3 stars "Echolyn" rules once again!!

Well actually this is their first "concept-song format" album, based upon one inspiring-even though a bit uneven- song ... its direction is precise but without a great variety of ideas nor any peak of invention! Of course this is my personal opinion, following my excitment brought about the other two masterpieces composed by this "fertile" band in the nineties, those are:"Suffocating the Bloom" (definitively their best album) and "As the world" (a bit inferior but always excellent). But coming to the present issue, I think of an interesting new album, with a few defects...in fact, except on their usual originality concerning their arrangement, the remaining music passages- regarding of their music harmony - are not always convincing!! This original suite is a bit tiring till the end, despite of its compactness; therefore I'm not too much fond of the vocal harmonies like in their recent past...after all this is a diverse album and anyway interesting, so to me it's well worth checking out at least; but I let you listen to it, because I don't want to affect the opinion of their new fans.

Good issue, even though it is not a masterpiece!!
