4 stars Zopp is the project made up by multi-instrumentalist Ryan Stevenson and drummer/percussionist Andrea Moneta and it features other great musicians. The album represents a fantastic ride and its mostly driven by keyboards. The first song on the album is a minute and a half intro filled with different layers of keyboard sounds and it takes us to "Before the light" which is a true prog explosion filled with heavy organ, fantastic guitar and rhythm section.

"Eternal return" continues in the same manner as the previous song and then "Sanger" begins, a three minute mostly jazzy driven song with touches of the heavy sound wich dominates the first part of the album.

"Sellanra" is a atmospheric passage and it leads to "V" one of the greatest songs on the album and it represents a story told by fantastic musicianship and interchange between organ and synth Piano.

"Being and time "is a guitar driven song and after comes "Zero" another tune that represents the main sound and style of the album.

"The Noble Shirker" is the last and longest song on the album and it is filled with positive energy. This entire album is a really great prog ride and it features fantastic musicianship -high technical-quality , it is complete and mature, the theme and the style of the album is influenced by 70's prog but innovative, with a modern touch and filled with great ideas.
