4 stars WOW!What an album,and unfortunatelly this one is a very underrated musical product !It's unbelieveble to see how a bad distribution and a weak record label didn't had the possibilities to promote correctly an album of such high quality!HELD TO THE LIGHT is a very mature and so well composed album that after an audition we ask ourselves if there is any justice in the world of music?And the answer is so simply and it's absolutelly NO!!! We don't find here any boring composition or a song without personality!The production is excellent and the succession of the songs is so pleasant and nice ,not only a second of feeling that this album has something made to be ina decent time of almost one hour of music!Scozzaro and Brucato are two outstanding guitar players and the diversity of the album is astonishing!African rhythms sometimes,great percussion instruments used,different and challenging tempos and many ways of artistical expression here,that make HELD TO THE LIGHT a very,very enjoyable audition!Unfortunatelly HELD TO THE LIGHT was the swan song for GAMALON,which had their minute of fame in music and let as legacy some excellent albums in fusion style that will prove the tremendeous talent of this underrated American band,in my humble oppinion!4 ,5 STARS for something excellent!
