4 stars This masterpiece is the first disc of the enigmatic and elusive Devil Doll, an Italic- Slavic group, led by the mysterious Mr. Doctor. Devil Doll is the name of the movie " The Devil Doll" by Todd Browning, released in 1936, and are one of the most unknown band of modern music, considering that their appearances can be counted on the fingers of one hand, and that their records have been printed always in very few copies, and now seem to have vanished into black hole... The record in question is part of the prog world, a "obscure symphonic prog " considering the importance of classical instruments, a trademark of the group. This record focuses a little more than half an hour a series of songs ( linked between them) inspired by the stories told in '67 by Patrick Mc Gohan, in the television series " The Prisoner ". The haunting voice of Mr. Doctor, scans the various moments whispering, screaming, choking, as the music plays beautifully and always varied, overwhelming, energetic, majestic, creating a nightmare that appeals to the shocking final revelation . An album obscure from the many esoteric references, a journey through death and despair.
