4 stars Bright Horizon is one of those quirky rock bands which offer up something a little different than the standard progressive fare. The delicious intro Libertango begins the "journey" with a splendid mix of melodic keyboard and guitar work but the real opening of the album is the hard rocking swagger of Burning Hope- a track which rocks from the start.. The bridge picks up a notch and the chorus turns sonically monstrous, with heavy, layered guitars and a strong, aggressive lead vocal. Virtually all other tracks have their excellent points as well: "Daybreak" is a swift mover, "The Shade of the Hill" is a pure melancholic song with a delicious leading piano, the nine-plus minutes of "Les mystčres du chateau hanté" has a cool orchestral part and a very catchy metal riff with an extraordinary rhythm section. A good ballad ("Illusion meets reality" ) has been included too on "Oneiric Reality". This softly song allows Rock to showcase a more melodic and passionate side to the vocal talents of Gabriele Toralbo. "Abitta Funky" , as the title suggests, it's a Very upbeat, funky groove track. A nice change indeed! With "Discophobia" and "Opposite Symmetry" the band moves back to a darker sound. ( "The Shade of The hill") Definitely I really have enjoyed this album ..Bright Horizon brings a flashy style of progressive rock. I think that Oneiric reality is a Cd that all the lovers of good music should snap up immediately. A great offering for the fans.
