4 stars There are neither thrilling complexness nor headcrashing virtuosity.There's fine "Claasic Prog-like" folkish album from Italian band FLOATING STATE.It reminds me of JETHRO TULL's "Thick as a Brick" most,but surely it can't be compared with TULL's masterpiece.Good vocals (with fun accento),great songwriting (wonderful melodies!),but the main flaw is epics' length.Is this was SO necessary?While listening to "Pilgrimage..." at the first time,I use to make breaks every 10 minutes - TOO MUCH FILLER-LIKE SOLOING!!!FLOATING STATE aren't these genius to grab your attention and never let it go till the epic goes - there's nothing too important to focus on,so it gets boring.Such soloing would be great during the live show,but in the studio each of the epics should have been shorter at least on 1/4: "White Flower" 15:34 and "Pilgrimage to Nowhere" 30:22 (probably).Nevertheless,I'd like to listen to something else from these Italian guys - something more straightforward and not longer than 15 minutes!!!
