4 stars To be honest I wasn't expecting anything good from Big Red Dragon (2013), latest Sophya Baccini album. I knew here from her bands Presence, especially from their latest album Evil Rose (2008) and that album wasn't that great so I was expecting something simillar to that. I lost Sophya's first solo album Aradža (2009) so I really didn't know what to expect.

Big Red Dragon (2013), released by Black Widow Records last year, is based on William Blake's paintings. Each song represent an image very beautifully represented in the booklet of the CD. The sound on Big Red Dragon (2013) still has a bit og the Gothic influence of her previous band, but this is just a small percent, in its majority the album is Symphonic and full of great vocals. Not just that, the album is filled with guests including Christian Decamps (Ange) Sonja Kristina (Curved Air) Elisa Montaldo (Il Tempio Delle Clessidre) Steve Sylvester (Death SS), Lino Vairetti and Irwin Vairetti (Osanna), Enrico Iglio (her old mate in Presence) and Roberto Tiranti (Mangala Vallis). This make the album has a certain epic feeling.

This is a great album, especially for people who like some Opera kinda of Symphonic prog.
