3 stars After the brilliant ''In limine'' drummer Marcelo Mazzocchi left Finisterre to be replaced by Andrea Orlando and the band started a US tour during the summer of 97',highlighted by their performance at Progday.The same year their first live album ''Live... Ai margini della terra fertile'', recorded in Italy and France, sees the light,but this was also their last on Mellow Records.The band moved to Iridea Records and released their third studio album ''In ogni luogo'' in 1998,helped by Francesca Lago on vocals,Hostsonaten/ex-Eris Pluvia Edmondo Romano on reeds and future Zaal member Sergio Caputo on strings.

This time Zuffanti & co. searched for a more specific style of playing steeped with a variety of atmospheres and the sound on ''In ogni luogo'' is deeply atmospheric Progressive Rock with Post Rock elements,characterized by crunchy guitars, spacey melodic solos and hypnotic keyboards and pianos.But while every track moves more or less through this path,Zuffanti and Marelli blend it every time with different tastes,like symphonic orchestrations,powerful rhythm sections,folkish tunes and jazzy overtones.Typical examples are the strong, groovy but trully atmospheric dark cut ''Ninive'',the long ''Coro elettrico'' with the nice combination of rock music with driving violins,not unlike P.F.M. of ''Chocolate kings''/''Jet lag''-era,the symhonic folk instrumental ''Le cittą indicibili'' or the obscure Post-Rock/Jazz/Prog ''Continuitą dilaraneltempo''.The band uses also the advances of technology with pre-recorded narrations,distorted instrumentation and sound effects to make the album quite unique and personal.

While not reaching the unapproachable level of ''In limine'',the new Finisterre album finds the band crimping into deep waters,establishing a more focused style with an extreme diversity of different, light influences and comes strongly recommended not only for fans of their previous albums,but also anyone searching for some really serious music...3.5 stars.
