5 stars Second step of Unreal City,very young band from Parma, Italy. Confirmation of the first cd in all the aspects, but with a natural development and a more mature approach. Now the structure of the music is more coehent,with a better use of all the instruments The center remains the keyboard wizar Tarasconi, who wrotes both music and texts, but Zanetta (finally a girl!) , with her simphonic guitar is now more confident in several fantastic solos and she strikes hard when the music turns into heavy rock, with some punk influence. Pessina makes a great job with his bass, often rised to the top level with some great solos. Drummer Bedostri (that left the band after the cd recording ) , is again the center of the rithm with a perfect level of measure.'' Il paese del tramonto '' is a concept album that describes the onirical elaboration of a love murder. Texts are deep and sometime difficult to understand without a good knowledge of the band. It is a pity that the foreiners will not enjoy this second side of Unreal City that is as important as the the music. Best tracks :Oniromanzia,Il nome di lei, Schermi di pietra, and the final suite Ex tenebre lux, most probably the best piece ever in UC production. No need to say that expectation around this very young band (less that 23!) is rising sky high, as they are already now at the top and they just reconfirmed the amazing quality of debut album. Are they the new kings of modern prog? For sure they already are at the top of RPI. 5 stars of glory....
