4 stars SHAKARY are a musical project put together by a numerous of musicians. They started the project 5 years ago and now it's finally finished and released as a double-CD. The concept and the lyrics have a religious theme. The music is a mix between GENESIS, IQ, JETHRO TULL, PINK FLOYD, SALEM HILL and YES. The highlights are the album opener "Sunset", "Time Trap", the acoustic instrumental "Starless Nights", "Seals", "The First Inquisition", "Pain?", the albums masterpiece "The Last Drink" and the closing track "Open Skies". The only negative thing would be the vocals. CLEPSYDRA's Luisio Maggini who does the most of the vocals isn't a bad vocalist, but he has a strong Italian accent. I think that he'd better singed in his native language, as I'm very fond of the powerful Italian language. Therefore the album is at its best on the instrumental tracks and in the lengthy and outstanding instrumental passages. The album has a very good production. Partially the music lacks of originality, but all in all this is a brilliant project, and it's one of the best albums so far in 2000.
