3 stars Formed in the beautiful city of Piacenza,MINDFLOWER begun their journey to the world of music in 1994 and only a year after their ''Purelake'' album was ready.An album of different sounds and music landscapes through 12 mellow tracks.

''Purelake'' is unique experience of Contemporary Prog music with the band twisting from vocal- driven semi-acoustic arrangements to minimalistic passages,sometimes dominated by smooth guitar,others by piano or soft organ sounds.Artists like MIKE OLDFIELD,STEVE HACKETT or even GOLDON GILTRAP should have been a great influence for the band's mastermind Fabio Antonelli.Female vocals by two singers are excellent,I can't say the same about the male ones.The atmospheres met through Folk,Symphonic and Acoustic-influenced music are very personal sounding,what however slows this album down are some over-streched monotonous tunes,which could have been a bit more limited and the absence of some dynamics.

Nevertheless,''Purelake'' is a very nice and recommended listening for anyone looking for dreamy light prog trips,based more on atmosphere and limited complexity.
