4 stars I got this on the recommendation of a friend whose musical tastes parallel mine very closely. He rarely misses when it comes to introducing me to new bands, and he hit it right on the mark with this one. This band caught me on first listen and just refuses to let go.

There is quite a diveristy to Narrow Pass' music. Lots of keyboards, multiple guitar lead riffs and some nice recorder work. For me, the real standout track is The Lake, which has strong Camel influences.

One thing that haunts me about this band: I cannot help but hear a really strong similarity between the male singer on this effort and Bernado Lanzetti, who sang on one PFM album (Chocolate Kings). The resemblance is rather haunting, and a big feather in the band's collective cap, IMO.

Fans of Italian (or any!) symphonic progressive rock should revel in this band's lone release. Long may they grow and prosper. There is always room for more in the symphonic vein!
