After listening to the wonderful Doracor albums Transizione
(2001) and Evanescenze (2005) I was very curious to this
new album from multi-instrumentalist Corrado Sardella
and his band.
Well, again Doracor managed to make a compelling album
that is inspired by mid-Genesis (like the track Dimensione 4)
but this time less obviously than in the past.
The compositions sound melodic and alternating featuring
lots of howling guitar runs and pleasant work on keyboards
(from soft choir-Mellotron waves and mellow Fender Rhodes
piano to fat synthesizers).
I also enjoyed the wide range of instruments like saxophone, vibraphone and violin like in the titletrack.
The vocal parts are sung by a male and female singer,
especially the song "Il Giardino Di Pietra" contains a great performance by Gianna Chilla, blended with biting electric
guitar, very exciting! If you are up to compelling symphonic
prog, this album is a tasteful and pleasant discovery.
