Master of Ceremony



3.65 | 11 ratings

From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars I have heard twice a web copy.

BAD THINGS IN THIS WORK: 1)This is a one man s band.So you loss the versatility of a multi musicians band. 2)Here we find more sound effects than instruments.(it seems so .Its obvious in drums) So i miss here the power of real drums and guitars(may be they are real but without power at all) 3)Very influenced by early and middle Genesis. żIsn,t enough with the best tribute groups The Watch and Citizen Cain? 4)The sound engineering and mastering seems to be amateur.

GOOD THINGS: 1)Very good composer.Songs(anyway Genesisesque) are good.And they are some of the original Rock Progressivo Italiano. 2)Very good keyboardist .I read in his biography he is a "maestro" in the piano playing(sine 16 years old).

So not a Master Of....prog. rock( in this album yet) Not a Master of Sounds. Not a Master of originality.

But a Master of Ceremony (ha).

If he could bring some good musicians i am sure ,this will be a very good neo-prog band...but please don,t remain alone...

3 stars ..yet.
