4 stars Yes,yes and yes again!5 years has been a too long wait to have a new PAIDARION album released,but this long time of silence was completed by other amazing musical releases,made by the instigator of this project,the body of work called Kimmo Porsti,the instigator of many amazing projects,such as THE SAMURAI OF PROG,MIST SEASON ,among others!TWO WORLD ENCOUNTER is a very ambitious album,is -in a way-the most mature and complex PAIDARION album so far!I really like the diversity of the album,but the magis is that even the tracks are quite different,there is still a guiding imaginary common line between the tracks!The artwork of Mr Ed Unitsky is absolutelly stunning,a masterpiece indeed!That's even more remarcable,the importance of the visual impact that PAIDARION is giving to the band's albums,and that deserves all our respect,in a world of digital releases and artificial music passion!This album is a labour of love for true good music,is a tribute to strong and mature music focused on composition,not on technical demonstrations,even the technical aspect of this album is a very serious one!Musically speaking,we are spoiled here with an album of almost 60 minutes of wonderful sonic landscapes,very diverse and catchy,with a marvelous production too,where each instrument sound crystal clear and has it's own importance!All the musicians involved in the band are true aces,but there's definitelly a perfect musical alchemy between all of them,we feel the great commitment to all the guys to deliver some strong and wonderful music to this kind of music lovers!I think there are absoutelly necessary many auditions to fully understand this album,because each one will bring new emotions and discoveries to the listeners!4.75 stars for mewith a a special mention for the amazing artwork too and hat off to Mr Kimmo Porsti for another musical triumph !
