4 stars Oh yeah! The italians got sent away in the 2014 world cup football, but in the world of progressive rock they're still on the field and they got 3-0 before halftime.

Astrolabios album "L'isolamento dei numeri pari" shows me all the reasons why I love progressive rock. It's agressive, calm, hot, cool, complex and beautiful. All at the same time. This bands take a time machine back to 1975, let their hair down and just starts of where Biglietto per l'inferno left off. It's full of great guitar and keyboard chops and there are tons of all these cool and strange typical italian passages that just no other than the italians can do. The albums has lots of influences, all from the rockier side of Deus ex machina to the mellow parts of Pink floyd, but the closest I can think of is Biglietto per l'inferno, also not far away from Museo rosenbach. The band are mostly uptempo with agressive guitars and cool supporting keyboards with great vocals.

I also like that hidden within the songs are small parts from Tulls's Aqualung, some ELP and some other stuff. Cool.

Finally, what makes me love this albums is that it's fun to listen to. Few bands that I listen to gives me energy and makes it really fun. This albums makes it fun to listen to great progressive rock.

I only give 5-star ratings to timeless masterpieces, so I'll give this album a 4.5 star rating. It's not a masterpiece, but it's darn close. If you like italian progressive rock, get it! No, don't just get it, RUN to get it. FANTASTIC!!
