4 stars Ske is, as we all know by now, the solo project of Paolo Botta, the keyboardplayer of Yugen. Which made me think this was an avant-garde album. Wrong.

The roots of this album is in avant-garde. But this album branches out into other directions too and is not a purebred avant-garde album by any means. 1000 Autunni takes a lot of elements from symph prog, eclectic, avant-garde, RIO, zeuhl, jazz, folk and Canterbury. All these elements are put into a blender and given some minutes to fuse together. Don't do this in your own kitchen, btw.

The result is 1000 Autunni. An album that is both majestic and full of life. More life than I would expect from an eclectic prog album.

This is by all means a great album. From the symph prog like opener Fraguglie to the final two Hatfield & The North like closing tracks. This is an unmissable album for anyone into Canterbury prog as well as jazz and eclectic prog. Enough said.

4 stars
