4 stars The return of the son of King Crimson.

KOMARA formed by the genial Pat Mastelotto alongside David Kollar and Paolo Raineri first release, same name, 2015, best referential aside from the obvious King Crimson one , the 1995-2003 years to be specific, holds in its drummer and his vast collaborations and ensemble works experience, its main ingredients to make this album highly explosive as everything he touches or is involed with.

Having witnessed how he is able to make his fellow musicians, whoever they are, go beyond themselves, is something that still marvels me and certainly is worth watching.

Anyway back to the music. KOMARA's "KOMARA" sets itself apart by the up front raw, heavy handed, experimental music composition they deliver, as relying on Raineri's trumpet as main light on most of its songs.

If you can imagine a late Miles Davis playing alongside the heavier version of the King, tainted with Porcupine Tree's polished chaos, with all the balls of the RiO's first bands and sheltered by Mastelotto's guiding hand, you might get a more or less accurate picture of what to expect from this new PA's eclectic prog inclusion.

Easy **** 4.5 PA stars.
