4 stars Damn, i had to write this review again because it didn't save itself. But well, i ended up lowering the rating to 4 stars so maybe now i have a different general view of this work. At first i was very very impressed and particularly happy because the compositions sounded, imho, like a completely new prog subgenre: video game prog. After like 10 listens i wrote that review and gave this album 5 stars. Now i feel like the album, despite it's big originality, lacks a little seriousness. Contradictory in fact, because if you just read the song titles you will notice the humour they have. But the seriousness i'm talking about is that i think they should have been more selective. In between the more fun, original, groovy, even cute musical moments/songs (i'm hardly ever a specific reviewer, apologies) there are many boring and uninspired ones. That, i suppose, is the only "problem" i have with this album. This is a video game prog album with its roots in video game music, jazz/fusion and prog metal. The Final Veredict is 4 stars because: -I am SURE that this is a new prog subgenre. -The music is very original. -Impressive grooves. -Unique tones in the keys. -Performance is perfect; one of the most tight basses i've ever heard (comparing to jazz/fusion experts here, believe me).
