3 stars These guys from Magenta (near Milan-Italy) participated a couple of Prog Fests, organized by Lethe, in between 1997-1999, and have been discovered by Raul Caprio by Kaliphonia(former producer of Deus Ex Machina): cause of these reasons I know them quite well, but my opinion is not affected by this fact...that is usually I don't like such progressive bands characterized by a derivative sound and vintage keyboards too,without any modern touch, even though I can make an exception here!! Certainly the sound of Hammond Organ is the symbol of a great Era (along with the introduction of Mini-Moog Synthezisers), but now We are fitted into 21st century and every Progressive band should have to "work in progress"...however their typical construction of suites (anyway remarkable here) works well, but the sense of "oldness" is hidden behind the corner (the same defects within the albums by H20, always produced by Kaliphonia). Nevertheless, apart from my considerations above, the album is pleasant and a bit prolix too, however being one of the best Italian albums of the recent times. Usually I'm in the habit to give a suggestion to the fans of vintage or analogical keyboards: that is I should like to hear either to a mix of vintage and digital sounds (listen to the albums by Kalaban) or to a "vintage" album only, but with a modern touch, like those ones by A Triggering Myth, in order to see a real music exploration, that could not be finished into the old 70's...this is my opinion and then I like also to give another piece of advice: listen to such a fine album like that one by Il Trono dei Ricordi and you understand what I mean!!

Make your own choice!!
