Edith biography
Mellow Records seems to be a focal point for Italian Neo bands of the '90s. This is especially true if they are of the obscure nature. EDITH is a prime example of this. They may not be completely unknown, but concerning the band itself, there isn't much information to be found.

Drummer Biagio Bisignani, singer Mario Gulisano, guitarist Antonio Moschetto, and bass player Giovanni Scaccianoce got together, and recorded "...A Space Between Ever and Never..." with help on keyboards from Salvo Fiorentino, in 1989. The debut was a rough start. It fell into the Neo realm, but was very reliant on AOR. At this point, they hadn't truly found their sound. The second album, 1991's "Ice," saw a vast improvement. The band was now also comfortable in its Neo-prog shoes.

By 1993, there were shakeups in the band. Franco Baressi replaced Biagio Bisignani on drums, and keyboard player Tony Brundo was added. The third album, "Dreams," became their most solid effort, and was released by Mellow Records. Giovanni Scaccianoce also used this opportunity to utilize a Chapman Stick. Aside from a 1995 live release, "Dreams" was the band's last effort.

As I said before, there is not much information out there concerning EDITH. However, Mario Gulisano has been quite active. Since EDITH, he has worked in the ambient bands Blue and Atmo, a folk band called Sarabanda, and is currently involved in an ethno-world project called Nirmegh. He is also the founder and manager of Darshan, a non-profit organization that produces music festivals in Sicily. Gulisano is much inspired by his Sicilian roots, and says that has always been part of his music.

Edith Neo-Prog

Review by apps79
Special Collaborator Neo Prog Team

2 stars Both Edith and their leader Mario Gulisano were living a prolific and creative period, entering the 90's.Gulisano worked simultaneously with keyboardist Salvo Condorelli on a more New Age path with his side project Atmo, releasing a self-titled cassette on Edith Music in 1990.At the same time his main band welcomes a new stable member, keyboardist Tony Brunzo, and works around a second album begin.Celebrating the CD reissue of their debut on Progressive Records, the Italians eventually put on market their sophomore effort ''Ice'' in 1991, the first CD on their own Edith Music.

With ''Ice'' not much has changed regarding Edith's style, which remains a pretty safe and lyrical Neo Prog, close to MARILLION's sound circa ''Clutching at straws'', but lacking the depth and inner power of the Scottish band.Most of the tracks are long, 7 minutes or longer, but do not expect any instrumental diversity.All pieces are based on atmospheric passages with plenty of vocals, but the thin keyboards and soft piano lines next to the otherwise smooth guitar plays bury the attempts of the band to come up with something trully interesting.Additionally memorable melodies are also absent and the only thing really shining through is Gulisano's emotional singing, very much in a STEVE HOGARTH style.To say the thruth the first half of the album is rather forgettable with mediocre material and downtempo arrangements, extremely led by lyrical moments and lacking instrumental power.Fortunately the second half contains some good moments, like the tracks ''Life'' and ''Dimmer'' with their nice choruses and the interesting melodious textures, although even them are too calm to completely catch the listener's attention.

To my ears Edith were always a band hidden behind secure and non-risky material, stepping on MARILLION grounds, but without having the talent of their main influence.''Ice'' is material written exclusively for Neo Prog buffs.End of story...2.5 stars.

3 stars The second album of Edith named Ice from 1991 is an improvement of the first no doubt about it, here the band find the way in this zone and aswell the sound. Particualry more confortable release then first, more mature, the musicians are more confident in their posibilities, and is all here on this Ice album. I like this more then debute, but with all that is not a fantastic release, most of the time is quite linear in arrangements, only here and there musicians burst with some fantastic parts, more precise the keybords are ok, but also the voice of Mario Gulisano is pleasent. Title track Ice or Afternoons are more then ok, showing a posibility to want more of this genre, good parts good musicianship, but maybe the lack of great ideas overall stop them only after 3 releases. Very unknown band and with the time they got more and more in the undergound. Fans of neo can trace this band and give them a chance, all 3 albums are ok, while is nothing realy awesome or quite groundbreaking. 3 stars again, I like it, not very often listning to this band, but when I'm in the mood for them , they pleases me every time. Similar with another band from Italy from that period named Fancy Fluid.

Edith Neo-Prog

Review by b_olariu
Prog Reviewer

3 stars Edith is an obscure neo prog band from Italy formed around 1988. They release 3 studio albums and then gone into oblivion. No wonder because I see here only one review at first album, no one bother to discover them. The album title, A space between ever and never is more intristing then the music offered here. Typical neo prog release, nothing is outstanding , nothing is bad aswell here. I like the voice of Mario Gulisano, very emeotional, yet not very distinctive in tone of voice. What is not so enjoyble at this release is te lack of diversity, the arrangements are most of the time same , but not bad. I can say is a good debute overall, but without hooks that make an album and specialy a neo prog album quite pleasent. No piece is particualry great, only ok, maybe opening trak Last warning is the most catchy tune, almost 10 min of good neo prog but quite pale in comparation with other albums from that time. So, I will give 3 stars to this release, fairly good but only the neo fans and I think not all of them will enjoy this A space between ever and never.

Edith Neo-Prog

Review by maryes

2 stars In my opinion "The Space Between Ever and Never" is a title that says everything about the disk in subject. In the reality this is the best form than I found to describe my feeling in relation to this first work of the Italian band EDITH, where I recognize the capacity of the components of the band while musicians, however, I think due to this same capacity clearly demonstrated on the track 4 "Playtime" (the best track of the disk) and in some other moments as for instance; in the track 2 "Ever and Never" in the passage that begins about the 4 minutes and 32 seconds, they certainly are capable to produce a better work than this presented in the totalities of these 7 tracks (including the bonus track "Long way of power"). In spite of their influences of giants of Neo-Prog, such like MARILLION and IQ, the music don't present the same quality (except for the already mentioned track 4). My rate is 2 stars!!!

Review by progrules
Prog Reviewer

3 stars After I just wrote my review of Edhels' Still Dream (1988) I somehow had an association with this album by Italian Edith. This album was made 5 years later and is not quite a copy of Still Dream but the association is there with the laid back, delicate style of the album. But what's already a big difference is the fact that Edith has a vocalist (Mario Gulisano) where Still Dream is 100% instrumental.

Also this album's title is well chosen because this one is dreamy at many points as well. But the vocals make a pretty big difference. They are far from awful but don't really add an extra beauty to this very nice album. And another similarity with Edhels' pinnacle is the high melodic standard of the music. This is another very fine neo progressive effort that found it's way to my collection.

Some will be put off a bit by the Italian accent of the vocalists (who sing in English) and in the end it's one of the reasons I will not give it a very high score ultimately. It just doesn't reach the very high level of it's twin brother Still Dream. I gave that one four stars and will have to leave this one at three but it's rounded down (3,4) and yet recommended for neo fans.

Review by Finnforest
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

3 stars "dreams are a little ship at sea, a shelter of mind far from reality."

"dreams" is a very stylish and accessible album of elegant jazzy pop neo-prog music with just a tad of punchy attitude. It sometimes seems too conventional to be a part of a progressive music collection but the more you listen the less you will care. It's very pleasant ear candy combining the catchiness of The Police with the sound of Joni Mitchell's instrumentations during her late 70s and 80s jazzy period. The players are very talented but for the most part everyone is committed to the overall sound rather than flashy solos.

The songs are conventionally structured with lots of vocals, refined playing, and tasteful arrangements. The guitar sound is mostly clean electric with occasional acoustic use. The percussion is nuanced and nimble. The lyrics concern mostly matters of the heart and on the back of the album they even thank their girlfriends for their patience at the rehearsals and add "What a great thing is love!" True enough. The final track "Dreamland" is a sophisticated instrumental with layers of lovely keyboards, electronics and bass.

The cover is a delectably classy painting by Tonino Romano that was an absolutely perfect choice for the music contained within. The booklet includes lyrics printed in English and Italian with nice color photos of the boys. Vocals are sung in English. Recommended to anyone looking for some high-end addictive pop music with smooth jazz styling. It's certainly not what I expected from the "neo-prog" genre but I ended up liking it anyway.
