3 stars EVELINE is a music project from Bologna/Italy - wrapped in mystery - almost nothing is known about the four musicians behind. This time offered with a cosmic packaging their new album is a very atmospheric one. 'Alpha Omega' appears full of captivating songs provided with alternative as well as space and even kraut touches. It's rarely given that they really let it rock, but the guys definitely try to implement this in between, just check out Last Time At Alpha Centauri for example.

They start with a strong monotonic feel on To Kaluza's White Quasar - a simple guitar riff here, vocals remind of Thom Yorke there, somehow fascinating anyway. The groovy sections of She's From Mars attract my attention, Terrible N.1 is something difficult to pigeonhole due to tribal drums, weird organ and vocals - definetely provided with an avant touch. Then you can detect cool guitar riffs on Little Comet - overall piano, organ, samples are extensively used on this production - well thought out with care.

I would qualify this an extraordinary New Art Rock album, a fine blend of various music influences. Sometimes reminiscent of Talk Talk, Gazpacho and Radiohead 'Alpha Omega' is partially minimalistic - offered with a wonderful melancholic undertone on the one hand ... and enough trickiness as well to consider this entertaining, a good prog album which deserves full attention - 3.5 stars.
