Mirage biography
MIRAGE is classic Italian prog with many dynamic changes and expressive playing. There is plenty of intricate soloing and playing in the Italian symphonic prog style. With some BANCO members as guests, "Frammenti" is a masterpiece of Italian progressive rock. Majestic album, full fineness, melodic and instrumental richness.

Review by seventhsojourn
Special Collaborator RPI

3 stars There are several bands called Mirage in the ProgArchives database. This review concerns the Italian symphonic band of this name that in 1994, and in the best traditions of fellow Italian predecessors from the seventies, released just the one album before disbanding. One of the band's keyboards players (two keyboardists and two percussionists feature here), Guiseppe Iamperi, has subsequently worked on a number of projects under the name of ''Mistheria'', including guest appearances on albums by Bruce Dickinson and Swedish power metal band Winterlong. Information on what became of the other members of Mirage is at best sketchy.

The music on ''Frammenti'' has shades of UK prog giants like Genesis and Jethro Tull, and of countrymen Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso. In fact, there's a dedication to Banco in the album's sleeve notes and guitarist Rodolfo Maltese even makes a guest appearance on ''Il Suono Del Tempo''. There also seems to be a bit of a Spanish influence here and there on the album, like the acoustic guitar work on ''Il Giardino Del Re Giullare''. Overall though, Mirage sound like their RPI contemporaries Malibran, especially on opening track ''Madre Dei Pensieri''. Like Malibran, these guys rely quite heavily on flute, and fans of the instrument are well catered for here thanks to Walter Cimoroni. He's also the lead vocalist and sounds a little like PFM's Bernardo Lanzetti, though his voice isn't nearly as gruff.

''Frammenti'' is a thoroughly decent album, fairly light and melodic, although I realise that comment will put many readers off. It also seems to be quite an obscure album given that this is only its second review here. I guess it will appeal mainly to RPI fans that have already delved deeply into the subgenre, so it's likely to remain quite obscure. A very solid 3-star album nonetheless.

Review by ZowieZiggy
Prog Reviewer

4 stars A one shot work for this Italian band. I must say that this album sounds very original. It has all the ingredients that we all like in the Italian symph prog, plus a special flavour I must say.

The band shows some aggressive aspects in some songs (like the opener for instance). Vocals are very good (but this is another feature of the genre). The use of flute adds of course lightness in the compositions and you'll hear quite a lot of it here. Since, I really like this instrument, I can only applaude.

One has to recognize that even if most song are shortly formatted (only one song over seven minutes while the other ones are around five), they are usually complex, with several theme changes for most of them. Just listen to "Prisma" to be convinced. From soft to rock to soft again. Extremely pleasant.

But the nice journey through brilliant music goes on and on. Some classical moments are mixed to the most beautiful guitar riffs and the explosion of rhythms can then take place. So is "Il Suono del Tempo" : another very powerful song which will seduce the listener very easily. "L'Eco dei Sorrisi" is more straight-forward, almost poppish and catchy.

"Il Giardino del Re Giullare" is more difficult to approach.The longest song of this album is not as powerful as the other ones. Weird vocals and somewhat improv style. Fortunately, "La Cose del Nulla" will bring Mirage on track with their beautiful music again. Splendid and so delicate keyboards. Another highlight. So pure. Sensational, really.

"Illusione" is a sad moment. It is already the last number of this great album. A soft acoustic one featuring some nice ... Spanish-like guitar. Very quiet song to say goodbye to "Mirage". It is now time for you to ask yourself : was it real or was it just a mirage ?

There is only one thing I have to lament about : the lenght of the album. Less than forty minutes ! When an album is over-extended and stuffed with useless material, I am the first one to say : "cut, cut, cut". But when such maestria is featured, such creativity showned I just want more.

There is even a bigger regret : this is their sole album. How much I would like to get some more from "Mirage". A pure jewel, really. Highly recommended. Not only to Italian symph fans; but to any beautiful and sensitive music lover.

Four stars.
