Prog Reviewer
4 stars I can see why this album appeals to many Italian prog fans out there. This has got to be some of the most insanely intense prog I have ever heard. It seems that the music just doesn't let up, or so it seems. The keyboard work just blows me away (lots of organ and piano, some Mellotron and Moog, a little spinet), and the guitarist spends a lot of his time catching up with the keyboardist. I hadn't heard "Sirio 2222", but it doesn't seem very regarded in prog circles the way "YS" does. Hearing me give such high praise to this album, you'd wonder why I give it less than five stars.

Here's the reason for that: the last part of the album starts sounding a bit tedious to my ears, as if the band ran out of steam after the last few minutes. But I still highly recommend this, but don't get this if you're expecting another soft, gentle Romantic prog album in the vein of PFM or CELESTE. If you like MUSEO ROSENBACH, BIGLIETTO PER L'INFERNO, SEMIRAMIS, OSANNA, and the likes, you're certain to enjoy this (except this is even more heavy and aggressive).

Proghead | 4/5 |
