3 stars This CD is a project from multi-instrumentalist Corrado Sardella with the use of three guest musicians. This fine album has strong hints from mid-Genesis, Marillion, Clive Nolan and the Japanese progrock (Mugen and Deja Vu).

1. Antiche impressioni Part 1 (12:07) : After a church organ-like intro, the music turns more into a lush and often bombastic keyboard atmosphere along inspired vocals and some very beautiful pieces with electric guitar.

2. Antiche Impressioni Part 2 (11:20) : First a wonderful classical piano intro, then the sound of dogs and sheep between orchestral keyboards. The final part contains again bombastic keyboards and splendid wah-wah guitar, a great conclusion!

3. Antiche impressioni Part 3 (15:40) : This longest composition features many breaks, shifting moods and soli on guitar (fiery) and Mark Kelly-like synthesizer runs ( and wonderful work on piano and Mellotron). In the end sensitive acoustic guitar and a fluent rhythm with great play on the keyboards.

4. Sorge il sole (6:18) : Here again the sound of animals, this time from seagulls. Then dreamy vocals and soaring keyboards, followed by a fluent rhythm with a warm bass sound and catchy synthesizer flights.

This CD sounds beautiful with great work on the keyboards. If Doracor works a bit more on the maturity of the compositions, on their next CD this band will gain 4 stars!

3 stars This "Doracor" album sounds more as the one of a band than the two prior attempts, even if there were always guests invited.

Actually, even if it is the work of a multi-instrumentalist, my fave moments are the vocal parts of "Antiche Impressioni - Part I which are truly related to the great Italian symphonic tradition. And you might know that I quite appreciate this genre.

In terms of music, the main streamline remains ELP, but it is combined with fine guitar (like in the first movement). This album sounds much more melodic and catchy than its two predecessors. It is less pompous and is rather charming at times.

IMHHO, this is the best "Doracor" work so far (but I wasn't really laudatory about the debut and the sophomore albums). Of course, it doesn't sound fully original: on top of evident links with ELP, Tony Banks (while they were four) is also a guide for the music displayed here (second movement).

The third part of this "Antiche Impressioni" is again more diversified mainly thanks to the very good guitar job performed. The interplay between the lush keys and the great rhythmic section is really enjoyable. This epic (over fifteen minutes) offers lots of different moods: from heavy keys to the most pastoral and tranquil mood. Beautiful Italian music.

In all, I have a good ... impression with this record (but the closing number is 100% Banks oriented).Let's hope that the band will dig in the same direction for their next releases.

Three stars.

2 stars A music that should, but certainly doesn't work with me. All the elements are there, wild keyboard solos, classical influences (baroque I presume would be the most appropriate description I can guess from what I hear), calm, gentle passages, bombastic parts, dark parts. But also average vocal department, drums that are far from being impressive, any lack of stronger melody line (to contradict the darkness here and there, as one can't live on a water entirely, he has to eat bread too). Yet I, in a feeling of responsibility, cannot bring myself to give it less than 2 stars, as even I don't enjoy it that much, I can still appreciate forementioned elements and their impact. Not one me though.
