2 stars Some time ago, I decided to check the Progarchives top100 list so I could check what was going on with the Prog World.

One of the albums that had high rated on the list was Dodecahedron (2012) by the Italian duo Daal. Therefore, I decided to try it. This is the band's fourth album and it has been so praised in all websites? As I usually say to everyone: do not believe the hype!

Although I reckon that, the album is professional in all levels I had a hard time in finding the music attractive and catchy in any level. I admit that I have some issues with instrumental albums, but I have listen some wonderful instrumental works, like the new Willowglass, for example, so I can't say I completely dislike instrumental music.

The case here is that I found myself listening the album and not going anywhere, the band's music is supposed to be like a journey, but they were not able to take me with them. So it's a fail in their goal, for me. 70 minutes long, no names in the tracks and a continuous music that take me nowhere? No, thanks.
