4 stars First of all,I want to tell you that I don't know the first MIND KEY album,but about this second one I want to tell you that I was totally blown away after a single audition!I discovered it almost 2 years after it's release and I can tell that this PULSE FOR A GRAVEHEART is one of the best prog metal albums that I've listened it in years!Of course,la bella Italia has many excellent bands,but this MIND KEY is absolutelly one of the best in the prog metal community ,in my humble opinion!This album has absolutelly everything to be considered trully excellent,especially some sensational musicians,great compositions and an amazing range,variety of ways of expression in this very generous style called prog metal!The production is excellent and the diversity of the tracks is so catchy that every track of the album is 100% listenable,and there are no weak tracks on it either!The guests are more than spectacular -TOM ENGLUND of EVERGREY,DEREK SHERINIAN and the wonderful guitar player from WINGER and WHITESNAKE-REB BEACH.Quite impressive,isn't it?DENNIS WARD the American producer and bass player of PINK CREAM 69 is absolutelly stunning with te job he did it-great and powerful sound,crystal clear,fantastic!The clever mix of heavy,massive guitar riffs and the modern sound of the keyboards-very present indeed,plus the powerful voice of the vocalist-everything is attractive and impressive in the same time!It's trully a curse, an anathema that each band playing prog metal with a heavy edge must be compared to DREAM THEATER!It's almost frustrating for this bands to have this burden of comparison with the American icons of the you love this genre...give a chance to no matter what new band if they are capable to sound like DREAM THEATER!!!!!!!!!!There is enough place under the sun for all theprog metal bands in the world!So,PULSE FOR A GREVEHEART is a very ,very good album,and I am sure the third one will be even greater,because this guys have an enormous potential,I am sure about it!Together with EMPTY TREMOR and TWINSPIRITS- MIND KEY -are the best power proge metal Italian bands!4.5 STARS for a great album indeed!
