4 stars BREAKING THE SILENCE is a pure musical jewel!Definitelly this album has a special charm and fascinationbecause it's so wonderful and rich in beautiful melodies that it captures your attention imediatelly!An outstanding instrumental album in the symphonic progressive style,witha wonderful production and some majestic musicianship indeed!TONY SPADA is an absolute master of his instrument and proves here his tremendeously huge talent,skills as a composer and performer!It's rare to hear such a brilliantly composed instrumental album without having the feeling to say that something is missing!No way!The rich instrumentation proves that when music is so well done,you don't need the pressence of a vocalist!All he tracks are at such a high level composed -fans of STEVE MORSE or DIXIE DREGGS in a more progressive direction-will dig deep this musical pearl!The omnipressence of keyboards is making the richness of the musical message even more spectacular!The balence between slow and midtempo songs is so well done too and the album has a very complex frame of stylistic compositions.With albums like this,instrumental progressive music has many beautiful years to come ahead!The 50 minutes timig is perfect for this type of instrumental music,and all we can hope is that Tony will have the inspiration to delight us with more musical pearls like this one in the future! 4,5 STARS for a high caliber instrumental album!
