3 stars This is an Italian trio featuring Michele Epifani (keyboards, guitars and vocals) as the musical brainchild. On their eponymous debut-CD we can enjoy pleasant progrock that frequently alternates from mellow or compelling to sumptuous delivering a lush organ sound and melancholic vocals. In general the compositions are based upon creating symphonic landscapes with analogue keyboards like the Hammond - and Farfisa organ, Mellotron and Fender Rhodes electric piano. The electric guitarwork is sensitive and in combination with the lush organ sound a very compelling element. Although at some moments my attention fades away, the music from Areknames contains lots of strong breaks and captivating accelarations and changing climates. The information booklet mentions many bands that were an inspiration, in my opinion VDGG, early PINK FLOYD, ATOMIC ROOSTER and IL BALLETTO DI BRONZO were the main sources. This is not a very memorable of inventive CD but if you like to dream away on warm, keyboard-oriented prog, this one is a pleasant surprise.
