4 stars Although in their second studio album entitled "Beyond Storm" the Italian band PHAEDRA don't reserve musical surprises, this band is extremely competent in remake the sound of old progressive rock school (mainly 70's symphonic prog). The work and sonority from this album is full of nostalgic moments, starting by initial and main theme of track 2 "No Crime" with a certain GENTLE GIANT"s swing, passing by GENENESIS clearly influence in track 4 "Phaedra", the overture theme of track 6 "Journey to the Edge of Nothing" with a flute melody in NOVALIS mood and the closing section with a GG Keyboards timbre. Another remarkable moment is the strong rhythm of track 7 " Freezin' Breeze on the People at Ease" which reminds me a jam band in the style of Allman Brothers and some others. My rate is 4 stars !!!
