Review by rdtprog
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Metal / Heavy Prog Team
4 stars This is the 5th studio album for the band but they also did some works for various themes albums (Colossus Project) with long songs. The music is led by keyboards in the symphonic style, sometimes a little bombastic not too far from ELP and Nuovo Era. The guitars on this latest are letting the space to the keys, bass, and drums who are high in the mix. The album starts strongly in the first half with some impressive keyboards and bass lines, the band doesn't need many vocals that are actually very brief throughout. The second part of the album gets a little weaker, especially the song "D.I.A.N.A." with a cheap techno sound and a poor melody. The things improve with the next track " Agata Lost in the Mirror Whale" where the guitar for the first time gets out of his shell to take the lead. The last song"Octopus" bring back the greatness of the first half with some complex keyboards lines. This another good release for this band. Those who enjoy 70's music will want to get their hand on this.
