3 stars Finaly Mind Key release second effort after long 4 years from last album. Named Pulse for a graveheart released in July 2009 is a little less intristing than first album. They have a new vocalist here Giorgio Adamo, who has a good voice , but nothing very intristing, I prefer 100 time more the voice of Marco Basile the former vocalist. They have aswell some guest musicians like Tom Englund from Evergrey and Derek Sherinian among others. With a new vocalist and a new sound this italian prog metal band tries but not quite succeded on every piece to come with fresh ideas and great prog metal elements as on first album. As I said on previous review of the band , that I expect the new album , now that I have it I'm not so thrilled. The music is a little lighter than on previuos album and only on 3 pieces they shine, the rest are ok but nothing special. The musicianship is ok, nice shifting elements from rough to mellower arrangements, great are the guitar chops, realy intristing on Dead Fame Hunter (the greatest piece from here and among the best they ever done so far), great drumer aswell,very confident on his instrument. The main proble is not necessarly the voice, who done a good job, the problem is they are turning to a ligher and softer aproach to prog metal in places similar in with Seventh Wonder, Empty Tremor or Dream Theater in manner of composing. As a whole not a bad album, not by far, is just less choesive and intristing that previous one , who was a real treasure in prog metal world. This album desearve 3 stars for sure, could 've bean lot better, after all they had 4 years for this album.
