4 stars There is nothing much I can add to what my highly esteemed collegues in crime has written about this album.

Yugen is an Italian RIO band and this is their third album. Their basis is chamber rock, but their tentacles expands out in other directions too and also drags in elements of symphonic prog, jazz, zeuhl and RPI into their sound which they presents on this album. The result is forty eight minutes of superb music which really twists and turns throughout these far too few minutes. This album should be viewed as one symphony and not as the usual pop/rock formula of songs. Hence; I will not point out any favorite song here. OK, the title track is outstanding though.

This album just proves why Yugen is one of the best RIO bands at the moment. This album is also a good entry point for those of you who want to branch out into avant-garde/RIO. In short; this is a great album and it has got a well deserved reputation.

4 stars
