When inspiration is mixed together with talent the result, everybody knows, is the crystallization in the form of precious stones of different shapes and colors that shine even in total darkness irradiating waves of joy that cause extreme pleasure eternally.

Global Appraisal

For some years the band was already recording rather pleasurable albums but come 2012 they outdone themselves releasing the first volume of what would later become this extended collection of songs of the highest order.
I underline the mention of "songs" in the sense of little stories expressed in a lyrical/musical identity readily recognizable on its distinct personality and meaning.
I must say I feel impotent to express on words the overwhelming richness of detailed arrangements, vocal harmonies, varied instrumentations (see credits), thoughtful lyrics, everything being so carefully and pleasurably done exuding quality without fail.


19 precious stones - 19 no less.

Note: Much preferable to get this "Full Power" as it contains the total of vol. I & II plus 4 extra songs just as good.

Quinino | 5/5 |
