4 stars Daedalus from Genoa - Italy is a progressive metal band with moderate succes to the public until now. With 3 albums rleased so far, the second offer from 2009 The never ending illusion is by far their best from the 3. From the opning tracck untill the last we have have clear similarity with kings DT, both in instrumnetal passages and in vocal department. Anyway if we can skip of over this sound the same with DT, we have here pretty decent to great pieces. Melodic lines, interludes between guitar and keyboards, good voice combined with in some parts quite complicated instrumental sections, to me this is a winning card. Some fascinating prog metal pieces here like . A Journey To Myself , Perfect smile, The dancers , the longest piece of the album the title track and the excellent instrumental Horizons In A Box are all winners to my ears, good musicianship and overall great sound. Some well known invited guests here like Roland Grapow from Masterplan and ex Helloween on guitar who is also responsable for mixing the album, the vocalist from La Maschera di Cera - Alessandro Corvaglia and the voice of power metal band Labyrinth - Roberto Tiranti. So, all in all I like this album and what he offers, I like the complexity of the piece, with some complicated twists but keeping the melodic lines on each one. 4 stars, definetly solid prog metal and their best album by far, even originality lacks here.
