Sven B. Schreiber It's not a big surprise that this Italian prog band plays excellent symphonic rock, once you know that both of the songwriters, Ettore Salati and Fabio Mancini, were members of the Genesis-inspired band "The Watch", featured together on the top-notch album "Primitive". Moreover, Ettore Salati contributed guitars to several Alex Carpani albums, including "The Sanctuary", while Fabio Mancini was part of the ELP Tribute Project. The latter heritage is clearly noticable on "No Way Out", which might have been titled "Son Of Tarkus" as well. Other notable influences appear to be Camel, Genesis of course, and even some 70's Kraut - Lucifer's Friend's unique album "Where The Groupies Killed The Blues" comes to mind while listening to "Down The Street". Oh, and one more important thing: I highly appreciate the nice thank-you letter from the band, included in the download. Maybe I'm a bit old-fashioned here... but those are things I keep on remembering forever - besides the splendid music. Favorite track: Down The Street.

Peter Jones This is, in places, pretty mellow stuff to the extent I thought "Hm, lift music" a couple of times. But then it changes, bringing in the heavy guns, and changes, swinging around to be airy light jazz, and changes again to be cutting prog. Dynamic and engaging with the flow between the last four of five tracks really smooth.

Thanks to progstreaming for getting this one to me! Favorite track: Challenge To An End.
