3 stars What a simple re-visiting can do!

Originally entitled "Wish I could dream it again...", "Dreams d'Azur" has some new material (like 12-min long "Marea") but mostly there are songs resurrected from the ashes of lame soundproducing and average playing of immature NOVEMBRE's debut. Not much Doom here, but a more obvious step into Prog-Metal territory. Better level of performing and recording (now I can hear some nice melodies and rhythmical patterns here!) and even closer to OPETHic standarts of what one would call Extreme Prog- Metal. Recommended - pretty enjoyable!

5 stars Novembre are one of the best italian bands, and confirm that once more with Dreams D'Azur. This album is a revisiting of their very rare and row sounding debut Wish I Could Dream It Again; only now the greatness of that album is truly showed. What makes Dreams D'Azur so great is the strange feeling, that immediately reminds a confused dream; a feeling that is represented by many beautiful musical passages. Tracks like The Dream Of The Old Boats, Novembre, Sirens In Filth and The Music are really awesome in this sense.

The album objectively it's not a real masterpiece of progressive music, but I personally love it too much for not giving it 5 stars. Recommended to any fan of Opeth and Katatonia.
