3 stars 3,5 stars !!! COSMIC DANGER "Universe at Large" , soon at first audition is easily identified the main influences in this work : ASIA, UK, GENESIS , EL&P something of SAGA. In fact the music is strongly linked to late 70's and early 80's sound, obviously due ASIA , UK etc ... you can find in almost all tracks the majesties of progressive rock "apex", as for instance the guitar solo in track 1 "Champions" a clearly Howe's allusive passage, the keyboards in track 2 "Freedom Flyer" a mix of Banks/Emerson/Jobson keyboards with Brufford's "jazzy" drums. This is album tonic ! But be a certain unbalance between guitar and keyboards ( in some tracks keyboards dictating sound almost eclipsing guitar) in fact in the last track "Final Dusk" I can't perceive the sound of guitar and I think which this prejudices a better rate, in fact ( with the notable exception of second track ), the best tracks are track 3 "Skydiving", track 6 "Endless Voyage" and track 8 "Fiev Year Mission" exactly where this unbalance don't exist ! My rate is 3 stars , but I emphasize which this album deserves a place in my collection !
