5 stars ASTONISHING!This is the only word that comes in my mind when I think at CITRINITI,the ultra technical Italian band of Ciitriniti Bros and the great Italian guitar player FABRIZIO LEO!In fact,when I think at their musical style,which is 100 % instrumental,I can compare them only with the ultra technical vocal bands like SPIRAL ARCHITECT,TWISTED INTO FORM or AGHORA!After an audition of any CITRINITI album ,the listener remains KO, because you don't have any reaction or impulse to hear something of the same caliber!They are simply fabulous! Millions of notes and the alchemy is perfect between all the 3 musicians!The bros are perfectly compatible with the blistering FABRIZIO LEO,,the Italian answer to the American fusion master GREG HOWE ,in my opinion!Musically speaking an album like this one is difficult to dig,because it's so intense and compact,dense in it's musical message!It's prog metal fusion with an agressive touch at it's best!At a certain level,we can say it's music for musicians,but amateurs of virtuosity have here what they are looking for!This album pushes even further the scarry technical demonstration shown on the first album BETWEEN THE MUSIC AND THE LATITUDE,which impressed even guitar guru Mike Varney from SHRAPNEL,which offered them the chance to edit the first album worldwide !This second one is self produced,but has the same qualities and great production like the first impressive one! Pure wizzardry and great technical demonstration!Almost inhuman!They are not so mad and chaotoc like BEHOLD ...THE ARCTOPUS..or heavy orientated like CANVAS SOLARIS...but the appreciation that they are anchored in prog metal fusion fits perfect! COME AND TASTE IT!!!Satisfaction guaranteed! 5 STARS for technical frenzy!
