Sven B. Schreiber I admit that I haven't heard nor read Alex Carpani's name so far, although he's around for quite some time now. This is even more inexplicable regarding the obvious fact that he's an exceptional composer and musician. Prog is desperately in need of people like him. The main problem with contemporary prog is that tracks usually consist of opulent bridges joining overly trivial musical themes, leaving the listener discontent with unsatisfactory patchwork. Actually, it should be just the other way round, and Alex Carpani shows how to do it right. On this album, his carefully crafted themes flow seamlessly into one another, largely eliminating the need for bridges altogether. This gives his music an unparalleled and highly rewarding density. And thanks god, there's no epic on this album... Favorite track: Entering the Sanctuary.
