4 stars Italian composer and musician Cristiano ROVERSI is probably best known as a member of the Italian band Moongarden, while others may recognize his name as a member of Submarine Silence and Mangala Vallis. But he's also found the time to establish a solo career, releasing his first solo album back in 1999, the follow-up appearing four years later. Nine more years would go by before his third one appeared. "AntiQua" is the name of this album, which was released on the Swiss label Galileo Records in 2012.

Cristiano Roversi's third full-length solo outing "AntiQua" focuses on careful, gentle moods, with acoustic guitar as the main instrument feature, carefully supplemented by keyboards, synthesizers, Mellotron and organ in various constellations with toned down, elegant and fairly richly layered songs, slowly and carefully developing from an initial frail beginning as the main approach utilized. A dream-laden affair, and those who enjoy the gentler escapades of bands like Camel should probably find this one a tantalizing experience.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
