3 stars This album is good, but flawed.

What went wrong with it? The answer is the epic (Cygnus X-I Book II). It has one good theme repeated over and over again, resulting in a dull overlong track with lack of ideas. The next tracks are good and redeems the album. Circumstances is a good rocker, The trees is a very well constructed semi-acoustic track, and The last track is an impressive instrumental workout with one of the best guitar solos from Alex, and one of the best instrumental songs I have heard. It is a shame Cinema and Marooned won a Grammy for instrumental song instead of this one. The band did not repeat this mistake again, and ceased writing mediocre epics in the future.

1. Cygnus X-1 Book II (18:04) 4.5/10 2. Circumstances (3:40) 6.5/10 3. The trees (4:42) 7/10 4. La Villa Strangiato: (10:34) 9/10

My Grade : C

Zitro | 3/5 |
