4 stars Very very close to being a perfect masterpiece. I gave it only 4 stars instead of 5 just because they sound a bit derivative to me, but in general this album is excellent. For me, huge fan of Italian vintage prog (PFM, Banco, Le Orme etc etc etc...), this album turned out to be extremely pleasant surprise, reassuring that modern Italian musicians are very well capable to create wonderful music in the vein of old masters. Obvious influences are 70's Italian Symphonic Prog and early Genesis, and if you add a bit from early Spock's Beard - you will get perfect picture of what Mangala Vallis is about. Looking forward to hearing their further works.
