3 stars Coming from Milan, Angelo Santo Lombardi is a keyboardist who appreciates Italian Progressive Rock.For this reason he collaborated with bassist/guitarist Gabriele Paganoni and came up with his original material in 2004.His debut was a self-produced work, produced by Alessio Brocca in Lissone near Milan, and saw the light under the title ''I giorni di Eurisko''.

What strikes the listener already from the first listening is Lombardi's very romantic and highly emotional approach in music, highlighted by his work on piano and keyboards.For keyboard/piano lovers there are lots of things to love in this album.From Lombardi's vintage organ sounds to his sensitive piano interludes and the atmospheric synth work.Additionally his voice is great, typical of an emotional Italian singer and close to this of PIETRO RATTO of ATON'S fame.Actually the musicianship has often much to share with ATON'S albums, soft and melodic semi-prog adventures with plenty of vocal parts with a warm delivery but still with some nice instrumental parts.The style is fairly symphonic with a fair dose of Classical influences but also plenty of pop sensibilities of fine inspiration.The drumming though is programmed and a reason the album never really takes of in terms of quality.Paganoni has his moments too and when the space is offered he performs some great electric solos, making the album a bit more flexible.

A new entry, which is more than welcome.If you are a fan of LE ORME and a few accesible tunes do not bother you, Angelo Santo Lombardi's debut is a reason to stay at home and listen to some decent modern Italian Prog with an excellent atmosphere.Recommended.
