Review
Italian prog /rock outfit led by main figure Andrea Stagni (Keyboard & Vocal) & musical friends, this is actually more rock than prog, still there are prog allegations. It is powerful (prog ) rock with excellent guitars (both chord and soli wise) to the fore, sometimes reminding me of the great sadly underrated Canadian prog rock outfit Max Webster (those of you whom doesn't know them, shame on you!) but also hints here and there to the sound of the original It Bites, with their very vigorous and intense power rock, with plenty of breaks and complex arrangements! Stagni produce excellent keyboards all over and his voice is incredible English sounding. Also I must mention the especially fine vocal harmonies/vocal arrangements. There are plenty of great tunes to be had here, well delivered and tastefully played from all involved. So who cares if this is not so much prog as rock?! This is a brilliant release (from the fine White Knight Records) it will for sure give you many hours of pleasure, as it did me (replay button)!! BUY!! My fav tracks? Here goes, in no particular order : "Picture frame" / "Another Lie" / "I´ll Be There" & "Wounded, part 1".
