2 stars Well, based on the other reviews I picked this one up. I guess you take a chance with obscure prog albums like this one. I was not impressed. The first track seemed pretty interesting to me. Very neo-prog in the vien of Arena or IQ, but VERY dark. Some interesting guitar work and arrangements. Then the next song came on, and I thought "sounds a lot like the first song". Then the 3rd track came on, and I thought "sounds just like the first song". Then the 4th song came on, etc., etc., etc. All the songs are the same tempo, the same dark and depressing atmosphere, the same guitar sounds and keyboard sounds. By the end of the 3rd track it just gets monotonous. And the female singer just is not particularly good. She has a very odd voice that might be interesting singing in her native language (Italian, I think), but in English just does not work. And the lyrics don't help, as they are pretty bad in terms of grammar and content. On top of that, they maintain the utterly dismal and depressing nature of the whole album. I don't mind dark music at all, but this has no variation and no dynamics for the most part. So two stars only, and that just because I do think the first song is pretty good. If only they had varied from the style, format, mood, and tempo of that first song on the other tracks (and used lyrics in their native language) this might have been a decent album.
