4 stars How can mere mortals make such beautiful music! If you've heard Moongarden's previous two albums and liked what you've heard, then do yourself a favor and have a listen to "The Gates of Omega". I admit I was skeptical when I found out that Riccardo Tonco (who sounds just like David Sylvian and has a beautiful voice) was no longer on vocals. Yet I was pleasantly surprised by their new vocalist Luca Palleschi, who does a superb job. To be honest, the lyrics are very sparse, leaving plenty of room for sounds that are out of this world. This music is simply magical: dreamy, atmospheric yet so tight it rips you apart at every turn. The musical phrases and movements are hypnotic and the production impeccable: even through a pair of mere headphones you can actually feel the bass through your body (never thought this possible!) This is Italian prog at its best. For me a 4 stars
