4 stars Surprisingly interesting product that came out of this Finnish instigated Italian made project.

Italian symphonic progressive rock may not be the best suitable type of music to convey the Star Wars saga with, but the core band making up this creation and their guest stars make a good job out of it. With Hammond organ and symphonic textured keyboards and synths as dominating musical elements, a mostly dark-tinged and melancholy exploration of the Star wars universe is served in a continuous, close to 80 minutes long composition; broken down to 11 segments tied together by sound effects.

Vintage symphonic rock of the Italian school is explored throughout, with brief excursions into territories similar to Sleepytime Gorilla Museum for one track and a lengthier 10 minute long jazzy interlude in two parts a bit into the album - a sort of an hommage to a sequence in the first Star Wars movie if I remember correctly.

A strong production overall; that should be interesting to fans of vintage symphonic rock despite the rather high geek factor involved.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
