4 stars I am becoming very happy and excited when I discover new - high quality - bands, like the Italian Cellar Noise for example. The Milan-based quintet is a very promising new band, and their debut album Alight was a pleasant surprise to me. It includes 9 tracks and all of them worth the listener's attention. The album begins with the 9+ minute long instrumental Dive with Me, which I believe that, will be apreciated a lot by the fans of Progressive Rock. It's a rather upbeat and jolly - in its majority - tune, followed by the excellent 8-minute-long Undeground Ride, one of the album's highlights in my opinion. (This was the first song I noticed and listened to it over and over again). The third song is Embankment, which is another highlight. It begins with a soft and melancholic piano intro, but slowly slowly evolves, and from a point and on, it changes completely. The things I wrote above about the first three songs characterize more or less all the songs in this album. There are many melancholic and soft moments, changing into upbeat and powerful parts, including lots of piano, mellotron and guitars. The lyrics are in English, and the singer's performance is excellent. In a few words, Alight is a modern Progressive Rock album, obviously influenced by the great Prog bands of the 70's, but in a good way. It includes some really wonderful moments, some very talented and skilful musicianship and very good vocals. Well, what more can you ask for? Go for it! You won't regret it!

My Rating: 4.0 out of 5.0 stars
