3 stars Eris Pluvia is one of the italian prog bands that revitalized the early 90's prog scene with the album Rings of earhly light, released in 1991 at Musea records. Well, to tell the truth I was not so knock out by the music offered as many reviewers from here, but is an ok album to my ears, maybe little more then ok in places. Eris Pluvia playes a type of symphonic prog melted with folk and pastoral passages, very much similar with Ezra Winston, Rousseau or even some Camel influences are present. The arrangemnts are highly melodic, well orchestrated and with plenty of good moments, nice acustic elements added and violin aswell. Overall I like it, but is to much mellow parts and only few sparse segments of more energy infuse, I can't say is a bad thing but not really my cup of tee for every day listning. The opening track is by far the best from the album Rings Of Earthly Light clocking around 18 min divided in 5 parts, capture all the best moments Eris Pluvia had and has since then, I think the best tune they ever made. All in all, a decent and pleasent album, but to me the release fail to impress me big time, I think 3 stars is fair enough.
