4 stars The debut album from this Italian band.

This band with the impossible long name delivers an hour worth of RPI which is both complex and beautiful at the same time. The music is very much RPI, full stop. PFM, Banco, Biglietto, Le Orme... well, you get my drift. La Coscienza Di Zeno's brand of RPI is not as hard as many other RPI though. It is more darkened melancholic than most other RPI bands though. Some King Crimson influences is also creeping in here. Both piano, flute, keyboards and guitars is used to great effect on this album. The vocals is great.

I have noticed that other reviewers has stated that this album is a grower. I agree with these sentiments. This album has risen a lot in my estimations after some nights sleeping on it. This album really creeps does it's magic even when not listening to it. That for me is the hallmarks of a great album. The melodies here are not immediate hits, but they are still great.

This album is not one of the best albums of this year, but it is still a great album from a band which surely is one of the greatest talents in the RPI scene.
