5 stars Wonderful surprise from Italian band! Album very rare, very touchful and full of emotions. I fall in love after first listening. Maybe somethink about whole music, surely influences of Genesis, dark side of Marillion music(She Chameleon, Incubus, Bitter Suite), almost gothic sounds in few moments. Asgard like Chaneton and Ghiribizzi decided to chose vocal in Fish's vein. But there is no comparison between Asgard and Marillion. Why? The answear is simple, Asgard focused rather on instrumental virtuoso, in their music, where every musician showed great potencial, vocal is only pleasant addition. It is hard to choose the best and the worst song, material on this album is very equal, everythink is perfect and on straight level. If you are well-disposed to Marillion(Fugazi), Like Wendy(Tales From Moonlit Bay),Gazpacho(Night) and appreciate own style, creativity and music based on dark tunes, you must have this album in your progressive collection. Full 5 stars, no weak points, great dose of beautyful music.
