4 stars Definitelly IZZ is one of the most pleasant and valuable American bands in today;s progressive world!Thay have already some beautiful albums released,and I am sure a solid base of fans,because their live activity,even not too intense,is at least regular! The albums are self released at their own label and with a better distribution and a solid label behid they would have had a more wide recognition at a higher level !They are simply competent,gifted to deliver a serious musical "offering" to the good prog lovers!This THE DARKENED ROOM is a trully complete album,a very mature one which must put IZZ in the Pantheon of VERY GOOD prog rock bands worldwide!Everything is so well done,starting with the superbe texts and the worked,elaborated and mature melody lines!CAN'T FEEL THE EARTH is a true masterpiece ,with it's 20 minutes timing ,divided into 3 distinctive and separated parts,a central highlight of the album!Sensational inspiration to compose such an inspired moment of true magical touch!Great vocal armonies and majestic musicianship!All the other songs are so inspired and this albumis the fruit of some ygood ears of labour for very good and high quality prog music! 4,5 stars and sinceres congratulations for this sure value of the American prog in the style of Echolyn,Spock's beard and other icons of the genre.
