4 stars ECHOES OF FALLING STARS was one of two releases by DAAL in 2011 and i'm not sure which came first but in this installment in the DAAL universe we get another bona fide adventure in to the eclectic and surreal sonicscapes of DA-vide Guidoni and AL-fio Costa plus an army of guest musicians adding all kinds of delicious musical flavors. Unlike most of their all instrumental releases this album has three out of the four tracks containing vocals. While the first lengthy meandering-through-the-prog-universe track only has one segment of vocals beginning around the nine minute mark, the third track is completely a vocal track as well as the Pink Floyd cover of "Echoes."

My favorite tracks by DAAL are the instrumental ones and as a result this was my least favorite album upon the first few listens, but ECHOES OF FALLING STARS has grown on me after many more spins. This album is not totally unlike the others. The general gist for the tracks is a beautifully melodic piano riff that incorporates a plethora of progressive electronic embellishments with the odd drumming patterns and occasional accompaniments of vocals, violin, guitar, bass and oud.

The first track takes us thru prog heaven and back with a constant meandering that ratchets up the intensity to a satisfying climax. The second track "Static Stars," the only total instrumental actually incorporates that cool synth sound found on Rush's "Xanadu" and is the first time i've heard another band use it. The track sounds nothing like that one otherwise but does offer a satisfying electronic sound frenzy that melodically marches on and reminds me of a lava flow of music where some sounds ooze slowly across the soundscape and others quickly skip across the slower melodic developments. It is quite the addictive leapfrogging sonic frenzy.

"Undertow" which has nothing to do with any Tool album was quite the surprise since i find DAAL's vocal songs to be hit or miss. This one hits the bullseye with a beautifully illustrious piano riff, totally cool electronic embellishments and the right on vocal additions of Hamadi Trabelsi. A great sounding Floydian sonicscape that actually ushers in quite well one of the few Pink Floyd covers that i deem excellent, namely "Echoes" of which defines the theme of the album. DAAL is one of the very few bands with the finesse and chops to successfully pull off a Pink Floyd track. They not only are faithful to the original but up the ante by upping the spaciness without anything feeling forced. Another brilliant release from this totally eclectic and unique musical outfit.
