3 stars Circle of Fairies is one of the forgotten and unnoticed symphonic/neo prog bands from Italy from the'90's. With one album rleased in 1995 named As the years go by issued by Vinyl Magic, this band captures the revival of prog in the '90's, bringing a good album, but overall something is missing. Is someting between symphonic prog in some parts melted with neo prog arrangements very much in same cathegory lets say with another italians band from hte '90's Fancyfluid or Secret Cinema. The album has some long pieces who are the best from here the last two The troubled wake and the title track clocking around 12 min with nice passages and quite good druming of female Elisa Pilotti. The album overall has some energic moments with keybords and guitars who are quite ok but in places is to much talking moments and less instrumental passages. The voice of Carlo Biorcio is ok, but I think is not on par with the rest of the musicins. All in all a good one, but far from being something of a real intrest, the album is produced by omni present italian musician Beppe Crovella, who is responsable for helping another dozens bands from that period like Secret Cinema, Romantic Warriors, Mosaic, Tower , maybe this band as same sound as these bands. 3 stars. Nice cover art btw. They disbanded a year later gone into oblivion.
