3 stars Modern Progressive/Jazz-Rock act from Bologna, formed in 2001 as a trio with Cristian Franchi on drums, Giovanni Parmeggiani on keyboards and Alessandro Pedrini on guitar. In 2003 Daniele Piccinini joined the band on bass, while Pedrini quit and Accordo Dei Contrari became a quintet with Marco Marzo on guitar and Vladimiro Cantaluppi on violin.In 2006, just a month before beginning their first official recording, Cantaluppi left and the rest of the crew went on as a quartet and created the sound of ''Kinesis'', an album finally released in 2007 on AltrOck.

The style is powerful and fiery complicated Jazz-Rock with an energetic rich sound, characterized mostly by a solid rhythm section, heavy guitar riffing, grandiose almost RIO- delivered piano and haunting keyboards (synthesizers, organ and electric piano).It comes like a cross between KING CRIMSON, compatriots ASSOLO DI BOGNO, MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA and FROGG CAFE with the band trying to mix tight complex ideas with plenty of isolated jamming solos by guitars, bass and keyboards, while a fair amount of violin and sax breaks add an extra dimension.''Kinesis'' flows as an album of changing moods and atmospheres with smoother parts leaving their place to bombastic interplays, dynamic radical shifts and endless solos.The approach is really professional with the quartet managing to offer a huge sound overall, but present are also some cold emotionless moments along with the obvious lack of any sense of melody.The most interesting moments to my ears belong to the excellent electric piano/guitar battles and the lovely violin lead moments.

A fantastic album for any kind of Jazz-Rock/Fusion/RIO/Avant Prog lover, having a rich, technical and grandiose sound all the way, but a bit emotionless for the rest of prog fans, still recommended with a cloudy questionmark next to a recommendation.
