From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars 4,5 stars !!! In my opinion another fantastic album with a very few review number ( only 3 until now and 8 ratings) . Is lamentable, I think is one of better albuns of 80's ( for many , the lost decade). PROVIDENCE "And I'll Recite An Old Myth" is an album with the certain mix of old and new progressive rock. In fact you recognize influences in Track 1 "Galatea" a musical suite where, the introduction reminds EL&Palmer ( with a guitar in "underground" ) after this the music breaks in a more swinging theme with the beautiful female vocals ( without the very common exaggeration in Japanese bands) a great guitar, a almost "slap" bass guitar, fantastic acoustic piano /sythesizers and a "explosive" drums, the sequence sounds like a jam session and finally a modern "waltz".... simply taking away your breath. Track 2 "Eternal children" is a heavy, almost hard theme. Track 3 " Dream seeker's mirage" brings a lyrical melotrom/organ/acoustic guitar accompaniment and recalls THE MOODY BLUES and KING CRIMSON , the middle section is electric guitar solo and the last a "delicious" femalle choir with keyboards and bass. The last track "And I'll recite an old myth from..." is the best of the album with some GENESIS "hints" plus symphonic/jazzy... but I will leave for your imagination... The album is close of perfection. My rate is 4 stars !!!
