3 stars FJIERI are a four piece Italian band who play laid back ambient music. Lots of guests here including Tim Bowness doing some vocals. In fact NO-MAN is who they sound most like in my opinion. Even though Barbieri and Harrison from PORCUPINE TREE help out I didn't think of PT at all.

"A Reality Apart" opens with some atmosphere before it kicks in around a minute. It settles again as contrasts continue. Some spoken word samples on this one too. "A Big Hope" opens quietly once again then drums arrive after a minute followed by piano. Cello after 2 1/2 minutes and some guitar after 4 minutes. "Ad Occhi Chiusi" opens with some bass clarinet before sax takes over then Italian vocals. It kicks in before 1 1/2 minutes. Not a fan of this one at all. Sax and bass 4 minutes in. "Marchinelle" features spoken Italian words and atmosphere to start. A beat after a minute, some guitar too.

"Breathing The Thin Air" has a light beat as Bowness comes in vocally. Piano and cello later. "Endless" again opens with little going on. Bowness on vocals again before 1 1/2 minutes. A fuller sound a minute later. Guitar 4 1/2 minutes in. "Soul Eaters" has female vocals and the guitar is heavier early before it settles. "The Breath Of The Earth" has a light beat but it gets fuller. A lot of the same sounds and style song after song so i'm being repetitive like the music I suppose. "Lotus Flower" has a beat with piano.

Not nearly as good as NO-MAN in my opinion but certainly if your into the ambient tunes this might impress you. Barely 3 stars.
