Sailor Free biography
SAILOR FREE is a Italian from the 90?s that released an eponymous album in 1992, and ''The Fifth Door'' in 1994. After that, they became inactive until the release of their new CD ''Spiritual Revolution'' in 2012. The band members are David PETROSINO (vocals, piano, mellotron, minimoog, arp synth, doff), Stefano BARELLI (electric and acoustic guitar), Stefano TONY (drums, percussions) and Alphonso NINI (bass guitar). They were friends and played together before SAILOR FREE.

The music of SAILOR FREE is focused on heavy guitar hooks mixed with atmospheric keyboards with a good use of mellotron and organ. They blend progressive rock with hard rock/psychedelic influences. There is a lot of variety in their music, including some smooth interludes to go along with the heavy stuff. You can hear influences of bands like PORCUPINE TREE and RIVERSIDE. The band are working on the new album "Spiritual Revolution Part 2".

Review by Windhawk
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars Italian band SAILOR FREE was originally active in the early 1990's, releasing two albums before calling it a day. They resurfaced as an active entity in 2010, and have since then issued a further two studio albums. "Spiritual Revolution: Part Two" is the most recent of these, and was released through Italian label Tide Records in 2016.

Those who tends to appreciate modern progressive rock that use and utilize elements similar to and comparable to the likes of Porcupine Tree should find this latest CD by Sailor Free to be an album well worth checking out. Dark, warm and appealing, and very well produced too, this is a quality example of contemporary progressive rock of the kind that should have a wide general appeal.

3 stars 3.5 really

Sailor Free is an italian band from early '90's with two album released before disbanding in 1995 and reformed in 2010 and releasing a new album in 2012.. Their second release from 1994 named The Fifth Door is the better one of the three and aswell a very pleasent surprise for me. Psychedelick rock with progressive rock leanings, excellent are the guitar parts from spacey ro more edges not far from Uriah Heep fame, heavy prog very well performed. Overall sound is very retro mainly because the vocalist who is also the keybordist have a very early '70's sound of the keybords, very psychedelic in aproach, not bad at all, his voice aswell is great fiting perfectly in the mix. The album is quite diverse from use of flute on some parts to almost barock violin and sax on other parts not far from VDGG sound (H to he era). All pieces stands as good, not aweak moment here, not highlits aswell, avery obscure album by totaly unknown band but this album worth investigated for sure. 3.5 with out hesitation, good towards great, great cover art aswell.

Thanks to andy webb for the artist addition.
