4 stars Malaavia is continuing their journey around Italy, Northern Africa and the Middle East with this, their second album.

As on their debut album, previously reviewed by myself some weeks ago, their sound is lush, full of intricate details and a pastoral soundscape. The female vocals are excellent and so is the male vocals. The use of instruments are pretty intelligent and sophisticated. It will take too much space to list them here, but the band deserve huge credits for getting this spot on.

The music is both pastoral and pretty passionate at the same time. I also detects a lot of Spanish passion in this music here in addition to influences listed over. The music is in other words great. I have two gripes with this album and that is the inclusion of some English vocals. Only some lines, but they sticks out like sore thumbs on an otherwise great album. My only other gripe is the lack of some truly great songs.

But the result is still good enough to make this a great album. I believe the resident Rock Progressivo Italiano team may find this album so great that they will float off into deep space.

Malaavi has cemented their position as one of the best new Rock Progressivo Italiano bands with this album. I am eagerly awaiting their third album as they announced in our interview with them.

In the meantime; get this album.
