4 stars Experiment Successful !

I appreciated very much the first FROST* album "Milliontown", but there was some incertainty that in EMA seem to disappear.

Now the band has more personality and balances together neo-prog melodies with hard attacked rythms and guitars in a melting pot which brings out to the listener only great music. Every single track is beautiful, intense and well singed and played. Jem Godfrey is the leader and the major composer, but he has joined together very talented musicians!

Above all...We know John Mitchell as a very good guitar player in Arena and Kino, and also in this album he performs astonishing guitar solos, enriched with feeling and complex technical aspects, but he isn't new to good singing performances even if in chorus or as main singer.

Some interesting notes to my opinion: the femal voice is great, catches great attention and emotion, and renders the first track a great one. Really a great one.

Even if all tracks are worth of notice, I think that "Saline" has a powerful feeling, is very intense and rich of melancholy. Also in this song the singing part is almost perfect in its interpretation. Another clap of hands for the other musicians who take part to the project, whose work is permeated with "love, devotion and NO surrender"!

OK. Maybe four stars is too much, but FROST*-EMA give you such great emotions!....
