4 stars An all-acoustic band that really has my interest piqued and heart won over. A more melodic than usual Avant/RIO band from Belgium that include violin, accordian, flute, double bass, and guitar with guests adding piano, drums/percussion, and viola. Delightful music throughout this album though it is not filled with the kind of hooks, rhythms and structures that captivate the majority of prog lovers.

Favorite pieces: the most melodic song on the album, "Roque" (5:54) (10/10); the longest and most diverse song on the album (like a mini-symphony), "Naise" (10:55) (9/10) and the most tango-paced 'minimalist' piece, "Tissim" (5:40) (10/10).

A four star collection of brave, from a tight collective of outstanding musicians. The non-melodic nature of Avant/RIO music unfortunately renders some of this music difficult to access. I would think that anyone who has a solid background in music theory or someone who gravitates toward the cerebral side of music would enjoy this album and music tremendously.

BrufordFreak | 4/5 |
