5 stars 01. From Under (Excuse the expression) Damn! This introduction is even or false? This is the first question that comes to mind listening to the beginning of From Under therefore know is true! The voice of Bernardo is unusual, somewhat anasalado which only enriches the sound, in my humble opinion. And for the first time I saw a school of the bassist Chris Squire (Yes), Patrick Djivas is a virtuoso of the bass as long I have not heard. The following is a Q melody of urgency and outflow. What then to take the almost silent, and a violin to give it all back leaves from the moorings. The final is a wonderful instrument. Without a shadow of a doubt this band could do music, the final part with low battery and marking a frenetic pace (and copied difílcimente) that gives the tone for violin and guitar and keyboard solos against eating soltoem- soils. Whew!

02. Harlequin A beautiful keyboard starts the song with the bass, and then enter the guitar making a beautiful fingering, enter the voice complementing the song with the battery. Everything has been gathering since the beginning. Bernardo sings with a beautiful entonamento. The beginning is calm, and soon gives way to a sound crazy, (just after the 2nd verse and melody of a calm with vocalizations), a gradual increase in the time of the song in the music involves a pitch full of keyboards and strong, with with the melody of the violin and bass, fully present and marked, some flutes can be heard if the fund pay much attention. Only then enter the vocal track for this part. A completely astonishing passage of stops and returns. A confusing solidification, I would say it is an organized mess for a final beautiful and contemplative.

03. Chocolate Kings Chocolate Kings starts hit! Keyboard and voice a heady melody, hard not to sing along. The chorus then, even more captivating. Soil arrasadores keyboards and repetitive mark the back. This music gives prominence to Franz and his battery, full of rolls, face, broken and bumbos. Sensacional the keyboards this band! Fade out sensational.

04. Out Of The Roundabout The kitchen is welcome to Out Of The Roundabout, total focus of Franco Mussa this track. Then the band returns to its Art Rock, then to make the instruments convensões unified and leave always amazed with the talents of musicians. From now on the way a guitar melody is ultra-fast and the keyboard is a touch almost percussivo the music. The final is a quebradeira alone, almost like a Gentle Giant each is alone, and would at the same time as the mutants' a single person. To finish it in one single moment of beauty in a convention of instruments.

05. Paper charms Paper charms is beginning with a unique timbre of keyboards and a beautiful vocal melody. Many synthesizers around a certain time and the flute back again, a half-moon tambourine gives the rhythm of the song and then .... Pulsating rhythm, accelerated heart violins ... .. What bass! In a crazy rate hikes by the band heard on a masterful, well embedded belíssimamente guitars. The final full of violins still full of urgency and an almost desperate to be expected, almost a hallucination of the way things are slowly returning to its rightful place after we heard one of the coolest records of the movement and Italian prog world.

There is nothing that put this disc here, has significant memories for me and for sure who else to hear it.
