FIVE THOUSAND SPIRITS, a secret quiet well hidden in PA's archives, is by far one of my best findings in my recent search for "obscure" (meaning unavailable or really hard to find, although this band is available in I-Tunes), Italian Prog/electronic albums. From the moment I played this 1995 " A Tapestry For Sourcerers", I immediately detected the unique and yet almost invisible touch of the talented Stefano Musso aka Alio Die.

Five Thousand Spirits is a music project/entity and in this, their first release, feautures the collaboration between Stefano Musso, Raffaele Serra, and Claudio Dondo (Runes Order), who abandoned the project after this release.

Runes Order's knowledgeable followers will also feel at home, but for any new comer, this is "virgin" territory and to be honest one of the best "prog/electronic" BANDS, I have heard in ages.

Sublime interactions between, vibrant, cosmic, highly creative and emotinally charged atmospheres, fusioned with both intelligent and experimental song writing, enhanced by a flawless performance of an almost all-electronic ensemble, consiting exactly as follows: Raffaele Serra playing synth, harmonium and samplers, Claudio Dondo on synth and electronics and Stefano Muso's samplers.

Trend setting, original as unique, rich in its musical ideas which never cease in offering all kind of creative and enchanting or obscure yet detached envirnonments, underlined strongly with masterful melody lines that simply sound and are GENIAL!

*****5 "MASTERWORK" PA stars!
