Here's the beginning of the review:
Accordo Dei Contrari return to the publicís ear in 2011 with their second full-length album, Kublai. This new album follows their 2007 release, Kinesis, which to my ears was a pleasant, energetic and enjoyable listen and signaled a promising future.
Indeed, this future is now realized with Kublai. The new album is much more diverse, filled with different influences and sounds; from jazz-rock (most of the album) to progressive rock (throughout the album) to a ballad (first part of LíOmbra di un Sogno) to Arabic elements (Arabesque). The band playing morphs from faint and delicate to heavy and powerful and back again.
There are 6 tracks on this album, 5 instrumentals, and one song where Richard Sinclair sings a song he wrote the lyrics for, dedicated to his dog that passed away.
