3 stars It's very good CD from Italian Neo-prog band ARCANSIEL. The very beginning evokes COLLAGE and MARILLION in listener's mind...Despite vocalist's accent and the obvious hand-madeness of the whole record, it sounds very good, with surprising saxophone wonderful solos and great guitarwork.Opening 21-minute epic "I'm still searching" leads a listener through a gallery of moods and shifting pictures - can be compared with best Italian Neo acts!!! Other tracks are less complex and of a "songy" nature, reminding me of my favourite Clive Nolan's project - SHADOWLAND!

Enjoyable and overlooked record, non-essential, but recommended for Neo-Prog/ melodic prog/GENESIS+MARILLION-inspired prog fans.
