4 stars A slight change of direction......

The previous two Areknames studio albums made me appreciate how good Van Der Graaf Generator was and how good Areknames had copied the best from them and then added a lot of their own identity. In short; I love those two albums. For some reason, it may be called natural development, Areknames has moved away from the overtly VDGG influences and moved more in the direction of RPWL, Gazpacho and Porcupine Tree. In my view; Areknames has lost a lot of their identity by changing their sound. But there is still a lot of VDGG in Areknames. But it is more subtle this time around.

The music is based on a sometimes heavy, chugging electric guitars, vintage tangents, some really good vocals, drums and bass. A saxophone like sound is also present on some songs. All of this potently played. The sound and the songs are mostly dark and gloomy.

The quality of the music is the same though and leaves no doubts that Areknames is one of the best Italian bands around. The songs are still great. The tangents on a song like Dateless Diary is heart warming. This song is the best one on this album. The rest of the songs are in the same class and thereabouts. In short; Areknames has done it again and released another great album.
