5 stars Egyptian Kings with their debut made a classic and simple defines what progressive music is about: transcendental feelings and a fusion of different genre influences that when come together create a unique sound that is not similar to another band. One thing that i still ask to myself is if the band had even the slightest idea when they were in the process of composing and recording of how powerful Almagest is, because, this is a very beautiful and a absolutely complex serene system of space music that doesn't overthrow the senses but instead subtley alters the preception of the entire range of sounds, images and emotions your experiencing at the time. Pale White Dot is incredible and like nothing I've ever heard anywhere else, a gorgeous piece built on the striking contrast between a light sweet synthesizer chord progression in the background, with Ivan playing a jazzy space drum line and Sebastiao with a simple bass line walking through music like a traveller and then Artur flute sweeping melodies over the whole empty spaces left that come and go. And in the last part Gustavo in a layered over- lapped keyboard and Artur playing guitar in a pentatonic melodie making pure magic like the eternal perfection of the clockwork universe. A very quiet-slow album, certainly not for everyone, but one of my favorite music cds of this decade.
