3 stars Another Italian clone of DREAM THEATER,and that's too much already!Well,they aren't at all bad,no way,but it seems that in the prog metal zone,the comparaison with the American icons is made automatically after we hear some notes of any album which is in this style!Solid production for this album,very dense and compact,very clever keybords interventions and a good vocalist aren't sometimes enough ingredients to make a good album!Overall it's an album of one hour and in the end we ask ourselves when will be the next audition?!?!This is the paradox of this kind of albums,they have long compositions with plenty of breaks and changing tempos,the musicians are capable but the compositions,even they aren't bad at all,they don't have anything catchy or spectacular!Technically everything it's ok ,but it misses that spark of inspiration and atractivity!I can imagine if the band will not have a second album after this promissing debut,they will fall into an anonymous status ,they will be shortly forgot and that's a pity!We hope they will make a second next step shortly and they will bring new elements in their music,which is technically correct,but the compositions must be stronger and better defined!PROXIMA CENTAURY ,the instrumental track is impressive and it seems that HEART OF THE SUN is like a fish in the water in instrumental compositions or passages! GIANLUCA FERRO is a great guitar player with impressive skills,just check his solo album,and I have the feeling that sometimes it must be more democracy in the band!!Let's hope for a better second try! 3,5 STARS for the ambition!
