4 stars Listening to this on I can see why there was some contention as to whether or not this should have been placed in the Post Rock or Electronica subgenres. There seems to be a lot of folk and neo-classical elements as well, but the electronica foundations are indisputable. I'm finding the music quite enjoyable. And, well, the political commentary is also quite welcome and a powerful addition. Artists who go out and take the risk of taking moral and political stands are good with me. I really liked last year's Mexico a lot--it's upbeat quirkiness was like a welcome shower in the world of so much heavy music. This one is much more even tempered (to my ears)--kind of like a collection of catchy World Music grooves--Eno, Talking Heads, Karda Estra, Rational Diet, Massive Attack, Arto Lindsay, Les Negresses Vertes strung out on heroine and a whole host of Celtic and French folk groups come to mind from time to time.

Favorite songs: the spaghetti Western-cum-Ibiza cool jazz 1. "Der Mauer" (6:14) (9/10); the slow tempoed neoclassical 4. "A Swift of Flight" (6:00) (9/10); the oh-so-cool, suave but simple blues rock of 6. "Soft City" (2:51) (9/10); the TOE-plays-Talking Heads 9. "Der Harbour" (9:09) (9/10).

A wonderful album of groovin', melodic, background or play-along songs. Quite unlike other prog rockers currently on the scene. Check it out!

4 stars -(This review was written before PA changed Sparkle in Grey from Progressive Electronic to Post Rock/Math Rock.)

Progressive Post-Math/Rock, Eclectic , RiO/AV, Rock Progressivo Italiano and Krautrock with touches of Prog/Electronics (CROSSOVER all in all!). With a subtle political/ecological posture !

Yes! All that happens here, not during the whole album, but in each song! Every second counts, every possible development of a musical structure is explored, without shame and opposite to that with a poignant "punk-like" and "focused experimentation" attitude in their performance and songwriting respectively. These all adds up to the frantic intensity, which wraps you up to high peaks, just to let you "sweet-downfall" from there, to be caught again and again until you are already hooked on and delighted.

Italian progressive band SPARKLE in GREY's, 2013, "Thurdsday Evening" , again, has one of the most deceiving, misleading and un-market wise art/covers one could choose to use with this kind of music. Instead of pointing out more or less as to what really is going on inside this marvel, it LOOKS like an 80's art/cover for a "disco" collection. Deceiving, but unimportant, once you are caught inside.

Again as in their previous effort, the strings (violin) have a prominent place in settling up the more touching and heartfelt moments and also again the "electronics" are just an average part of this effort (not counting that it was "electronically recorded" as any other record, but those were nott mashed up in this category, as the untaggable Sparkle in Grey music is).

Bold, energetic, dynamic, creative, diverse, original and above all masterfully unpretentious!

Sparkle in Grey, sparkles also in high musical artistry.

****4.5 "evolving their sound to new heights" PA stars!

PD: Remember not exactly prog/electronic. In fact everything else and then that!
