3 stars Ancestry was a great progressive rock band from Italy (I don't think they are still active) with two albums in their pockets so far. The second offer from 2003 is Discendenze and is a good example of melodic, complicated lush progressive rock tour de force iwith beautiful warm vocals added as cherry on the cake, what else a definetly winner for me. Long elaborated arrangements, with the opening Colori dell'EtÓ Sorgente being the highlight, in places evokes bands such Yes, Camel or italian school PFM or Le Orme. Their is some energic and very well played sections on every tune, featuring top notch keyboards waves and guitar parts. The contrast between softer moments with ones more energic and riffy is done in avery profesional way. Good album with many memorable parts, is sad because they are so unkown, this album is for a good aquisition. 3 stars rounded to 3.5
