4 stars Swiss-born, Italian-based composer and musician Alex CARPANI has been around for a good few years now. Since his first tentative steps as a recording musician back in 1990 he has recorded just over three dozen albums in total in the format of self-released discs, demos and commissioned works. "The Waterline" from 2007 saw him attaining something of a breakthrough amongst fans of progressive rock. "The Sanctuary" from 2010 is the follow-up to that album, issued by MaRaCash Records in 2010.

"The Sanctuary" is a good example of an album that should have a strong appeal among fans of 70's progressive rock of the symphonic variety. In sound and expression those familiar with the giants of the genre will find many recognizable details, while the overall sound and arrangements also incorporate elements of a more contemporary nature. But by and large this is an album that appears to be tailor-made to cater to those whose heart and soul reside among the symphonic giants of yesteryear, most of which should find this CD to be a pleasing and rewarding experience.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
