Although this album may sound too cheerful, we have to admit that there is a wonderful work here.

The guitar is addictive and perceived almost like a hug; whilst piano and keys offer the typical prog sound, this time with more enthusiastic and with a decidedly contemporary touch.

The sound is embellished also thanks to the plain bass sound, invigorating and deep at the same time.  This is the kind of album you listen to whenever you are comfortable enough about your feelings and which would be a perfect background to a particular elite of people.

Not bad at all, for a genre that has made history and continues to have its own life separated from what is considered fashionable these hard times, even for music.
