4 stars Not electronic like prog. Alio Die is simply himself, again.

Tough to conceive someone who has insisted constantly in the use of acoustic instruments "electronic". Hard luck for Alio Die to have been invited into such a marginal "district". Anyway, when you come to terms that the "symphonic" sub-genre, has been kind of kidnapped by not exactly "symphonies", I suppose there was no place left for him to dwell. But he is no, and does not need to be, Tangerine Dream nor Yes!

A thread of droning like Hildegard Von Bingen's masses interwined with Vivaldi like figures, ethereal Indo like passages, with touches of Perotin's minimalism and a Bach's like SLOW counterpointing. Compressed into short individual songs, connected solely by the constant "reminders" of planet earth sounds, embedded in two long timed tracks. (30+ minutes)

A thrill to meditate on, listen to, or simply enjoy at a distance.

For audiophiles who appreciate the names mentioned above, or original slow-paced music.

****4 PA stars!
