4 stars Thanks Goodness I knew nothing about this album and very few about EDERA when "And Mouth Disappears" hit my player. it was a jaw-breaking experience! These neat and glorious little surprises uplift my day among so many sorrowful news we have to face every time.

What do we have here? An exceptional band presenting a conceptual album well inside the best progressive vein. But instead of long tracks, so common for conceptual albums, this product is composed by a series of short tracks, all linked in a manner that the whole flows splendidly. Everything is nicely decorated by poignant and impressive vocals, completed by majestic instrumentation where guitars play the major role.

The basic tunes that permeate the album are vigorous and ambitious, sometimes weird, sometimes pompous, sometimes delicate and the listener knows what to expect since the first chords of the opening track, 'Emptiness'. En suite, the following songs carry us through a diverse atmosphere ranging from gorgeous dreams to obscure and dark landscapes - and we travel for the 50' plus to reach unattainable worlds and impossible grounds. That's the matter that shapes the prog-rock universe, folks!

'Bumps', 'Grains' and 'Cut' are per se wonderful tracks but it's hard to separate them from the entire work, it's more than valuable to check this album as a real plain and flat song. Also noticeable are the almost accentless vocalist singing in English and the overall adequate production; and so many moments and parts to remember: the choir, the keyboards, the solos (voice and guitar). Brilliant!

I shall refrain myself to label "And Mouth Disappears" as a masterpiece - time will say if it'll last; for now, a more than excellent and recommended addition to any prog music collection.
