4 stars Excellent addition to any prog music collection

Superb second album of this unknown prog metal band from Greece from 2005. While first album was an usual prog metal album , their second one is a real treat for prog metal listners. They realy done it with this album named Tribute to life. Ths is a concept double album about a man who is in his last 2 month of his life because he has cancer, yes a real story here , that must be listen very carefuly to understand the core of this unique album. Well now about the music, they are between Pain of Salvation and Dream Theater in places, but also a lot of other influences like, traditional greek music, south american traditional music like peruvian, but the main part of their music is prog metal. So is hard to extract one piece from the whole concept to be the best but the opening track the instrumental Where Everything Began is excellent and shows what strong this album begun and with big surprises 'till the end like Ya Va Illegando El Dia or From East To West , the rest are also very ok. All in all a solid album , kinda surprisingly for me, because they are totaly unknown in prog metal field, and what an album, great. 4 stars for sure for A tribute to life, another example that shows that you don't have to be a big name in prog metal to release a super album - Fragile Vastness done it. Well done guys. We hope, or at least I hope that this is not the last album they ever done. Recommended

4 stars A Tribute to Life is from the Greek band Fragile Vastness. Fans of Pain of Salvation would do well to search this band out. They are not copies but are influenced by Pos. Metal passages with a double guitar assault are interspersed with many calmer parts and songs, many of them very beautiful. ... (read more)

5 stars MASTERPIECE. That's how I define this album. Fragile Vastness does a really great job in this album, you will find that even prog. metal is the base of this album, it takes place to other directions like andine rythms or oriental melodies. Which I love. The History is about a man who gets canc ... (read more)
