Editorial Reviews

Guitar virtuoso Luca Turilli, best known for his work as lead guitarist, co-composer and co-founder in film score metal band Rhapsody, has presented us with his new band: Luca Turilli’s Dreamquest. Not wishing this to be viewed just as a side project, Luca asserts that Dreamquest is an additional outlet for the abundance of overflowing musical ideas of this prolific composer. Fear not Rhapsody fans, Dreamquest, while an entirely separate band, will not interfere with Rhapsody’s progress. The debut album, Lost Horizons introduces a new style and technique to Luca’s already mighty repertoire, enriched by modern elements: new metal, opera, techno-electronic music and gothic-symphonic atmospheres.

Luca Turilli’s Dreamquest is the fulfillment of a dream that Luca has had in mind for many years and he is looking forward to the opportunity to perform Dreamquest material in a live forum as soon as possible. The music on Lost Horizons combines powerful metal instrumentation with angelic, operatic, female vocals to create a sound that might best be described as 'Symphonic Electro-Metal'. The first single Virus, is a prime example of the majestic musical flavour that Dreamquest is made of, while the operatic Sospiro Divino showcases the boundless possibilities presented by this exciting new band. Although favourable comparisons to popular acts are inevitable, make no mistake: Luca Turilli’s Dreamquest is a fresh and unique experience

Turilli again shows that he is one of todays great composers, of any musical genre. Metalheads may be disappointed that the driving speed metal which was so prominant on his first two solo albums has almost gone. What we have here are compositions and arrangements of a more complex and mature nature. As with all great artists Turilli continues to take musical risks. He must continue to take risks in the future and ignore the whinging 15 year old boys who only want to hear metal. The only disappointment, as with previous works, is for listeners for whom English is their first language the lyrics can be corny. It would be better if he wrote in his native Italian tongue. Highlights for me are Dreamquest, Sospiro Divino, Kyoto's Romance, Too Late, Dolphin's Heart and Gothic Vision.

I feel lucky that I live in the same age as Turilli and can look forward to his next work and appreciate his developement as a composer. Taking risks is what great artists do and he must continue doing so.

I have owned this mp3 CD for almost a year now and it is still my go-to music when I want to really jam to some great music.
The vocals are simply amazing and the song writing and composition are truly brilliant.
As I mentioned in my title, I would kill for a second cd with the exact cast. The song writing, music, vocals, composition, everything is just simply awesome. I found out about this CD via Pandora - after 3 thumbs up from the same CD cover, I decided to research and purchased. Also, I must say the cd cover art is amazing in itself.

Some of the songs really resonate with me, like the track titled Energy, but overall it is only a decent album. I don't regret the purchase because it took me quite awhile to track down an actual cd but I was hoping for more from the selections I'd been exposed to via I Heart Radio and Pandora. Likewise, while there is plenty of English to be found, there is also a lot of Italian and so be ready to enjoy some of the music on its own merit without necessarily understanding the words.

What we have here is Luca Turilli of Rhapsody fame working with a female singer to build a power opera album with slight techno leanings. Sounds like a recipie for disaster, but fortunately the kid comes up with the goods yet again. He has grabbed quite a gem in this female singer and the songs he has built here are very strong with not really any lowlights on the whole album. The vocalist has an opera voice for sure but does not sing in opera style the whole time. This lends itself well to the songs as pure non-stop opera vocals for me wear thin.

Luca Turilli has essentiall released three simultaneous albums:

Luca Turilli - The Infinite Wonders Of Creation

Dreamquest - Lost Horizons

Rhapsody - Triumph Or Agony

Female vocals in the metal world will not fit everyone's tastes and I'm sure there will be many Rhapsody fans that are not into this kind of album but those who give a fair chance will be pleasantly suprised in the long run.

As far as highlights I have to mention the jaw dropping opener VIRUS. This is one of the more techno songs but at the same time one of the heaviest and most close to power metal. Really, really amazing song you have to hear. Other highlights for me are the almost dance club style techno pop feel good song ENERGY and the slower but equally amazing DOPHIN'S HEART which contains some stellar opera vocals that send chills up and down your spine.

While the Rhapsody release and the Luca Turilli release are both mild disappointments compared to their predecessors, this new Dreamquest release is almost enough to make me forgive.

Last night I was at a Hate Eternal show, and this morning I'm on Amazon writing a raving review about this crap. I almost feel like a hypocrite right now...

For me, this truly is Luca's masterpiece. On so many levels, he has proven himself a modern composer with all the sensibilities to infuse classical with contemporary and create something original and intriguing. For a start, he approaches this album as more of a keys man, rather than a fretboard tickler (sorry, no money shots). Also, the fact that there is a female vocalist definitely helps to further set this apart from Luca's previous projects.

Metal fans beware: I would not really consider this to be a metal album. There are a lot of opera-style moments, but for the most part, it is a richly layered and complex pop album. If you are open to musical variety, and can enjoy music in a part of your house where your roommates can't listen in, then you should give this a try. It's certainly worth it.

I am a big classic metal fan. I love Maiden, Dio, Priest etc.....I found out about Luca Turilli a year or two ago while browsing music on Amazon. This cd or "mp3" version is great! It has really broadened my horizon on different generas of metal. Glad to have found Luca and is epic style fantasy metal.
I have seen the genre of this cd be called symphonic goth metal and yesterday saw it called electro symphonic power metal. Either way, it's great!
This cd is epic symphonic powermetal with a dark gothic tone. It's probably not a typical goth album since there is no screaming. The vocalist on the album is female and she is classically trained and actually sings, no typical metal yelling, she is actually singing and a times it is operatic and sings opera style. Her singing floats on top of the music perfectally. The actual music is not the hard heavy style you may think. It is neoclassical epic metal style. If your in to this type of thing or like femal vocalist on metal tracks than this is great. Luca Turilli is very famous for having an epic sound and this album doesn't dissapoint. Sometimes looking at really good reviews some claim that the person who left a great review "works for them" or is "just trying to help sell the alnum". This is a real review from a metal fan. jfeiwfhrevhnuivpi
