3 stars A new band from Hellas with a very impressive following here in ProgArchives already. Is Ciccada the saviour of Greece ?

They could be that. Their music is very dense and cleverly put together. There is a lot of mellotron, moog and piano in their sound in addition to a thundering bass/drums constellation. Add guitars and flute too and you get this sound. That and Evangelia Kozoni's superb vocals. She sounds like Kari Rueslaatten though and I get the feeling that Ciccada is what Third And The Mortal could had been if they had gone prog instead of electronica. OK, just a personal reflection......

Ciccada's music is based on folk music with expansions into the eclectic prog landscape. But folk rock is mostly what we get here. Their place in the eclectic prog genre is justified though by the eclectic build up of their songs.

This is a very good album which should had been a great album with the addition of one or two killer tracks which would had elevated this album to a great album. It is not, but it is close enough to explain their popularity. There is no doubts Ciccada is onto something here and I have high hopes for their second album.

3.5 stars
