner will again hold the microphone in the last track, the AOR-friendly ballad ''The end'', where the most obvious influence is PINK FLOYD, as the guitar work becomes quite mellow, extremely melancholic and deeply emotional.

Add another solid album in Pi2's discography.Rich, melodic and challenging Symphonic Rock with respect to the masters and a nice mix of symphonic soundscapes with more Ethnic-rooted aspirations.Strongly recommended...3.5 stars.
