3 stars A very curious record, to say the least! It took me quite some time to figure out if I liked or not. It is simply too different from the symphonic rock from Spain Iīm used to. In fact, they donīt sound like spanixh at all. their music is very international, and I initially thought they were from England or USA. if Silent Running has many excellent parts, while others are not as good. At first this CD sounded too modern for my taste, but after repeated listenings, I found their music quite interesting. Itīs a mix of modern prog (mostly), neo and classic prog (even with some Beatles influence on parts).

The most striking feature are the guitar parts: always brilliant perfomed, they are creative, melodic, and tasteful. Those terrific solos are the CDīs highlights. The keyboards parts are also excellent with some very good solos too. Alex Warner is a very good singer, able to handle all the different moods and styles that Pi2īs offers in Silent Running. The production is very good and it is very clear that those guys are talented and capable of writing fine tunes. Some parts of this CD are gorgeous and very moving. However, the trackīs flow is a bit uneven, making it less enjoyable that it could (and should) have been. The musicanship is top notch. But the mix is still not totally mature, I guess.

In the end I can say that I became very curious to hear P-2īs earlier works. Judging by this Cd only, I can say that their sound is very promising and will please more open minded progheads, specially the ones who like fine melodies. Rating: good (sometimes very good). 3 stars.
