3 stars Atila's second album is a change from their debut album. The debut album was basically a symphonic prog album. On Reviure, the emphasis is on space rock though. Some of the music is also pretty jazzy and avant-garde at times. The interplay from the debut album is still there though. Atila has not left symphonic prog behind either. Let's say they have branched out and developed.

The four songs are average around ten minutes long and leaves a lot of space for improvisations. To this extent, this album (and Atila itself) is rooted in jazz. So far, so well.

I should had loved Atila......... and to a certain extent, I do. I admire their skills and their musical philosophy. I wish there was more bands like Atila. My problem is the lack of truly superb songs from Atila. They don't have one. That's their problem. They are weaving away with guitars and keyboards without really kicking in with anything which makes me dream, float away or even stop up in my daily life. There is not even anything magic with this album. Just an excellent Spanish band whose interplay is excellent, but who does not makes my heart string sings. As simple as that. I like this album, but that's all. But I do not think it is an excellent album. Of their two albums, I still prefer the debut album.
