4 stars Third album of Machiavel and again an excellent one. Mechanical moonbeans is from 1978 and is in the same vein with the predecesor Jester. Machiavel plays a symphonic prog not far from Genesis (Wind & wuthering era), some Supetramp and Styx ideas and a little bit of Queen , specially on choruses. This is a great album and by far among the best in Machiavel catalog along with Jester. The music has some very fine and intelligent keybords arrangements, specially on mellotron, and strong voice of Mario Guccio, the rythmic section is also great and deed a great job again. Some pieces are really a pleasure to listen , like opening track Beyond the silence, the smooth and very attractive slow one Rope dancer, and Rebirth, the rest are also good. All in all Machiavel last great album in my opinion, the next release are more pop with prog leanings. This album along with Jester might be considered among the best from Belgian prog music, and desearves 4 stars without hesitation.
