Tale biography
Italian outfit TALE is the creative vehicle of one Michele Tale, of which little is documented today. For the one album issued under this moniker he brought with him several musical companions. Most of them played in Italian outfit ZAUBER, a band Tale himself briefly was a member of. Due to that many regard Tale's sole production as an unknown part of ZAUBER's discography, even if the stylistic question in this case have stronger resemblances to the efforts by artists such as CAMEL and Anthony Philips.

The sole production of this project, ''Senza Frontiere'', was issued in 1994 on Italian label Kaliphonia Records.

3 stars Ok, first thing I'll do here is confuse you. Right now we have in our neo progressive subgenre an Italian band called Tale Cue, a Multi National band called Tale and another Italian band called ... yes, really: Tale. When I bought this album I was convinced I had bought something by the Multi National outfit but it appeared it was the one just recently added here, the Italian Tale. Somehow they all play neo prog apparently. I was sure this band did so too because the music on this album sounds surprisingly much like Edhels' excellent release from 1988 called Still Dream and that album is 100% neo prog.

This is the delicate, dreamy style I can appreciate a lot at times that is when I'm in the mood for it. The music is serene and restrained, the main difference with Still Dream is that this is an 80% instrumental album where Edhels' pinnacle is 100% instrumental. The few songs on this one we can hear vocals is when Liliane Bodini does her job. Also her voice is serene making this release a modest album.

When you like this kind of music it's highly recommended but that's up to you. The stream song In the Rainbow's Blue gives a pretty good impression of what you can expect. First track Andromeda Raptus is the highlight for me but not all songs are equally great and so I will have to limit the score at three stars for this album (3,2). Nice hidden gem.

Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition. and to NotAProghead for the last updates
