5 stars OK... let it be 5 stars, though it's more likely 4.5. Rather unusual interpretation of Vivaldi's Four Seasons masterpiece which differs from what the other prog bands do. Actually this opus is very popular among prog/speed metal performers who use to compete in guitar virtuosity and forget to offer something else. These guys go the other way. Instead, they focus on the experimental improvisation introducing the vocal parts and complex polyrhythm structures. The performance is excellent; the final track is particulary worth notice and offers a variety of musical styles - Emersonesque piano improvisation, CLEARLIGHT reminiscence, strong guiatr staccato and avant garde inserts. The operatic voice in the middle of a track is the most beautiful and contrasts with the preceding dramatic sequence. IMO the third track is not as strong as the rest though it doesn't spoil much the impression of this album.
groon | 5/5 |
