3 stars OK this work is well performed and arranged too, but is it a true work in progress or actually is it a work in regress?Don't get me wrong, I have been appreciating bands such as Museo Rosembach or Il Balletto di Bronzo for some years;nevertheless I need to hear something really innovative or anyway a bit original at least, nowadays!!...So a 3 stars score is due to the cleverness of F. Zuffanti alone, involved into such diverse project and -also as a co-founder of Finisterre- his effort is noble.Nevertheless- after all- I like to be honest: I think that each prog band can be (if necessary) a derivative ensemble (the Swedish Anglagard and the US bands such as Glass Hammer or if you prefer in some circumstances Echolyn as well, are a stunning example), but unlike these latter just mentioned to you (and as you know there are also other great bands like for instance After Crying and Isildurs Bane, able to work in progress continually!!), L.M.C are clever to duplicate a lot of "seventies" symphonic breaks-through only, by using a vintage instrumentation, despite of giving their imprinting;but of course this is disturbing me a bit at the end, thinking of the next fact the new attempt by Zuffanti does not represent a true look into the future, because probably his purpose now consists of a very good emulation of the old stereotypes (especially that one of the 70's best Italian Prog genre!!). Finally you can also use some vintage instrumentation, but for me- as a keyboardist- it should be important availing ourselves of a new modern technology,just a little bit at least...but this is my personal idea and- as I don't want to affect your opinion- as usual make your own choice!! know what I think about it!!
