5 stars The music is a composition of strong emotions, especially if you appreciate Progressive Rock, the genre in which the artist feels free and "naked" in experiencing their feelings into sounds. There is one who rides the genre on the waves of others' success, remaining tight to certain stereotypes, and there are those who are carried away from the heart and mind, maybe even into the paths never discovered before. Alfio Costa and David Guidoni are the Daal (from Bergamo) and those who follow the Italian Prog scene, already knows the caliber of the characters in question. To accompany the two artists there are special guests, such as Guglielmo Mariotti (The Watch) on vocals and bass, Ettore Salati (The Watch) to the sitar, Bobo Aiolfi (Tilion) on bass, Alessandro Papotto (Banco) on sax, Salvo Lazzara (Pensiero Nomade) on guitar and Riccardo Paltanin the violin.

"Destruktive Actions Affect Livings" continues the discussion undertaken with the debut album in 2009 titled "Disorganicorigami", running the sensations almost on the same track. Having to deal with musicians who are part of the DNA Prog, inevitably their entire musical culture is to show where in every single song, also passing through psychedelic style Pink Floyd at the New Prog and so on and so forth. Character and musical culture collide to give life to a work definitely difficult to memorize, but thit makes you think and excites. The artwork is obviously by Davide Guidoni.

The spatial two minutes of "The Redroom" enable to predict what one will encounter, thrilling and fantastic emotions, thanks mainly to the electronic equipment. Interlayer between growing and thoughtful pauses shakes the psyche of the listener, who is accustomed to Prog Psychedelic, has something to think about, otherwise the journey becomes steep and complex as in "Anarchrist." Daal flies high, between the cosmos and the border of the imagination. Investing time and money today, 2011, in such operations has something masochistic, because the society with 'bite and escape' rules, leaves no way to any other alternative business, for this "Destruktive Actions Affect Livings" in the eyes of the fans of the genre takes on a critical bombast, while the daily listener may encounter difficulties of acquisition. This is obviously not interesting for the duo, who launches headlong into the music that fills the mind. Psychic soundtrack, introspective moments, walking inside 'myself", game of feelings, fear, grief and amazement, basically a game in which no sound will come across every day.
