4 stars Euthymia is a young symphonic prog band from Italy formed in 2008 and released so far the album L'ultima Illusione in 2011. This is a rock opera with the story as far as I understand concentrated on two people, two lovers who had along the album all kinds of doubts and suspicions and things releaded to this feeling, a quite complex story as the music offered here. Symphonic prog who smells on the entire album of vintage prog of the '70's, influenced by giants like Banco, Premiata and even english bands like Pink Floyd or ELP. The album is very keyboard dominated, but aswell the rest ofthe instruments are not left behind, haveing some excellent almost jazzy parts on some passages. The album alternates very well from spoke words, the story narated to the music itself, also the duo voices, female and male are excellent here in this context. This is symphonic prog as must sound this genre today, even has plenty of influences, is definetly a good towards great debute. Sophisticated and complex synth and keybords arragements, showing that Dario Mecca Aleina handle very well the instrument , offering some excellent moments from more spacey to blistering solos. Very strong is the rhytmic section, the drums and bass is omny present and give a solid background most of the time.The guitar is centred more on atmosphere with bombastic arrangements. So, for sure a winner musicaly speaking, also the cover art and the booklet of the album worth to be seen because is great. 4stars easy , a pleasent and enjoyble ride from my side and for sure must be discovered by many symph prog lovers. Recommended.
