4 stars The last two years has been one long party for all fans of Italian symphonic prog. Some stunning albums has arrived in the scene. Albums from both debutants, new bands with their follow up albums or new studio albums from the 1970s bands.

Gran Turismo Veloce and this, their debut album is one of the reasons I can safely say we have never had it so good, those of us into this scene. Gran Turismo Veloce does not follow the full RPI recipe though. Their sound is not RPI for a start. The guitar sound has more in common with the new British bands. The vocals are Italian, but also pretty much in the Radiohead style. By no means does does Gran Turismo Veloce follow the RPI scene. Instead; they have carved out their own place in the scene. And Gran Turismo Veloce is a RPI band. No doubts about that.

The music on Di Carne, Di Anima is both symphonic and melodic. I would argue; very melodic and very intelligently made too. The lyrics are brilliant. The music is very pastoral with a lot of melodic electric guitars. Some of the guitar solos is really stunning and air guitar inspiring.

In short; this is a great album by all accounts. This is also an album which will grow and grow on the listener. I have a long term friendship with Di Carne, Di Anima.

The party continues.
