2 stars "Hello there, we're an Italian band and we like ELP". Oh yeah?

I've been delused with APRYL's bio where their GENESIS' likeness was marked and give their albums few spins. I began with this EP which includes only 2 songs and lasts for 28 minutes.First of all I was shocked when guitar and drums were out of each others tempo in first monemts of the record - I mean that's not the polyrhythmia, they've just failed to keep one and the same tempo together!!! :0 Then I heard A LOT of keyboards. Then A LOT MORE. Each time I listened to it again everything was on it place - there were A LOT of different keyboards and not much sanity. Sone jazz-rock- related bits (think of UK),some guitarwork (not remarkable), but mostly keyboards - bombastic and overwhelming.

I'm not an ELP fan. Though this one is not FULLY keyboard-driven record, the amount of bombastism reached the boiling pot for me. Recommended for ELP, NUOVA ERA, LITTLE TRAGEDIES, ARS NOVA, GERARD, you-continue fans and Prog Collectors - the whole level of band's musicianship is not that much satisfying. But a nice effort after all, and I'll definetely listen to their LP.
