4 stars Extraordinary prog rock songs from Sardinia, my beloved place in Italy! What more could one want? Since I lhave listened to the album for the first time, it was clear that I had to write about those interesting guys who are officially residing in Bolotana/Nuoro. Now, surprisingly, they are already active since 1994, but I've never heard of them, although I'm periodically situated not very far away in Santa Maria Navarrese. And that also means it took a long way until the debut finally saw the light of day. Some line-up changes occured since the beginning, seemingly not being pressurised in any way they reserved the time to refine their song material, which comprises several live gigs too.

'Il Falso Centro' - I'm not aware of the story behind - probably the album tile is something thought-provoking. Anyway, the music's flow mirrors a high proportion of atmosphere, dramaturgy, empathy. And this should mean a lot to a prog fan, right? While showing a sligthly classical as well as jazzy approach.Davanti allo specchio is a fine entry into the album. Towards the end they switch to a rocking behaviour, immediately leading over to the first extended album suite Il Desiderio. Marco Panzino's strong accentuated drumming attracts attention, in the same way Marcello Mulas' partially slicing metal alike guitar style.

With a dramatic as well as charming way of expression Mauro Mulas claims his due with varied keyboard input. Comprising organ, piano, synths and orchestral string patterns he obviously cares for the symphonic orientation. And finally, if you're inclined to assume that this is an instrumental album ... singer Sergio Calafiura comes in with native Italian vocals to complete a rounded ensemble. Well, currently there's a lot going on, speaking of the Rock Progressivo Italiano genre. While offering fine melodies and an entertaining flow ENTITY turns out to be a real shooting star, this album certainly belongs to the Crème de la Crème.
