3 stars This is a more mature work than the band's debut "Tilt" and it is certainly an album difficult to avoid. Notwithstanding I think it is not a the level of their first number which is still my personal favourite.

Music is impressive and the skills of the musician unquestionable but that peculiar sypmhonic attidute has (incomprehensibly) gone. Where are the majestic mellotron's atmospheres?

They play professionally and blend the technical perfection of MAHAVISHNU with mathematical knots of GENTLE GIANT and touches of mediterranean folk. Drumming is astonishing as always.

Sadly enough, this album never really grabbed my full attention. Excellent, but a bit too soft and a bit too unchallanging without those memorable symphonic effects of the famous precedessor.

Andrea Cortese | 3/5 |
