3 stars This work is remarkable and quite amazing too, but in my opinion it's too much in the vein of the recent issues by ECHOLYN, IZZ and the 80's RUSH. I don't get crazy for such works nor for the vocals inside this "Between Sunlight and Shadow", but naturally I find an excellent stuff within, between a breakthrough and another; instead I regard the album "Suffocating the Bloom" by ECHOLYN as an appealing masterpiece. Anyway coming back to the present issue, I like to remark the good impression that I received from their sense of melody and the creation of a particular atmosphere as well: even though there's no trace of any bombastic solos or complex arrangements, this concept album, in the middle between progressive rock and space rock, maintains a certain balance, by means of fifteen tracks which often flow fluently. Besides the presence of a simple and essential piano, some good effects (like the run of cars passing on the highway), take the listener to a fine landscape. To me the best track is "Hold a Candle", along with "Flight", where you find an invigorating synthesizer. Instead "Infractus" is a melancholic tune, quite symphonic-like; and moreover, even though you don't find any bombastic solos, the keyboards excursions by John Green are quite fiery and intelligent.
