Jazz Rock/Fusion

5 stars 109 ratings and 17 reviews don't serve this Italian Jazz/Symphonic band justice. If classified as a Jazz/Fusion album, then it's my favorite album in the whole extensive genre. I'll explain why...

Aggressive at times, but never out of control. Peaceful at times, only to build to an opus of Giovanni's violins and Furio's furious drumming. (Not to mention hypnotic keyboards adding depth to the already dense songs). Despite the rarity of finding this album cheap, every dollar you pay goes towards the infinite replay value you'll get from this musical gem.

Some reviewers discredit the album closer, veering from the flow of the album. Though, after the confused techno-babble, there's melodies recalling previous songs. It's an amazing reprise, reminding you of all the great melodies you may have forgotten. In my take, these distorted reprises reminds me of a bubbling cauldron containing each melody only to be swooped up by the everlasting mellotron. I won't evaluate each song since they all flow into each other, ending (what seems like) abruptly. Clocking in at 37 minutes, you wish it would last just a bit longer. Any jazz- enthusiast or prog-enthusiast would find something special in this album. Hell, anyone would. If you've yet to hear this due to the jazz/fusion classification, LISTEN TO IT. It took me years to finally venture into the jazz/fusion realm, and it sickens me to think I could've missed out on this.

Raccoon | 5/5 |
