5 stars Saint-Exupéry álma, channels a softer Relayer era YES. Mostly the lighter Steve Howe Relayer guitar parts. Yesterdays references 72-76 YES energy. And I love it. The Romanian band sings in Hungarian. How prog is that?

Saint-Exupéry álma is the Little Prince tale, based on the book's author's plane crashing in the desert. True story. In fact he crashed an airplane twice. But that's another story.

Prog allusions abound. From Rush to Gentle Giant. That said, the music sounds fresh and totally original. I've been spinning this album for almost a year. Keep it in my car. And I love it. Adore the lead singer, Stéphanie Semeniuc. Her vocals shimmer and shine like spangles on wavy water.

Beefy, melodic bass lines. Exquisite guitar melodies. Sonorous, sharp, short keyboards tones crossover into Supertramp territory. Album is a grower. And isn't that the best kind? Top five all-time East-European masterpiece. My lone 2022 masterpiece rating.
