5 stars Listening to the the new Taproban album PER ASPERA AD ASTRA, it seems as if you began a journey into an inner world, where opposing rhytms alternate themselves, as in the tumultuous life of a metropolis of the future. In the lyrics you can find the same human conflict you feel in the music, as well as the beautiful cover image, the "Sunset On The Sea " by Daniela Ventrone, best expresses the concept of modern man's discomfort, with which, however, he has learned to live with. I believe, in fact, that the common thread connecting the 9 tracks, although expressed in each of them differently, as in a colourful musical allegory, it is precisely the theme of uman contrasts. It's worthwhile to note the great sax intro to "Nexus", by the guest star Antonio Marangolo, and the rhythmic changes of the multiform and sprawling "Octopus".
