3 stars US project GIANNOTTI is the creative vehicle of Robert Giannotti, a composer and musician with a distant past as a member of progressive rock band Jasper Wraith, and while Giannotti himself decided to focus on other areas of life some decades back he did reappear occasionally as a contributor to some of Jeff Cannata's ventures over the years. "The Great Unknown" marks Gianotti's return to the music scene in a more marked manner, and was released through Northford Pines Music, which is his own label (most likely).

US composer and musician Giannotti has created an ambitious first venture out as a solo artist, exploring a blend of acoustic rock, traditional folk music and classical music within what merits a description as a progressive rock general context. The compositions appear to hone in on qualities such as mesmerizing, dream-laden and atmospheric, with harmonies, melody and the arrangements themselves being more important than the individual instruments. Certain aspects of mix and production leave something to be desired though, so those sensitive to such issues should approach this album with some caution. Other than that, this should be a fine album to get familiar with if progressive rock of this general nature is something you tend to enjoy.

Windhawk | 3/5 |
