4 stars Brilliant first opus

Il Giardino Onirico meaning The Onirical Garden a young progressive rock band from Italy who managing to capture my attention with their debute name Perigeo. Well, this is impressime in many parts, I like a lot what I've heared here, to me is like a combination of spacey prog mid tempo passages a la Eloy with fascinating keyboards with here and there some prog metal elements added, but in the end this is not a prog metal at all. All album is elaborated, quite complicated in arrangements, all is instrumental, minus some spoken words in italian at the beggining of the pieces. The best pieces to me is Utopia Planitia, man this is excellent and high class prog, the guitar and keyboards are awesome at best, the rest are also solid, but this tune in particular is impressive. 5 long elaborated pieces , where each musician know to handle the instruments to create something valueble in today prog scene. I say that every serious prog rock listner must check this band and album, belive me worth every second, and above all the overall sound and arrangements are quite original, har task to achive today.. 4 stars easy and recommended, solid, tight and elaborated.
