First I'd like to say that I'm sure that my review won't do this very fine piece of artwork justice! Next, I'd like to say that I absolutely love this album! Without much hesitation, I believe that this recording, although using a completely modern format deserves to be perched up near the top recordings of all time in the RPI genre! After a few listens to this recording in my van I found it very difficult to move on to other music. The music, and the detailed recording are of the best quality. Even after several listens, I was still finding new details emerging within the music. If the music is good (which this is no doubt) and a new appreciation occurs durring subsequent hearings, there is nothing left but to give it the highest rating. I only hope that Egonon can come close to this recording in future efforts. As Todd stated in his review, these guys are in my number one spot along with Gran Turisimo Veloce, La Coscienza di Zeno and Pandora as some of the modern-day RPI groups that I love and will be watching for their future recordings! Although Todd had mentioned a few other RPI groups in his review, of them, I am not familiar with Absenthia, was never truly convinced on purchasing any of Lagartija's recordings yet and unfortunately, I'm going to have to give Il Tempio delle Clessidre another listen. Although I haven't reviewed their album yet, upon my first listen or two a number of months, probably over a year ago, I found the recording to be a bit lacking for my personal tastes. I know that it has become a popular recording for many, but to me it seemed to be lacking dynamically and also lacking in variety. It reminded me of early CAP recordings and Starcastle stuff as well. Just sort of there, instrumentally fine but somehow monotonous and undramatic. Oh well, sorry if I stepped on anyones toes as I know that some of these recordings I've just mentioned are highly praised by some. Pardon me for getting off of the topic a bit there. Back to Egonon. Actually and your welcome, I'm pertty much done. I'm sure that I've fallen short on this critique, but to anyone who likes RPI, even a little, I highly recommend giving this recording a chance! Keep up the absolutely fine work Egonon! Enjoy Gods gift of music everyone. Take care.
