4 stars Very interesting symphonic prog band from Italy. they have obviously strong influences from a lot of those great 70īs groups that made that country famous among prog lovers (PFM, Le Orme, Banco, etc), plus some hints of early Marillion, and a little italian folk here and there. It is my first entry into the Yleclipse universe, so I canīt compare Trails Of Ambergris to their previous works. However, it is easy to conclude after only one hearing that this is surely a fine CD with great symphonic moments. Those 70īs influenced keyboards are a pleasure to hear, but the sound is not retro per se. There is an interesting and modern feeling on the CD as a whole.

The major flaw on Trails Of Ambergris is the production: it is adequade but only barely. For this kind of music they would benefit with a better mixing and mastering. Still, this is only a detail since the music is very powerful and shines all through the CD. Alessio Guerrero voice is very unique and kind of aquaring the taste, but he is a gifted artist. His guitar playing is also very interesting varying from delicate and melodic to some metallic riffs once in a while. The other band members are equally skilled and sometimes is hard to believe they are just four musicians making all those noises. It os a long CD (over 73 minutes), but there are no fillers.

Conclusion: one damn good CD! If youīre into italian prog music with lots of 70īs sounds then Trails of Ambergris is a must have. I wouldnīt call it a masterpiece but it is an excellent addition to any prog music collection.
