3 stars The last album of Osada Vida from 2008 is in my opinion less convinceing than the previous one. After I listning and been quite impressed about Three seats behind a triangle I said to myself I have to buy thier last one. Well, besides that my CD is in digipak format, great art cover, excellent inner sleeve, the music is not so top notch as on Three seats. Is a little more light, sometimes I have the impression I listen to mellower side of Riverside or some Pain of Salvation here and there. The music as a whole is not bad, not by far, the keys again sounds realy strong and they are without doubt the cherry on the cake here, as I said on prevoius review of Three seats, Rafael Paluszek is a master of keys, delivering some very intristing chops on keys aswell some very strong interplays with the guitar of Bartek Bereska , who also did a great job on this album. Well now the voice is less intristing as it was on previous album, and has some good momets and some realy mediocre like on Liver - Mr Liver's Letter To You. The best piece is for me the opening track called Body - The Body Parts Party , the rest are ok. This is a concept album about the parts of the human body like liver, brain, heart, etc but also about the most essential elements of the human body, if I can call them like that , muscles and bones. So, not an usual concept, I never saw a concept or something related in prog music till this abum. All in all not so strong as the Three seats behind the triangle, witch I find it the best they ever done so far, this album The body parts party is nevertheless a good album but less convincieng and intristing, so I will give 3 stars or more like 3.5.
