If you loved Weaveworld's first CD, then this one will knock you for six! An adept combination of fusion, classical themes and orchestration with beautiful melodies and amazing soloing from all concerned, especially keyboard extraordinaire, Lalle Larsson. If you buy any instrumental album this year, make sure it's this one!

Well, Lalle Larsson is an eclectic symphonic composer from Sweden, whose variety of music themes and harmonic solutions are getting increased of personal experience: in fact, especially within his jazz-progressive style, enriched by means of classic prog-rock, his performance is better in comparison to his execution at the keyboards along with Swedish bands such as Karmakanic or Agents of Mercy...but unfortunately the present work is an instrumental solo project and- except on a few albums like "Epilogue" by Anglagard or "Escenes" by Gotic, being recognized as well structured instrumental albums that perhaps I've appreciated till the end without getting bored, in this case I'm a bit perplexed and confused about it...don't get me wrong, his attempt in the prog fusion sytle is appreciable and moreover Mr Larsson is well supported by a Dutch musician, Richard Hallebeek and Stefan Rosqvist, without forgetting Walle Wahlgren, already drummer in the mentioned above Agents of Mercy. Nevertheless the sadness all along the compositions let me stay a bit depressed for a while, even though the main structure of this work is played by the bass player Jonas Reingold, obviously conscious of his role as a "rhytmical guide". "A Demon's Kiss" is a powerful tune, whose sense of nostalgia is growing towards the end; instead "Otherwordly" is characterized by Larsson's acoustic piano, enriched by means of some occasional guitars and other keyboards, able to create a good "coloured" wall of sound, this time more delicate in comparison to the opener of the album; then you can listen to the similar "City of Lost Souls", where the support by Jonas Reingold is important, being able to maintain a kind of melancholy and reminding me of the atmosphere in the early albums by King Crimson (if you "erase" the acoustic piano). At the end I cannot get crazy for the heavy-rock song entitled "Beyond Shadows" , but immediately after I appreciate the fusion prog of "Lemuria", enriched by means of a few "Holdsworthian guitars" and a pretty piano as well, until the final title track "Infinity of Worlds", in the vein of a Swedish jazz band called "EST", which concludes the work in the best manner.
It' not equal to Clearlight's "Symphony", a special French fusion prog band or like some other fusion/symphonic Canterburian works a-la Isildurs Bane, but it's worth checking out at least (add an half star in the evaluation, cause the present work is essential if you're completely fitted into such a versatile fusion prog style)!
