Evelin's Dust is an Italian four piece formation that is rooted in 2012, this is its third effort, after the EP Time Changes from 2013 and the highly acclaimed successor The Painkeeper from 2016. I didn't know about the band but during this first musical experience I got impressed.

The opener New Beginning (6.02) alternates between dreamy and sumptuous outbursts featuring a sparkling synthesizer solo and a harder-edged guitar solo, in the realm of jazz rock. An exciting and dynamic start.

Fierce Fear Family (4:32) contains a swinging rhythm with strong interplay, echoes from Rush (interplay and guitar sound), and mellow work on the saxophone.

Hope (9:03) begins and ends with mellow with twanging acoustic guitar and dreamy vocals and saxophone. In between a fluent rhythm with sensational fat synthesizer flights, a strong rhythm-section and propulsive guitar riffs.

The titletrack (3:38) starts dreamy with twanging guitar and piano, then heavy and bombastic featuring strong interplay, what a dynamic and powerful sound. Then a slow rhythm and cynical vocals, turning into a bombastic eruption with biting guitar runs, propulsive rhythm-section and gradually thunderous drums, how exciting.

Lost in a Lullaby (5:38) is a varied track, first a swinging mid-tempo with fiery electric guitar, then slow rhythm with cynical vocals. Halfway a powerful jazz rock inspired guitar solo, again an atmosphere that evokes Rush and King Crimson (bombastic, dynamic), topped with a sensational super fat synthesizer solo and use of the pitchbend button, wow!

Faintly Falling (4:41) is a mellow piece featuring warm twanging guitar, dreamy piano and pleasant female vocals. Then a slow rhythm with a wailing cello sound and emotional female vocals, what a strong vocal performance. Finally dreamy with guitar and that cello sound, simply beautiful.

The final composition Rain Over Gentle Travellers (9:37) shifts from dreamy with piano, guitar and vocals to a swinging rhythm with outstanding interplay, fat synthesizer runs and a fiery guitar solo (like a heavy Allan Holdsworth), very tasteful and dynamic music.

This review was recently published on the Dutch prog website Background Magazine, in a slightly different version.
