3 stars Second effort by this discrete band named King's journey released in 1992 by same Musea records having a real strong cover art showing exactly what is going one on the album. I like how this band progresse to this second release, a little if not spectacular more choesive and solid album, Fancyfluid did have from the beggining a complex and sophisticated music with delicate touches of acoustic guitar, holding true the 70's Italian symphonic prog tradition. The all 3 albums don't have a masterpiece status or something excellent, but is very fair , sincere and honest music, very well done, professional and with a lot of talent. This time the influences of Marillion are left aside, but this time they are more towards Genesis in structure, but aswell from italian scene from the golden era. Nice guitar and specialy the keybords attract my attention, are very snooth well incorporated in the structure of the piece. Many are bothered by the voice of Fabrizio Goria, who has a specific italian accent, maybe, I'm not bothered by his voice, he fits very well in this context. I alsoo like this band and album because they incorporated in their music some violin, flute and saxophone passages, that gives a great atmosphere to the album and creats a quite great and unique aproach. Sitting on the edge or the river or the last track The End shows how great potential had this band but for some resons they never made it. 3 stars again, a good album for sure.
