Review by Rivertree
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator / Band Submissions
4 stars Ah, finally another new RPI album that completely keeps my attention. Maybe someone might not be convinced with this special genre tag, then alternatively it's a blend of symphonic and art prog if you will, coming from Italy to be more specific. Well, tags are ... tags, not more. Generally makes it easier for us to classify, not more. Helps on some occasions, in some not. Lyrics in native language are a significant trademark in any case. And so 'Uomini Di Sabbia' is my first encounter with NATHAN. Although with reason one can say they should be assigned with a veteran status in the meanwhile. Because the band already was founded in the last century, featuring Bruno Lugaro (vocals, bass) as the sole constant right from the very start up to at present. According to the cover art, the album title might be loosely translated to 'Humans From The Sand', or maybe 'Humans From The Desert', just allowing diverse interpretations. Not a classic concept production, they are emphasising, but dealing with common human being issues anyhow, as it is in most cases.

I'm always inclined to collate this with a string of pearls, when a band delivers all included songs on the same high sophisticated level. Means no weaknesses allowed. That embraces compositional approach and instrumental execution in the same way. Without wanting to give out any (school) grades, this surely is a rounded case, but Piergiorgio Abba's keyboard work makes the real sensation here, if you should ask me. Fatti Non Foste is coming in with enormous groove, you immediately experience how melody and trickiness are corresponding within their songs. A sing along tune somehow, most certainly if you are of an Italian origin. Heavy guitar riffs on the mid-tempo purposed Mononoliti then. Symphonic string patterns are striking, this has a bit of ballad too anyhow. Let me emphasize once again that I find the compositions very appealing, the more I listen. Another hint wanted? The propulsive multi-varianted Delirio Onirico comes next ... aso ... aso. 'Uomini Di Sabbia' offers more than sixty minutes of cool prog music in a typical Rock Progressivo Italiano vein. All summed up: this is something exceptional, essential, you should not miss, a fabulous album.
