4 stars The buzz.

If one record made noise and rose a debate, it's that one. Some liked it a lot, some didn't understood what it was about. Thanks to Facebook, this trio collected material and served to us an all-you-can-eat buffet of varied taste. Is it coherent?

No. Not really. But that's what makes it enticing! The styles are varied, going from Joe Satriani / Steve Vai to the Flower Kings, to ELP to themes of video games (like Final Fantasy IV); at least to me it sounded like that! Some songs would need more tweaking or could be more catchy, but so did Balletto di Bronzo right? You don't need an immediate opinion on everything, sometimes you have to take your time. And some records like Balletto di Bronzo are gems to some and trials to others.

I didn't heard such a flea market of sounds ever, but it's the whole point of a virtual band. The spontaneity, the unpredictable twists and turns, the lovable short melodies in almost every song and yes, the annoying ones (JussiPussi).

It's a record to savor at small sips, track by track. 3 differents guys from 3 different countries who don't know each other, who won't cooperate face to face, we understand it could've been a disaster, but against all odds, it gelled!

Weird and haunting. A test.
