5 stars I am no expert on italian symphonic prog. I haven't heard first two italian albums by PFM. However, this one I gladly have in my possesion.

So, because I am not influenced by "original", I think I can review Photos of ghost as a standalone effort. And what an album it is. A masterpiece! Really. I have no idea how those two ancestors are, but this is one of the most beautiful recording that I've ever heard. Nice quit passages mixed with strong malodies and exceptional musical skills. I am from Slovakia and I don't speak italian, but I never have problems with english on this album as so many people seem to have.

All songs are beautiful but I really like the soft opening of River of life. It has some unique atmosphere. Also Celebration is nice speedy song with a little bit of Yes in it.

To sum up, this is one of the best prog albums that I've heard and it is essential to all who are prog possitive.

Hejkal | 5/5 |
