Who knows Adagio? I hear no answer here but you don't know what you miss guys and girls! Adagio is a band with an amazing guitar player called Stephan Forte who has gathered great musicians in this band such as Dirk Bruinenberg, the drummer of the prog band Elegy.
But the original touch of the music played here is that it sounds very orchestral. In fact, a real orchestra is playing on background and the mix between metal and classic is gorgeous. Among piano, keyboards and guitars parts, a special feeling is spreading into your mind: 'this is good'! The incredible thing is to know that the singer is David Readman, singer of ... Pink Cream 69! Nothing to do with prog metal. However, his voice is fitting very well on the melodies and you can't deny that he is a good singer, whatever you could think of its own band...

Rating: 8 One of the best debut release I know. Does not let down any time. Easily worth a 10.
