Prog Reviewer
5 stars Gianluigi Gasparetti's (1958 - 2013) aka Oophoi, "Bardo", 2002, is an almost sunken progressive electronic treasure , discovered by few and the kind of masterwork that will only find its true magnitude in perceptive electronic, prog/electronic music followers. BARDO is deep, creative, uncommonly attractive and unique in *almost all of its forms, structures, music language and music composition. *(If not for a quiet used vocal/chorus treatment on track 3 "A Path Of The Lights",I would have written all).

Flawless in all these regards and dwelling relentesly between highly beautiful melody lines and detached, dreamy/industrial/obscure/dim-lighted environments simultaneously, it grows deeper as its slow paced motion progresses and these common elements never cease or weaken in any form but only through a pitch-perfect transformation guided by the increasingly inspired melody lines, which dictaminate the course to be taken.

4 fully attired tracks, unique in concept and appearance each, invite the listener to pay full attention to its subtle delicacies, but their trance/hypnotic essence is upfront and quivering with fresh proposals and details to entice your attention easily.

A masterwork from any given angle!

*****5 "FULL" PA stars.
