3 stars "Modern Mediterranean influences" - what he said!

3.5 stars actually

I got used to dozens of NEW Italian bands sounding very RETRO-like , and only THE WATCH managed to preserve unique equilibrity between Retro Prog and Modern Prog.Considering this one - I should take away this CD from my ITALIAN PROG box and put it into MODERN PROG one! Hardly comparable to anyone, CS managed to create pretty enjoyable and melodical album of SIMPLE SONGS with Progressive feeling. Rich arrangements, great musicianship, emotional yet soft vocal - recommended for those who about to discover new Italian Prog scene. It has reminded me a bit of MOONGARDEN's "The Gates of Omega" - same way strange but beautiful, a bit CARPTREE-like modernly sounding but good anyway. Recommended!
