4 stars Tony Vinci needed almost 6 years to come with a second offer and expectations were high from me, but better late then never, Speaking to Stones released Elements in november 2012 their best album so far and one of the best prog metal albums from 2012. This is to my ears an impressive work from the head of the band Vinci, he put a lot of talent and skills here, he is just magnificent here. Tony Vinci has so far used different lineups for the two albums, the second lineup, featured on Elements, being the most solid and gifted formula so far featuring among others Andy Engberg on vocals from prog metal band Section A , Mark Zonder on drums from Fates Warning, I don't have to mention his prestation here, just listen and convinced yourself. Well ok the album and over all sound is killer to my ears. Complex and complicated passages, where the guitar of Vinci really shine and in duel with the keyboards the result is awesome. 5 pieces all of them long, elaborated where the prog metal elements are all over, each musician really did a great work. I don't know why this guitarist is so unknown world wide, because to me is one of the best I've hered from prog metal zone, is skillful has a great tone on guitar and above all his ideas, specially on this release is excellent. Speaking to Stones needs a far more recognition then has now, really fans of the genre must discover this band and specially Elements, one of the best prog metal albums from 2012 for sure. Easy 4 stars for this little treasure.
