2 stars Italian band QUASAR LUX SYMPHONIAE (QLS from now on) was formed back in 1976, and as far as I know, they are still an active entity to this date, which makes them a veteran band at this stage. They have 6 full-length studio albums to their name. "The Dead Dream" is the most recent of these, and was released by Lizard Records in 2012.

"The Dead Dream" is an album, I assume, will have a rather limited appeal. The music may be described as a scaled down, minimalistic version of mid '70s Eloy and Pink Floyd, focusing on slow-paced atmospheric landscapes, but without any complexities, subtle details or other touches of sophistication you'd normally find on a progressive rock album. Apart from fans of QLS, I'd say that this is a CD that might be worthwhile to check out for those who find symphonic progressive rock to be interesting but rather too challenging. Others should approach this production with some caution.
