4 stars Songs From the Crackling Atanor released in december 2012 is another very worthy album from this unfairly underrated band from Italy named Yleclipse. I have a soft spot for this band since they released Opus in 2006. This album from the excellent art work made by Alessandra Murgia (who done all the art works of previous albums) to the music this album is no less then an excellent journey into neo prog realm where everything is well balanced and performed. Again like on previous albums, here are long elaborated neo-prog pieces with exception opening instrumental track Convivium Mithrae. Keeping the flag high in this field Yleclipse manage to come with another excellent sincere reelease as an example of how must sound a neo prog album these days. I like a lot this new album, both instrumental passages as the voice aswell. Alessio Guerriero has an unique voice and fits perfectly into this type of music, and aswell here I can trace some Peter Hammill influences in some of his vocal lines, of course not a bad thing at all. Opening track Convivium Mithrae - stands as one of the highlights , is an 6 min instrumental piece, a combination of neo prog passages with a medieval, celtic atmosphere, very nice and original. Another very worthy tune is Gentle breeze and Dreams are foam, excellent song writting, top notch vocal lines and elegant guitar works, love it. The rest of the tracxks are also worthy for sure. Simply said this is another great work by the band, who still continue with perseverence to belive in their goal, to produce solid progressive rock for the eager listners ears. For me Yleaclipse is one of the best bands I've ever heared and the most unique aswell, and with thier fifth album - Songs from the Crackling Atanor they still are on the bariccades producing quality music. 4 stars easy, beside music the art work is magic , as one every Yleclipse album.
