The Truth
4 stars I echo the words of fellow reviewer The Gazzardarian with this album: Why doesn't Garden Wall have a following?

The quality of this music is downright stellar, progressive metal with so many different flavors it's like some wonderful culinary masterpiece. I don't know if it has something to do with the language barrier (I know very little Italian) but the emotions of this album switch around rapidly in my ears in a manner that is nonetheless smooth and interesting. It has moments that sound like avant silliness, almost a metal Samla Mammas Manna, and there are other sections that sound like Dream Theater in their greatest emotional moments but this happens while Garden Wall creates their own astoundingly unique sound.

There isn't much else to say. This is a fantastic and original record, one deserving of progressive-leaning ears because it is simply creative progressive rock, like many Italian bands are capable of creating.

Very strong record.
