Review by siLLy puPPy
Collaborator PSIKE & JR/F/Canterbury Teams

3 stars The Colossus Projects began their ambitious projects in 2001 to promote the outstanding accomplishments of Finnish progressive rock (which there have been many) and then the whole thing kinda took on a life of its own as the collaboration with Musea Records created a synergistic effect that guaranteed an exposure to a worldwide network of tuned in prog aficionados salivating for something both creative, traditional and, of course, entertaining! After a diverse eclectic palette paving the way for even more sophisticated projects, in 2011 Musea Records released "Decameron - Ten Days in 100 Novellas - Part I" which isn't remotely Finnish but rather a collection of Italian tales excavated from the 14th century. The word DECAMERON is a neologism of the Greek words deca (ten) and mera (days) and THE DECAMERON which is subtitled Prince Galehaut is a collection of novellas written by the author Giovanni Baccaccio (1313-1375) and is structured as a frame story that contains 100 tales told by a group of seven young women and three young men who were sheltered in a secluded villa outside of Firenze (Florence), Italy in order to escape the black death plague that was rampant at the time. Well, three years after the first installment of this series came DECAMERON - TEN DAYS IN 100 NOVELLAS - PART II which continued the themes in musical form with some artists making a reprise and yet others entering the Musea equation for the very first time. Two years later, the label once again released a third installment in the series and in 2016 the various artist release DECAMERON - TEN DAYS IN 100 NOVELLAS - PART III was born.

Once again PART III is a monster of a release with 4 CDs stuffed full of lengthy symphonic leaning progressive rock tracks in thematic unison. Once again as well the packaging is exquisitely beautiful with period artwork gracing the cover and discs alike accompanied by a generous booklet with liner notes continuing the artistic flair as well as band photos and lyrics to those tracks that have them. While the Musea Colossus Projects tend to have the same artists on every most of their releases, PART III contains many new cast members but a few such as Nexus, Jinetes Negros and Rebel Wheel are back for another round. While these compilations are fairly global in nature, this one seems to have an extraordinarily heavy emphasis on Italian bands (12), USAmerican (7) with Argentina coming in at a distant third with only (3). While the music on these behemoths are always thematically connected, on PART III there is also a lot of continuity musically speaking which is one of the reasons i'm finding it less compelling than the other two installments of the DECAMERON series and unfortunately one of my least favorites of the entire Colossus Project that i've encountered.

Right from the first track, PART III sounds very different than its counterparts. It begins with an almost showtune sort of track titled "HeeBeeGeeBee" by UK artist Robert Webb. For the first listen, i had to actually check my CD to make sure that someone didn't slip a Broadway musical release into the jewel case by mistake. Nope, this was the right one alright. It just so happens that the entire 4.5 hours of playing time consists of such gleeful merry musical meanderings that could easily fit in the world of theatric drama and such. What's also noticeably different about PART III is that there seems to be a deliberate attempt to simplify the progressive elements with a lot more crossover potential than previously heard. There are more direct and bombastic ear wormy hooks reminiscent of classic Supertramp keyboard runs as well as more simplified guitar parts that often result in simply staccato chords. Garage prog anyone? Yeah, the material is considerably weaker on this one and i have to admit that not one single track jumps out and blows me away as these compilations usually do. I've been wondering if perhaps the different lineup of artists may be to blame but even the artist i'm familiar with don't crank out their usual quality material bursting with passionate delivery.

This one was fairly disappointing i have to say with the first two discs leaving me fairly cold. It does pick up a bit on Disc 3. The Rebel Wheel kick off with a strong track followed by some creativity of Taproban, S.A.L.U.E.N.A and Blank Manuscript which offer some of my favorite tracks of the comp but there are also silly tracks by Castle Canyon and Ozone Player that trade off spoken narrative with operatic vocals. There also seems to be a general lack of vivaciousness most of the tracks are fairly prog-by-the-numbers with lots of nods to 70s Pink Floyd not to mention that the vocals are mostly flat and unsuitable for the music. Not all is a waste of time. There are plenty of moments on this one that are indeed satisfying but nothing that exceeds the satisfaction of the first two DECAMERON editions. The whole affair seems rather sleepy and lazy and only fueling on half octane potential. Several listens later and not only has this not grown on me but actually has become quite irritating for the most part. It's not that the good parts are bad, it's just that most of the album cruises along on automatic pilot and nothing really jumps out and surprises. This may be an omen that the DECAMERON idea has been milked of all its possibilities and time to move on to other ideas. Three editions with bloated quadruple discs is quite the momental task. They succeeded quite well on the first two but the staleness has set in, at least for me. Worth the listen but probably not one i will revisit until several years pass by and i forgot what it sounds like.

Review by Matti
Prog Reviewer

— First review of this album —
3 stars I have rated the middle part of the Excalibur trilogy with three stars. I think this one's notably better, but since it's still not exactly pure progressive rock or "excellent addition to any prog rock music collection" , I'll round my 3˝ stars downwards. We're dealing with a new chapter in the ambitious Celtic saga, or "rock opera" as some call it, that the Breton-Celtic musician Alan Simon has created over the years. His manager had suggested a new tour in 2015 and Simon felt it would feel right only with new material. He worked more than a year on this project and feels very pleased at the results. The preceding parts were released in 1999, 2007 and 2012 respectively. If you're unfamiliar with them, that's no problem at all in getting to know this album, which one can simply take as an individual, loosely conceptual collection of songs with various vocalists and various moods. The partly orchestrated music could be labeled as Crossover Prog or Celtic rock.

If you look at the song list on the CD's back cover, especially the words "from JETHRO TULL" and "from SUPERTRAMP" appear ridiculously often, just because Martin Barre, Jesse Siebenberg or John Halliwell happen to play on most tracks. There could have been a wiser way to mark the performers, but that's not a big deal. Otherwise the well-known guests on this album are vocalists - or singing players such as Alan Stivell and the mentioned Siebenberg. Michael Sadler (SAGA) and Moya Brennan (CLANNAD) sing two songs each, Bernie Shaw (URIAH HEEP) and Sonja Kristina (CURVED AIR) one song each. Roberto Tiranti is another heavy- style vocalist (on two tracks), while Siobhan Owen (on 'The Last Lament of a Fairy' and achingly delicate 'There Is someone') brings more of the ethereal Celtic romanticism with her beautiful voice and Celtic harp.

The only purely instrumental track is the energetic 'The Fifth Season' starring Martin Barre's electric guitar, and, to a smaller degree, John Halliwell's saxophone. The final 19th track 'Dun Angus II' is among the most pompous ones, featuring the operatic soprano of Maite Itoiz (from Elfenthal, which neither I nor ProgArchives know). It is indeed the exhausting grandiosity, or the fearful possibility of the music to feel exactly like a rock opera, that is the biggest thread to concept albums like this. But in the end this really is primarily a well produced and executed set of songs, some of them rather average and some very enjoyable. Hardly this will approach my list of prog favourites from 2017, but a pretty positive surprise this was anyway.

Review by TenYearsAfter

3 stars Colossus Project was an Italian musical project featuring four members and a wide range of guest musicians, including known names Keiko Kumagai (Ars Nova) and Fred Schendel (Glass Hammer) and fellow Italians Cristiano Roversi (Moongarden, Submarine Silence and The Watch) and Joe La Viola (Malaavia). The concept-story is based upon Georg Lucas popular Star Wars Episode IV as a tribute, you can read about that in the huge booklet also including words about the foundation of this project, the musicians, the instruments (mainly 'vintage') and the lyrics, embellished with tasteful pictures of all members.

The music sounds very varied, along pure progrock we can also enjoy a pleasant blend of several styles with lush vintage keyboards (especially the Mellotron, Hammond organ and Minimoog synthesizer): bluesy with tasteful work on organ, guitar, saxophone along Minimoog runs and a swinging Hammond solo in The Millennium Falcon - folky with soaring female vocals, flute and Celtic harp in the mellow My Tears For Alderaan - classical in the beautiful instrumental May The Force Be With You - jazzy with powerful saxophone in the short and funny The Millenium Quartet - melodic rock in the propulsive Meeting The Force (strong break with swirling Hammond solo by Fred Schendel) - dreamy with steel-guitar and Fender Rhodes electric piano, flute, acoustic rhythm-guitar and warm vocals in Two Suns - and a kind of 'symphonic rock ballad' in When I Was A Jedi (featuring the distinctive harpsichord sound, Hammond, Moog and dramamtic vocals).

My progrock highlights are the instrumental first composition Astral Prelude (wonderful vintage keyboards and a groovy bass solo, including the 'slap' technique), the alternating The Dark Lord Of The Sith (from intro with fado guitar and a final part with acoustic guitar to bombastic keyboard and Fripperian guitarwork) and especially the epic The Rebellion Suite (3 parts, around the 20 minutes), from beautiful flute ? and violin-Mellotron and howling guitar like Steve Hackett (glissando and 'hammering down') to a swinging bass solo and a compelling grand finale with excellent interplay between Grand piano, Mellotron and emotional vocals, goose bumps!

If you are up to tasteful and varied music that is layered with Moogs, Hammonds and Mellotrons, contains a wide range of instruments and has an important role for the vocals (only 3 songs are instrumental), you will be pleased with Colossus Project.

My rating: 3,5 star.

Review by TenYearsAfter

4 stars This was another interesting release by Colossus and Musea, the socalled Finnish-French Connection. It's entitled Giallo! and based upon the famous movie Deep Red (1975) by Dario Argento. This CD contains five compositions by Italians artists/bands: the short intro and outro are performed by Alfio Costa on keyboards, he also joined the first epic composition from the musial project Dark Session, the other two epics (all more than 20 minutes) are played by the known formation Leviathan, and Floating State.

1. Alfio Costa - Frammento Rosso (Intro) (0.58) : The CD begins with a warm Grand piano sound, then pleasantly blended with the Minimoog synthesizer. A kind of musical warm bath of 60 seconds, very pleasant.

2. Dark Session - Visions of Helga (26.11) : The musical project Dark Session is an offshoot of the ELP-inspired band Tilion and features multi-instrumentalist Flavio Costa who has invited guest musicians Alfio Costa (vintage keyboards) and Hamadi Trabels ('dark speaking voices'). The name of the band points at the often dark atmospheres with a remarkable frequent use of the unsurpassed Mellotron from the very first moment: a majestic violin-section sound, followed by flute-Mellotron and blended with the distinctive harpsichord sound and sensitive electric guitar runs in a spacey, a bit ominous climate. Then Dark Session creates a great tension between the mellow parts (with soaring and melancholical Mellotron, fragile guitar and twanging acoustic guitar) and the more powerful and bombastic interludes (with propulsive guitar riffs, howling and fiery guitar, a powerful and dynamic rhythm-section and fiery wah-wah guitar), often King Crimson's dark and violent album Red comes to my mind but with the fat sound of the Minimoog flights! Dark Session their music also reminds me of Japanese King Crimson- clone Bi Kyo Ran because of the biting Fripperian guitar sound and the powerful rhythm-section. Anyway, despite these obvious references, I was carried away to Progheaven during this Mellotron drenched composition!

3. Leviathan - Vecchi Giochi (21.03 - four parts) : Nowadays Leviathan is a trio that has invited a male and female singer on this song. Again we can enjoy 24-carat symphonic rock and vintage keyboards like the Minimoog, Hammond and Mellotron. It starts with beautiful Grand piano, classical orchestrations and inspired Italian vocals, the the music alternates between dreamy, compelling, mid-tempo rhythms and bombastic featuring sparkling piano and fluent Hammond runs. Due to the heavy Moog Taurus bass pedal sound and the Hackett-like guitar, Leviathan evokes Wind & Wuthering-era Genesis, what a wonderful music! The final part is great delivering a slow rhythm with bass pedals, synthesizer flights and choir-Mellotron, topped with passionate Italian vocals, goose bumps!

4. Floating State - Suite Dall'inconscia dell'Assassino (25.06) : Without any doubt this six-piece formation makes the most adventurous and varied progrock on Giallo!, less traditional and more experimental with avant-garde and jazz elements. The basic in this composition is a swinging rhythm with a lush instrumentation (from classical guitar, flute and saxophones to vibraphone, a wide range of vintage keyboards and even the distinctive Theremin) and lots of intersting changing climates, at some moments pretty experimental like a part with Hammond and piano. The interplay is strong and I was pleased with parts featuring choir-Mellotron, vibraphone and warm vocals.

5. Alfio Costa - Mirrors (outro) (1.34) : The final track begins with ominous sounding Grand piano, then gradually turns into dreamy, simply wonderful!

Review by TenYearsAfter

3 stars The Musea/Colossus collaboration presents on this progrock project (from 2008) three progrock bands, each with an epic composition.

First Little Tragedies from Russia with a track entitled The Voice Of Silence (19.30). The music deliver lots of spectacular bombastic parts with dazzling synthesizer runs and ELP inspired Hammond work. We can also enjoy exciting interplay between flowing guitar/keyboards and powerful saxophone/organ, fuelled by a propulsive rhythm-section. Very subtle is the blend of flamenco rhythm guitar in some parts, it gives a special flavor to the music.

Then Yesterdays from Hungary with the song Suite Pauline (20.00), in comparison with their contribution to the 4-CD CD box Dante's Inferno, the emphasis is less on folk and more on Seventies keyboard oriented symphonic rock. It contains many changing climates and interesting musical ideas with wonderful work on vintage keyboards, often in duel with other instruments: choir-Mellotron and electric guitar, reed organ and Glockenspiel, trumpet/violin- Mellotron and classical guitar with flute. I also enjoyed a part with the impressive church-organ sound and an interlude featuring an exciting duel between drums and choir- and violin-Mellotron, joined by Fripperian guitarwork, goose bumps!

Finally the Italian formation N.O.T. with the song Epilogo (23.28): it sounds very alternating and dynamic with many bombastic climates featuring powerful Hammond work, flashy synthesizer runs, howling electric guitar, pleasant Mellotron waves, often very compelling. The music reminds me of early King Crimson and Outer Limits, especially in the final part with sumptuous violin-Mellotron waves, propulsive electric guitar play and powerful drums.

Another interesting album from Musea and Colossus, especially the vintage keyboard aficionados will be delighted!

My rating: 3,5 star.

4 stars What a delight are these progrock projects by Finnish progrock magazine Colossus and French progrock label Musea. First it's a boost for lesser known and unknown new progressive rocks bands. And second it's an unique chance for progheads to check out these bands. So a big hand for Colossus and Musea,

The box set Dante's Inferno - The Divine Comedy - Part 1 delivers 34 (!) progrock bands from all over the world on 4 CD's and a 80 page booklet with information about the line-ups, the vintage instruments and websites, embellished with lots of pictures and paintings.

CD-1 : What a pleasure this CD starts with Nuova Era, in my opinion their instrumental contribution is the best this acclaimed Nineties rooted Italian formation ever made: a melodic and dynamic sound between ELP and Ars Nova featuring wonderful keyboard work (Hammond, church-organ, synthesizers and Mellotron) and in the final part powerful saxophone play. By the way, it was a prelude for more beautiful things to come (in 2010 and 2016).

I am also delighted about Little Tragedies (ultra-bombastic progrock with flashy guitar and keyboards and an energetic rhythm-section), Lady Lake (varied sound between Focus and Camel with beautiful Mellotron and Hammond waves and exciting electric violin play), Nemo (from compelling to bombastic outbursts, topped by strong theatrical vocals and tasteful work on Hammond, Mellotron and wah-wah guitar), Nexus (a bit more dubdued with an important role for the emotional vocals and synthesizer flights) and Flamborough Head with Trion (very melodic and varied with wonderful keyboard colouring along tasteful work on guitar and flute). The other bands are also worth listening: pleasant progfolk with warm female vocals, flute, acoustic guitar and halfway a surprising Korg synthesizer solo by Yesterdays, an unique, bit experimental sound with opera-like duo vocals by Greenwall, a strong build-up with emotional vocals and powerful Hammond and electric guitar by Atlantis 1001 and Colossus Project featuring an obvious Seventies sound with lots of Hammond waves and sparkling Minimoog runs.

CD-2 : A blend of known and unknown bands with strong appearances by Count (bombastic neo-symphonic sound with good duo-guitarwork (including a long moving solo), Willowglass (wonderful, from mellow with soaring Hammond, flute and warm 12-string guitar to bombastic with mighty Hammond and Mellotron), Wicked Minds (sensational Uriah Heep inspired sound with lots of breaks delivering swirling Hammond, fiery and biting wah-wah electric guitar and a Minimoog-Hammond duel), Ars Nova (great musical ideas and exciting, bombastic work on keyboards and heavy guitarplay by 3 guitarplayers) and Matthijs Herder (from Holland): between dreamy and compelling with a beautiful Mellotron sound and sensitive electric guitar that reminds me of fellow Dutchman Jan Akkerman. The other tracks are all on a decent level: a sound between The Flower Kings and Gentle Giant with the distinctive clavinet and strong solo on synthesizer and guitar by Brighteye Brison, an experimental sound with a wide range of instruments, including bombastic choir-Mellotron in the end by Garamond, pleasant symphonic rock with violin, piano, church organ, guitar and synthesizers by Il Castello Di Atlante and finally varied progfolk (between dreamy with flute, acoustic guitar and warm vocals and bombastic with Hammond, howling electric guitar and a synthesizer solo) by Groovector.

CD-3 : This disc delivers a lot of variety and a wide range of atmospheres: heavy and bombastic with blistering guitar, spectacular synthesizer flights and emotional Spanish vocals by Entrance, experimental with a flamenco guitar intro and a wide range of instruments by Advent, a sparkling solo on the Grand piano by the Contrappunto Project, between mellow with flute/mandoline and sumptuous with Moog/choir-Mellotron by CAP and ELP-inspired by Ozone Player. My favorite moments are the tracks by Sinkadus (compelling, typical Skandinavian climate with bombastic Hammond and Mellotron, a wonderful part with volume pedal guitar and flute Mellotron and a conclusion featuring howling guitar with lush Hammond and Mellotron), Nota Bene (jazzy undertone because of the Fender Rhodes electric piano and guitar sound and an exciting break delivering swinging piano and moving guitar) and Viima (wonderful duo-keyboards and sensitive electric guitar).

CD-4 : After more than 3 hours listening to this huge box set, I was very curious or this final disc would succeed to keep my attention. Well, it did! The first two bands were unknown but very promising formations from Italy: Armalite alternates between Seventies Genesis and early Marillion with warm native vocals, a lush keyboard sound (lots of Trons) and fiery electric guitar and Corte Aulica delivers a dynamic, alternating and melodic sound with sensitive electric guitar and exciting Minimoog work. Then multi-instrumentalist Raimundo Rudolfo (plus guest musicians), I love his blend of classical (violin, cello, guitar) and bombastic symphonic rock (Mellotron, church-organ, Minimoog and powerful electric guitar), embellished with pleasant Spanish vocals. Next is an interesting duo: keyboardplayer De Rossi (using an array of vintage keyboards) and former Rustichelli/Bordini and PFM member drummer Carlo Bordini, we can enjoy inventive keyboard-driven prog, from swinging clavinet to a great final part with the choir-section of a Memotron and a fat Minimoog sound, goose bumps! Tempano their music is a kind of avant-garde sound collage, very atmospheric with propulsive drum beats and lots of instruments. Nathan Mahl presents a very strongly build-up contribution, from dreamy with tender piano and a slow rhtyhm with Camel-inspired guitar and Mellotron to a bombastic part with Hammond organ and fiery guitar. Finally the acclaimed Swedish band Simon Says, for me their composition turns out to be one of the highlights on this 4-CD box: lots of shifting moods (from tender piano with warm vocals to intense bombastic eruptions with Mellotron and bass pedals), captivating musical ideas (with the vocoder and a sitar), exciting breaks and solos (flashy synthesizer with pitchbend) and a mindblowing final part with a strongly build-up guitar solo and sparkling piano, again goose bumps!

My conclusion: a very pleasant and loaded Pandora's progrock box of surprises (part one)!

Review by TenYearsAfter

4 stars Here's the second part of the Dante story The Divine Comedy entitled Dante's Purgatorio, this is the place (in fact a mountain) where the souls of those who have died repenting of their sins are 'purified' in order to be allowed to access Paradise. In the huge booklet (80 pages) you can read the story in 36 'Canto's', embellished with wonderful paintings. The second part of the booklet contains information about the 35 bands and compositions, the (mainly 'vintage') instrumentation and many websites. Listening to this 4-CD I am pleasantly surprised about the quality of the 36 tracks, since the late Sixties there is still so much quality and dedication in progressive rock!

CD 1 starts with the highly acclaimed Swedish band Simon Says, on this track only featuring keyboard player Stefan Renstrom, he delivers a first part with beautiful Grand piano and flute-Mellotron, then a kind of 'sound collage' in the second part, pretty experimental and not really similar to his work in Simon Says. Then Nemo, I watched this French band on the annual Progfarm Festival in Holland in late 2008, high expectations but their contribution evokes mixed feelings: exciting guitar with sitar sound and keyboards with Fender electric piano sound, in the end great part with rock guitar and psychedelic organ but the 'lalala' vocals doesn't please me at all. Next my highlight on this CD, Italian formation KBridge with a 15 minutes epic. We can enjoy lots of flowing shifting moods, a breathtaking sound of the Minimoog synthesizer, Hammond organ and Mellotron and very moving electric guitar. Only the English vocals sound a bit mediocre but not disturbing, next time Italian vocals please! The other bands are Ozone Player from Finland (alternating with majestic choir-Mellotron and a flashy Minimoog solo in the end), Raimundo Rodulfo from the USA (impressive guitar work with hints of Steve Howe, concluded with a sensational Minimoog solo), Ten Midnight from Italy (strong build up, from dreamy to bombastic with propulsive guitar riffs and Emersonian Moog flights and wonderful choir-Mellotron), Soulengine from Italy (a kind of 'Rush meets neo-prog' with strong work on keyboards and guitar, it sounds very powerful and exciting), Willowglass (this time not a duo but only prime mover Andrew Marshall) from the UK (very beautiful blend of 12-string acoustic guitar and vintage keyboards, halfway culminating into a bombastic part with sensitive electric guitar runs and splendid Mellotron waves) and finally Atlantis1001, again a band from Italy, another highlight on this CD: a very compelling and powerful sound with strong English vocals, I love the contrast between the Grand piano and the sumptuous vintage keyboards and heavy guitar sound and you can enjoy sensational breaks and solos on guitar, wow!

CD 2 opens with a virtuosic solo piece on the Grand piano by Andrea Cavallo of the Contrappunto Project (Italy). Then again from Italy lady Sophy Baccini, she delivers an unique blend of wonderful vintage keyboards (lots of fat modular Moog sounds along Hammond, piano and strings) and good, pretty theatrical vocals, to me it sounds intricate although the vocals are a bit too extravagant for me. Next is Argentine top notch formation Nexus with the usual bombastic Hammond and synthesizer layers and strong guitar (fiery solo and delicate slide guitar) but this time the vocals are in Gibberish, it sounds a bit weird but thumbs up for this daring experiment. The following artists are the 'veterans' of acclaimed Italian band Nuova Era with a varied track that is loaded with excellent vintage keyboards, Moog Taurus bass pedals, the final part is mindblowing featuring a compelling, a bit psychedelic atmosphere with a raw guitar solo, goose bumps! The other bands are Survival from Holland (church- organ intro, then a tight rhythm section with lots of Hammond and Emersonian ' Works era - synthesizer flights), Little Tragedies from Russia (ultra bombastic with splendid interplay between heavy guitar and dazzling keyboards, supported by a very powerful rhythm-section), Marmalite from Italy (very pleasant and melodic neo-prog with strong Italian vocals, lots of musical ideas and wonderful work on guitar and keyboards, especially the unsurpassed Mellotron), Phideaux from the USA (very warm and compelling composition with wah-wah guitar and subtle contributions of the Hammond, Moog and Mellotron) and finally Tommy Eriksson from Finland with a sound that alternates between symphonic rock (Genesis and Camel) and neo-prog (early Marillion and IQ), the instrumentation is varied and beautiful, from fiery electric guitar and majestic choir-Mellotron to soaring flute and powerful Hammond organ waves, in the end a strong synthesizer solo.

On CD 3 the first band is Chilean Heavy Prog formation Entrance, we can enjoy a swinging rhythm with powerful Spanish vocals, spectacular synthesizer work and harder-edged guitar. Then the USA band Maxwell's Demon (with a varied and adventurous track, from a spacey intro and twanging acoustic guitar to lush choir-Mellotron and Hammond organ) and RAK from Switzerland (omnipresent Hammond organ sound along moving guitar, beautiful Grand piano and a choir). Next one of the highlights on this CD, Colossus Project from Italy: first mellow with warm vocals and soaring flute- Mellotron, then bombastic with strong Damian Wilson-like vocals and mighty Mellotron eruptions, followed by a splendid break with powerful guitar and Hammond and in the end dreamy with acoustic guitar, pleasant vocals and Mellotron, wow! The other bands are Matthijs Herder from Holland (delicate interplay between guitar, keyboards and rhythm- section with the focus on the Mellotron, including the choir -, violin ' and flute section, awesome!), Mad Crayon from Italy (warm sound with native vocals, violin and a classical ' and electric guitar duet), Tabula Smaragdina from Hungary/Romania (excellent and dynamic song with strong work on guitar and keyboards and in the end a wah wah guitar and choir-Mellotron duet, how exciting), Blank Manuskript from Austria (fluent rhythm, wide range of instruments and lots of variety) and finally from Holland the trio Lady Lake with their very pleasant and melodic interplay between guitar, keyboards and rhythm-section evoking Camel (guitar) and Focus (Hammond) and in the end beautiful Mellotron waves.

CD 4 starts with two bands from Finland, both in mellow climates: first Groovector (very atmospheric with native vocals) and then Mist Seaon (soaring female vocals, a jazzy Fender piano solo and in the end a sensitive electric guitar solo). The next band is Flamborough Head from Holland: a strong build-up from dreamy with flute and piano to a slow rhythm with moving guitar and Mellotron and finally a bombastic climate featuring a fine synthesizer solo and a powerful solo on the electric guitar, a big hand for these fellow Dutchmen. The other bands are Yesterdays from Hungary/Romania (a tight beat with native vocals, sensational keyboard work and strong guitar play that range from Howe inspired to Fripperian), B612 from Venezuela (from a warm classical guitar intro to fiery guitar leads, embellished with duo Spanish vocals), my highlight Equilibrio Vital from Venezuela (choir-Mellotron drenched, guitar with an Andean undertone, a part with native dialect and strong Hammond and electric guitar solos), Jinetes Negros from Argentina (exciting Heavy Prog with classical orchestrations, heavy work on guitar, powerful Spanish vocals and a swirling Hammond solo), a second appearance by Simon Says from Sweden (dreamy with majestic choir-Mellotron and Wakeman-like synthesizer flights and finally Pasini & Ragozza from again Italy, their track sounds a bit experimental in the beginning, halfway a slow rhythm with a very Classic Italian Prog climate.

My conclusion: a very pleasant and loaded Pandora's progrock box of surprises (part two)!

4 stars "FIRST REVIEW OF THIS BOX SET"

Once the Italian capital Rome was the heart of the Ancient World. On November the 5th and 6th 2010 this wonderful city was the heart of the Italian progrock world: a two day festival with reunited old Italian bands and interesting new Italian bands featuring many musicians from the classic line-ups, topped with a delicate selection of legendary progrock musicians from the UK and The Netherlands! This magical progrock event has been released as a lavish box set, with 7 CD's, 4 DVD's and an extensive booklet.

CD 1 : The festival was opened by the performance of Sinestesia, they presented their harder-edged prog with hints from Dream Theater. Then the 'unknown legend' The Trip featuring a sound that alternates between ELP and Yes, great to see the inspired 60+ keyboard player on his Hammond organ. But also a strong contribution by guest guitarist Fabri Kiareli in the composition Ode A J. Hendrix.

CD 2 : The acclaimed new band Maschera Di Cera pleased those who love 70-77 Genesis and Steve Hackett solo, wonderful and what an awesome vintage keyboard sound. Then Le Orme legends Aldo Tagliapietra and Antonio Pagliuca (with Tolo Marton), back on stage after 35 years and joined by former King Crimson violin player David Cross. What a performance by this Le Orme line-up, playing their wonderful, highly praised Seventies songs, including some Felona. An extra flavour was David Cross his sensational electric violin work, featuring a version of the titletrack Exiles (from his 1997 solo album).

CD 3 + CD 4 : Next on stage the legend of all 'classic' Italian progrock legends: PFM, supported by another legend, guest musician Ian Anderson (playing Jethro Tull tracks Bour'e and My God), of course on flute traverse! They played outstanding versions of their best Seventies work, from Il Banchetto and Impressioni Di Settembre to La Carrozza di Hans and the crowd pleaser Celebration, including the cheerfull Minimoog synthesizer flights, what a progrock party!

CD 5 : The new band Periferia Del Mondo delivered a good gig, they make varied progrock music, very well received. Next the 'new' Raccomandata Ricevuta Di Ritorno featuring Dutch progrock legend Thijs van Leer and former Goblin keyboard player Claudio Simonetti. The crowd was pleased with some Goblin work (Suspiria and Profondo Rosso) and a strong rendition of Focus their catchy hit single House Of The King (swirling flute traverse play by Thijs Van Leer, obviously enjoying the special atmosphere!).

CD 6 : The most interesting new band was Abash, playing their blend of prog metal and ethnic music (Africa/Arabia) with female singer Anna Rito Luceri. She is not only a visual eyecatcher but she also delivers the same powerful voice as on their studio album. The very popular 'classic' Italian band Osanna featured two great musicians. First keyboard player Gianni Leone from Seventies Il Balleto Di Bronzo, their highly acclaimed album Ys (1972) is one of the albums that epitomizes the 'classic' Italian prog, so varied and adventurous. And second the VDGG saxophone ' and flute player David Jackson (VDGG). Both musicians got a huge response and they contributed very well to the strong compositions of Osanna their unique prog sound, the crowd showed their appreciation many times!

CD 7 : Finally Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso featuring the late singer Francesco Di Giacomo (who died early 2014), one of the best vocal performers in the world of progrock. He delivered so much emotional depth to the music, especially on R.I.P., halfway during the mellow part with piano and vocals, wet eyes and goose bumps! The crowd enjoyed the setlist with many 'classic' tracks, from Metamorfsoi to Traccia II, embellished with great work on keyboards by the virtuosic Vittorio Nocenzi!

One unpleasant note: the late John Wetton (who died early 2017) played with Banco on this festival but he is not on this box, due to problems with copyright I read in the booklet. But you can check YouTube where you will find a video featuring John Wetton and Banco playing Starless (on November 6th, 2010).

DVD 1,2,3 and 4 contain all the music from the 7 CD's. The filming is good, the lightshow is very tasteful and you can experience the special atmosphere and the joy of the inspired musicians and the often excited crowd on those two magical evenings.

My conclusion: I am delighted about this trip into the world of the Italian progrock, in fact a kind of overview of five decades. And I like the choice of the organisation to blend reunited old bands and new bands with an adventurous and varied musical vision (as in the genuine Italian progrock tradition), with the addition of spectacular progrock guests, you can't beg more for, what a treat!

3 stars First review of this album.

What a delight that the Finnish Colossus and French Musea keep on releasing those vintage keyboards drenched boxes, this time the focus is on the Swedish progressive rock in the Seventies. In my opinion this is a pretty unexplored territory for many progheads with the exception of Kaipa (here Roine Stolt started his progrock carreer) and Bo Hansson (once member of the duo Hansson & Karlsson that was support act of Jimi Hendrix in the late Sixties in Sweden).

On CD-1 we meet a few known new formations.

Simon Says plays Kaipa (dreamy intro with sitar, then a compelling bombastic climate with wonderful vintage keyboards and a moving guitar solo), Willowglass also playing Kaipa (keyboards in the vein of 76-77 Genesis), Beardfish plays Made In Sweden (dynamic and varied) and Bootcut as Merit Hemmingson (lush Hammond sound). Very beautiful in the '70 Genesis tradition is Revalation as Atlas (mighty close to Tony Banks during The Cinema Show) and E.D.O. (Edo Spanninga from Flamborough Head) also plays Atlas (impressive church organ and violin-Mellotron. I also love to listen to Jinetes Negros als Blakulla (very alternating with splendid vintage keyboards and sensitive electric guitar), The Grand Trick as Bo Hansson (propulsive with fiery guitar) and Echoes as Trettioariga Kriget (from compelling with steel-guitar to a swinging break with a bas solo).

On CD-2 we can enjoy a lot of variety.

Pleasant symphonic rock like La Boca Della Verita as Dice (with an awesome Mellotron sound, powerful guitar and flashy Minimoog flights), Karmic Juggernaut also as Dice (fluent bombastic like Seventies Yes and lush Hammond) and Mist Season as Ragnarok (Camel-like with strong work on guitar and synthesizer). Or Sixties rock like Jimi Hendrix and Cream by Magnolia as November (extended guitar solo with sensational use of the wah-wah pedal) and jazzy with powerful saxophone and guitar by Vanilla Project as Atlas. This CD also contains songs that sound like a blend of pop, rock and Sixties like renditions of tracks by JetSet, Samla Mammas Manna, Trettioariga Kriget and Pugh Rogefeldt by respectively JetSet, Tkingkeys, Villabrad and Soniq Circus. It sounds pleasant but not traditionally progressive like we use to get from Colossus/Musea. Nonetheless, it's interesting music Swedish progressive rock.

CD-3 turns out to be the most adventurous and surprising one from this 3-CD box, not always my cup of tea but often captivating.

A kind of chamber progrock with fat synthesizer runs and classical flute by a special formation with a piece of the Swedish composer Johan Heimich Roman, a swinging rythm with fine vintage keyboards by Daal (featuring Alfio Costa) as Ragnarok, a piece with a beautiful solo on the flute-Mellotron and strong guitar work and female Swedish vocals by Anya (including Par Lindh) as November, blisteringwah-wah guitar and then lush a Mellotron and Moog sound by The Moor as Pugh Rogenfeldt, a compelling blend of symphonic rock and psychedelia with Floydian guitar and intense Mellotron by Matthijs Herder as Algamas Tradgard, folky with the Arabian ''oud' and Indian sitar by In The Labyrinth as Handgjort and an intricate musical stew featuring sitar and tables and all sorts of sounds by Orient Squeezers as Zamla Mammaz Manna.

Personally I like this box because it's an interesting way to discover Seventies progrock other than from countries like Italy, France, Germany and Spain. Especially bands like Blakulla, Dice and Ragnarok are worth to discover but I am also delighted about the renditions of the current progrock formations. And ' fellow Dutchman Matthijs Herder his lush Mellotron sound is great! My rating: 3,5 stars.

Review by siLLy puPPy
Collaborator PSIKE & JR/F/Canterbury Teams

4 stars Despite the Colossus Projects beginning their ambitious projects in 2001 to promote the outstanding accomplishments of Finnish progressive rock (which there have been many), the whole thing kinda took on a life of its own as the collaboration with Musea Records created a synergistic effect that guaranteed an exposure to a worldwide network of tuned in prog aficionados salivating for something both creative, traditional and, of course, entertaining! After a diverse eclectic palette paving the way for even more sophisticated projects, in 2011 Musea Records released "Decameron - Ten Days in 100 Novellas - Part I" which isn't remotely Finnish but rather a collection of Italian tales excavated from the 14th century. The word DECAMERON is a neologism of the Greek words deca (ten) and mera (days) and THE DECAMERON which is subtitled Prince Galehaut is a collection of novellas written by the author Giovanni Baccaccio (1313-1375) and is structured as a frame story that contains 100 tales told by a group of seven young women and three young men who were sheltered in a secluded villa outside of Firenze (Florence), Italy in order to escape the black death plague that was rampant at the time. Well, three years after the first installment of this series comes DECAMERON - TEN DAYS IN 100 NOVELLAS - PART II which continues the themes in musical form with some artists making a reprise and yet others entering the Musea equation for the very first time.

Once again, this collection also consists of 4 compact disc each clocking in over an hour's length, holds a whopping 35 tracks beautifully played out by 34 exquisite artists. Only Robert Webb who provides the "Intro" and the "Outro" is represented twice. Once again most of these tracks are instrumental but many are not and exist in the realms of the world of classic 70s symphonic prog only with the most updated production values and interesting and compelling creativity attached to the sense of traditional prog values. Several artists like The Samarai Of Prog, Nexus, Karda Estra, Jinetes Negros and Ars Ephemera seem to owe their career to the Colossus Projects utilizing their prog talents on seemingly every album but there are many other newbies fully represented here as well with an equal variation of styles that despite being limited to the subject matter at hand with a stylistic approach to boot, all seem to rise to the occasion to unify under one thematic flag and produce some of the best that melodic symphonic prog has to offer in the 21st century.

Because of the retro nostalgic nature of these albums, DECAMERON - TEN DAYS IN 100 NOVELLAS - PART II also exudes a prog-by- the-numbers check list approach as it basically takes the playbook of the 70s bigwigs such as Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Yes, Jethro Tull, Genesis and Pink Floyd amongst others and takes excruciatingly detailed notes and then constructs their compositional prowess accordingly. While that may sound like a turn off from the get go, it is anything but as these artists under the confines of the musical limitations of the thematic structure are forced to exude their creative forces in limited yet seemingly unfettered ways. In that regard, all tracks are very much connected in not only theme but musically as well and the creative outlet comes in finding new ways of extending these limitations in various methodologies. The results are similar to the first installment of this sequel and utterly stunning in scope and delivery. Overall i would say that this 2nd edition is a bit more sensual than #1 with bands finding it in them to exude a slightly folkier take on the symphonic prog of the first edition.

Four discs of material at FOUR hours THIRTY-SIX minutes and THIRTY-THREE seconds is a whole lotta music to digest and despite the sense of overwhelming proportions is reigned in by one addictive take on symphonic prog after another with all bands rising to the occasion of producing incredibly melodic hooks that exude the truest sense of traditional prog elements but not over exaggerated nor overly sentimental as to sound like mere ripoffs of the greats of the past. While the influences are clearly worn on drooping sleeves, enough reverence for the past greats detracts from any disrespectful treading on sacred territories. This reverence is felt in full effect on the entire album as bands steer their influences into fresh new territories that sufficiently distance themselves from the past masters.

Some of my favorite tracks on this one include: the prog Italian funk of Intarsia on "9th Tale," the exquisite folky rock "First Tale (V, 1)" of The Samarai of Prog which even has sort of a Steely Dan jazz-rock vibe with its symphonic keyboards antics. Good guitar soloing as well, Steve Unruh's "Second Tale (V, 2) with its classical guitar meets Tullish folk flute escapades that take off into way cool heights, the tango turned synthpop symphonic prog track "Third Tale (V, 3)" by Ars Ephemera, the intriguing "Senogul - Ninth Tale (V, 9) which starts out sounding like an Indian raga but turns into the ever so rare mix of prog rock with traditional African tribal music, the synth rich riffs of the Italian "Camelias Garden - Tenth Tale (V, 10), the multi-themed 20 minute "Ninth Tale (VI , 9) by Unitopia, Karda Estra's "First Tale (VII, 2) with its tasty piano, chime action and cool progressive epic feel and D'AccorD's Bowie-esque "Third Tale (VII , 3).

This is yet another outstanding collection of prog tracks in the Colossus Project collection. I have to admit overall i prefer "Decameron - Ten days in 100 novellas - Part I" over this PART II ever so slightly as the tracks on here are just a tad below that high quality mark but there are no bad tracks here and so many great ones that i could write a review for each and every one. The packaging is off the charts beautiful with not only colorfully painted CDs but also contains a big fat booklet with not only gorgeously illustrated artwork but is also chock full of liner notes, lyrics and philosophical mythology all coming to gather in one sanctified place. Once again this is a whopping 4 disc album clocking in at over 4 and 1/2 hours and not even one track is worthy of skipping. I cannot recommend these Colossus Projects more for those who love the zeitgeist of 70s melodic symphonic prog with modern day spins and production value. It certainly doesn't get any more diverse or divine than this.
