3 stars A derivative work in the vein of Yes "90125" but-unlike this latter-without elements of mainstream music...this ensemble, whose first line-up performed a pretty gig during the first edition of an Indoor Prog Fest (organized by my band Lethe) at Vertemate near Como Lake (Italy),was one of the most interesting melodic/pomp rock bands to use the vocal harmonizations in a melodic contest (such an intereresting utilization of the chorus section within their mini-suites) in the early nineties. I don't get crazy for this genre, but I recognize their interesting effort to make the progressive features of 70's/80's classic bands more accessible, anyway never being banal!! They don't use any bombastic solos but good musicians They me it is enough to check their stuff out at least!!

Interesting album, characterized by pretty songs, even though it is not completely essential and -moreover- in a few years They broke their ensemble up!!
