3 stars Third album by Italian outfit is pretty weird release, but with many good qualities.

There are many elements in their music which is kinda strange - the slow, synth and keyboard driven passages which more than often will make you think about new age, the cold sound of these various layers of synths and keyboards creating a sort of alien mood; the Pink Floyd influences and moods which suddenly unfolds when the acoustic guitar, bass and drums are given room to maneuver in; and thedeep contrast between cold synths and a raspy, dark and yet oddly distant vocal style.

Minimalistic themes in slow compositions dominated by multilayered and often majestic-sounding synths is the name of the game here, with piano and vocals as regular additions while the guitar get to serve some mellow, acoustic psychedelic licks almost as frequently. Bass, percussion and drums are added to some tunes or segments of these, giving these a tinge of Pink Floyd in sound, albeit a cold sounding version of their music.

Not music for all and sundry, but fans of space rock mixed with new age and minimalistic music might want to check out this one; and same applies for symphonic rock fans to some extent.
