Review by seventhsojourn
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR RPI
5 stars The continued stream of exciting new arrivals on the ProgArchives database is like the limitless blanket of stars in the night sky, and from the wellspring of Italian progressive music comes the keyboards, bass and drums trio of Ego. This band is long overdue on PA largely as a result of being one of the trickier RPI evaluations.

They arrived at the villa with a high recommendation based on their previous release 'MCM Egofuturismo', although in all honesty when I heard that album I thought the recommendation must have come from a deaf camel. 'MCM Egofuturismo' is a bit of a strange flavoured Italian sausage, being a rather half-hearted attempt at blending traces of jazz and ELP with 1980s synthesizers and electronics. There's even a drum machine on the album.

However, 'Evoluzione Delle Forme' is a much more homogenous work that differs essentially from its predecessor in being a full-blown Italian Symphonic Prog album. The band cites Le Orme and Goblin as influences, but I can also hear some New Trolls Atomic System. Like a snake that sheds its old skin the music transmits a strong feeling of liberation and I think this is central to the album; as keyboardist Pier Caramel states in an interview here on PA, the band have a 'shared will to tear down certain musical schemes.' Okay, so the ELP influence remains and that's hardly a novelty. And Ego recognise their limitations as musicians - they're dedicated pros rather than technical wizards - but what is important is that they know melody like the Tetley folk know tea.

The album is very loosely themed around the band's own musical growth and it gradually evolves like an unfolding dream. The music is entirely instrumental save for some wordless vocals on one track - think of Focus - and is constructed around fluvial keyboards, mainly organ treated with Leslie effect, and the unwavering solidity of the rhythm section. The one minor quibble I have is the occasional use of keys that are obviously digital but the auxiliary flute, trombone and violin more than adequately compensate for this. It's probably worth mentioning that the music fills just over 40 minutes and therefore contains no filler.

'Evoluzione Delle Forme' will I hope establish Ego as one of the major RPI bands of the modern age and in my opinion it leaves other contenders for album of the year trailing in its wake. Yes, I think it's that good and I don't see it being paralleled in the next two months. Time alone will tell how I feel about it in ten years time but for now it's an instant RPI classic.

3 stars Ego resets with a fine keyboard-loaded instrumental work

Ego are an instrumental trio from Varese Italy which has been together since 2005. They are not your typical RPI band, but after hearing their latest album "Evoluzione Delle Forme" on Maracash Records, it was time to get them on the site! While their earlier material is reportedly a bit undercooked, Evoluzione is a breakthrough for them and a great reason for them to continue. Some of their influences include Le Orme, Goblin, and Metamorfosi along with British prog rock of the 70s.

Ego blend together colorful instrumental pieces which incorporate symphonic, fusion, perhaps eclectic prog and accent the vibrant rock element with flute, strings, and various effects. As the band allude in Torodd's interview they have the challenge of expressing their individual motives without vocals (or guitars), and they largely succeed. Without excessive complexity or flashiness they have a knack for playing with personality. I love how each musician can be clearly heard in the mix without an oppressive production so common these days. Centered around keyboards with a wide array of sounds and textures, there is no guitar as counterpoint. You simply have a fine rhythm section backing this very up-front synth/organ with occasional flute and embellishment. Harpsichord sounds, trombone, and violin all converge of my favorite track, the diverse "Rivoluzione Estetica." The lengthy closer "Stato Multiforme" is another real gem. Here they employ some wordless female vocals that go a long way in fleshing out the base sound, the result is very beautiful. I think they also have quite a "live" sound which is helpful to their approach of performing with personality, to have that feel of improv (even though the tracks are composed) coming through on various tracks. While not a masterpiece in my personal opinion, Ego's latest is very good and an easy recommendation to lovers of instrumental rock and fans of keyboard centric projects.

I really consider this album their proper debut and expect to hear great things coming from Ego in the future.

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Neo Prog Team
4 stars By 2009 the fourth work of Ego was finished and the only thing the trio had to do was to enter the Indy Records Studio in Busto Arsizio and record it.This would happen in March and the album was recorded with the help of Chiarra Bottelli, who provided some violin and vocals in a couple of tracks.However they had no homelabel to release the album and in 2011 it was MaRaCash'es management that decided to pick it up and offer it to the public.

Wise decision by the Italian label, because the so entitled ''Evoluzione delle forme'' effort by Ego was a great improvement over the previous album.Extremely balanced, mostly instrumental and passionate Progressive Rock, that comes a step closer to the likes of the classic Italian sound and is characterized by superb interplays and nice, emotional movements with both Classical and Fusion influences.The closest comparison from the old style is propably CORTE DEI MIRACOLI, a vastly symphonic group, which was clever enough to add abnormal breaks into its melodic style.And that's exatly what Ego had decided to do on ''Evoluzione delle forme''.This is basically a dynamic, keyboard-driven Symphonic Rock album with emphasis on grandiose synthesizers and bombastic arrangements, which are still led by beautiful, melodious textures.The music is often colored with lovely piano lines and delicate flute themes, not to mention the couple of tracks with the good strings executed by Bottelli.They certainly get into powerful and virtuosic territories, when Caramel creates impressive music with his dual keyboard lines, performed on synths, organ and harsichord, but there is also a rare Fusion feeling during these moments.A definite flavor of 70's Italian Prog conquers the whole album and that is certainly a good thing, these guys finally put up some powerful, symphonic-oriented and inspired stuff with endless, interesting ideas.

Among the highlights of 2011.Superb, instrumental Prog with symphonic leanings in the best Italian tradition, following the principles of LE ORME, CORTE DEI MIRACOLI, TRIADE or EXPLOIT.Highly recommended.
