3 stars Narrow Pass was founded in the Eighties, disbanded but reformed and in 2006 Narrow Pass released their highly praised debut album entitled A Room Of Fairy Queen's, a very pleasant and melodic album. It was followed by In This World And Beyond in 2009 and A New Day in 2014. This review is about their second album. Well, on this second album Narrow Pass entitled In This World And Beyond the band still created 76-77 Genesis inspired symphonic rock. Most of the seven tracks deliver flowing shifting moods featuring a tasteful colouring. The music is very alternating, from acoustic and classical guitar to flute, saxophone and violin. But also moving electric guitar work, varied keyboards and a wonderful female voice, along some male vocals. A very special and beautiful song is the folky Silver Lady with Gaelic vocals, instruments like violin, Irish bodhran, tin-whistle and the use of two Irish speakers.

I'm sure this wonderful second album will please many symphomaniacs. Fortunately, Narrow Pass didn't remain another new and promising one-shot Italian progrock band.

My rating: 3,5 star.
