4 stars Real/Surreal

Alio Die's 2007 "Eleusian Lullaby" is a 3 piece set in collaboration with Martina Galvagny, and it delivers an interesting display of contrasts. For starters and kind of a drawback for the average prog audiophile, you kind of have to be previously aquainted with this musician's works to actually enjoy what this release offers, but if not let me kind of explain it to you.

Taking into account the ever slow-paced evolution in Alio Die's musical proposals and musical idiom, this one is more unmusical yet harmonius in comparison to earlier works . The flowing nature of both musician's languages, but especially Martina Galvagni's transparent unintelligible singing voice, adds up ironically the darkest and mysterious tones but in such small and perfectly threaded dosages as to become part of this oniric, back to nature, droning lullabies and not the whole project itself.

Another good and not that far fetched way to kind of understand this album's concept, will be to mention some referentials but not in the sense of comparisons, because there are none, will turn out to be Dead Can Dance but without their complex musical perfections. These lullabies instead, are detached most of the times from being musically rational and closer to the emotional/environmental hypnotic state of dreaming literally speaking not just the conceptual cliche.

A feast of obscure yet beautiful micro-succeeding passages glued in sometimes by the haunting singing, it is ephemeral in disguise, but rich in on coming and on going instrumentation and ever transfiguring compositional ideas, as to invite the listener to dwell in with his entire participation, but makes no compromises in its own perfectly evolutive oniric musical idiom.

****4 PA stars.
