3 stars Darkened RPI is what my ears is being exposed to here. This is indeed doom prog rock. Funeral doom like in places. But there is still no doubt that this is a thoroughbred Rock Progressivo Italiano album.

The vocals is very dark and almost like an opera. Some of the material is delivered like an opera. The melodies is based on keyboards and piano. Hammond organ is also well used here. There is no guitars here though. Fair enough. Both the ambience & the sound is as dark as the devil's paintkit.

The quality is good throughout on an album that truly stands out from the rest of the RPI scene. I am not overly enthusiastic about this album. But I still find it agreeable to my ears and my (whatever left of) my brain. There are some dull theatrical sound effects here which does not please me. But the proper songs are good. Well done to Akron and it is a great pity that this band is no longer among us.

3 stars
