4 stars Gardenwall seams to me, that is one of the unknown and unfairly unnoticed band coming from Italy, led by composer and keyboardist Andrea Pavoni who did an excellent job here in this third album, from 2005 named From the treasure box. From the music offered here, symphonic prog very much in the vein of old school italian prog like PFM , to the stunning booklet and artwork made by Serena Riglietti, Greenwall done one great release, at least for me, beacause I see the others are no so impressed as I am. The music is very symphonic melted with almost new age parts, neo prog arrangements, very much '80's in sound, but the result is quite intristing and damn good. Very catchy release with some kreat keyboards parts , from ELP similarities to a more darker attitude, Greewall make a almost no mistakes here. Duo female/male is very well puted here in this context, Sophia Baccini one of the guest invited on this release from Presence fame offered some of her vocal abilities on Dondolando su laghi di smeraldo ot Il cunicolo, great voice who fits perfect in this kind of music. A fairly solid album this From the treasure box, very low rated, without reason, or I don't hear any bad moments here, is very much in the good and great tradition of Italian prog school. The album concludes in almost half hour Preludio to the End, who realy must be heared by many prog listners as possible, realy fantastic job, from sythesisers, drums, vocal arrangements, all are top notch, realy. Nothing for me to do, only to give 4 stars , easy and without hesitation, one of the pleasent albums coming from Italy. Recommended.
