5 stars WOW !!!!

I had no knowledge about this band whatsoever before I read a review of this album at PA. I therefore included it in one of my giant orders I normally place from my supplier.

OK, the band is from Italy and sings in English. The music...... This is one of those albums I instantly like when it starts. The opening of the first tune....... ehh, epic The King Of Memories is bombastic and.... epic ? Yes, that describe this one second short of this twenty minutes long song. Most of the song is pretty much based on neo-prog bands like PENDRAGON and IQ in addition to the usual suspects GENESIS, ELP and YES. An excellent song !

The next song A Memorable Fancy is rather short, but pretty effective with a bombastic opening and some heavy music in the vein of MARILLION and PENDRAGON. The heavy main riff is one I will not forget in a hurry. An excellent song.

The two finishing tracks The Rising Sun and Visions Of The Daughters Of Albionare are both long and full of changing themes. They are both excellent where they venture into the domains of neo-prog, symphonic prog and pomp rock. I guess all fans of neo-prog and symphonic prog will love this album. That means; most of the PA readers. The main instruments is the usual suspects with bombastic tangents (moog, synths etc etc) and some heavy guitars. The bass and drums complete the picture. The vocals are not too bad. They are not dominant in the picture. The most memorable and brilliant parts are the instrumental parts and the band prove that they know what they are doing.

I am writing this review on the basis of not have been listening to this album for more than a couple of weeks. I have put it on my heavy-rotation list and in my MP3 player. I am just mentioning this because I guess this album will grow and grow on me over the coming months and years. Ideally, this review should be submitted by me in one year time. But I cannot wait. You should all get this album.

5 stars from me.
