about

this title is OUT OF STOCK !!!

This is the third album of this very good band, widely
keyboard oriented.
The influences of Gianluca De Rossi are no less than
Banks, Emerson and Wakeman (according to their web site).
While "Genesis " was the major influence on their first
album, here and there some ELP & Crimson sounds could
be heard as well.
The ELP mark was stronger on their very good
"Outside Nowhere" and this album is even closer.
The first trio of songs is fully bombastic and the link is
very obvious. Inspiration is present as well, especially
during "Immersion".
Suspension is an ambient track, mostly instrumental.
Soft keyboards, until the vocals comes in.
Fully Gabrielesque, melancholic and a little bit sad.
On this album, songs with lyrics are all in English.
These musicians are very skilled and this album is enjoyable.
"Uncontrolled Dreams" which is the longest track (almost nine minutes) is almost a tribute to "Genesis".
For the first time, a very good guitar solo can be noticed.
In this ocean of keys, it was welcome.
You'll get the confirmation just after during a strong synth break.
One almost believe that Chris Squire is holding the bass
during the finale.
A very good song, probably the best one from "Posidonian Fileds".
The closing number is a mellow ballad,
a blank and some folkish notes to finish...
