4 stars 4.5 STARS!!!! Fantastic second album for this so talented band from la bella ITALIA!!!A giant step forward,to be honest,compared to the already excellent debut album THE MUSIC THAT WILL HEAL THE WORLD!Every track of the album is memorable and the new vocalist is 200 % superior to the very good previous one.Goran Nystrom is really impressive on all tracks,but definitelly shines on HIDE THIS FEELING!He has something that makes suddenly TWINSPIRITS music more interesting than other ordinary prog metal bands!And TWINSPIRITS are not at all ordinary.Au contraire,they have a perfect maturity of composition-which is more than normal,because mastermind DANIELE LIVERANI is "guilty":about the musical ideas of the album!He is surrounded by very competitive musicians,and the whole band has the perfect form of a modern progressive metal combo!The production is huge and each instrument is perfectly mixed,giving perfect oportunities to each guy in the band to prove their tremendeous talents and they offer to the prog metal music lovers something of high quality!THE FORBIDDEN CITY title track opens the album in great style and proves once again that "second time is better!"!!!We have massive guitar riffs from Tommy Ermolli -a heavenly gifted guitar player,sensational bass lines from Alberto Rigoni-a high caliber bass player,some blastering drum tempos from Dario Ciccioni and in the end ,the wonderful keyboard sounds from Daniele Liverani- a true musical genius responsable for other musical projects like COSMICS,KHYMERA,EMPTY TREMOR or the impressive GENIUS-A ROCK OPERA .Above all,the vocalist Goran Nystrom,a true secret weapon,a shining diamond ,a great voice!Without any doubt ,the bet is won 200 %.Sinceres congratulations for such an inspired band,for such a beautiful album ,a true highlight in prog metal albums in 2009!FORZA ITALIA!!!
