4 Moonsong - The Conclusion


How can mere mortals make such beautiful music!
If you've heard Moongarden's previous two albums
and liked what you've heard, then do yourself a favor
and have a listen to "The Gates of Omega".
I admit I was skeptical when I found out that
Riccardo Tonco was no longer on vocals.
Yet I was pleasantly surprised by their new vocalist
Luca Palleschi, who does a superb job.
To be honest, the lyrics are very sparse, leaving plenty
of room for sounds that are out of this world.
This music is simply magical: dreamy, atmospheric
yet so tight it rips you apart at every turn.
The musical phrases and movements are hypnotic
and the production impeccable: even through a pair
of mere headphones you can actually feel the bass
through your body (never thought this possible!)
This is Italian prog at its best.
