4 stars This band is one of my favorite RPI finds of the past 10 years or so. They integrate all the sounds and melodic elements that I love from the classic Italian bands, and mix them nicely with some more neo-prog sounding sections.

The vocalist is not neo. He sings in the traditional RPI style and it is great. Very nice voice. Lyrics in Italian.

But the keyboards really make this album. Sometimes swirling around, sometimes in that dreamy mellotron state, sometimes just piano - but always interesting, and always present. Original sounding compositions, well-developed longer passages, great musicianship. Yeah, this is what you're looking for!

I love me some active bass playing, and that is a little more subdued with this band. I'll let it slide just this once. :) The flute brings to mind some Camel or even Anglagard at times. Really nice touch with the flute.

When I heard this band's debut, I gave it 4 stars even though it was only 37 minutes long. This one is clearly 4-1/2 stars.

Squire Jaco | 4/5 |
