Prog Reviewer
5 stars In the very few moments you begin listening to this album, all of your life, all of your thoughts and existencial problems just get behind. You are absorbed by an intense atmosphere, summoning all kinds of feelings inside you, from fear to sadness, from love to celestial hapiness. Sometimes you may think you are in heaven, other times charmed in the cosmic eternity, you may even not be able to stop crying... It is, like the most beautifull masterpieces of classical composers, an ode to the Human feeling, a true statement of the most beautiful,the most positive and magnificient things Mankind can do. But it is also a warning, invoked specially in the multifaced epic Low Mass Stars, taking Sagan's quote "Out there in the Cosmos, an inescapable perspective awaits (...) we see your planet in a fragile new present, fading to became an inconspicuous point of light (...) there are not yet obvious signs of extraterrestrial inteligence, this makes wonder wheter civilizations like ours rush inevitably hit long to self destruction.. I dream about it, and sometimes there are bad dreams...!". It makes us wonder, how can we, who can make such wonderfull things, be capable of such atrocities the history shows us ?

It is virtually impossible not to be touched by it. It is original and, far more important, it's... like they put their souls to make it. A true compact epic album, flowing naturaly, from piece to piece. It is, marbellously, a key to mankind soul, a tremendous trip to the interior of your being. Will you be afraid of what you'll find?

TRoTZ | 5/5 |
