"The Eye of the Lizard sees nicely this album with 80's sounds, which expresses the meaning of life in a fresh way through eight tracks that I think are fabulous, my absolute favorites are" Life "," I Remember " and "Made of Stars", which with that robotic voice in the bridge does nothing but adding "coolness" to a disc that is already "cool" by itself, without words. The singing of Jago Careddu is very beautiful, with a clean and a very American English, in pure Kansas and Asia style, halfway between a "Wayward Son" and a "Heat of The Moment". Even the keyboards of Saal Richmond, perfectly in line with the sound of the album, are very clean and well contextualized, very reminiscent of those of Geoff Downes of the Buggles / Asia, very fresh! Abramo De Cillis' guitars are simply perfect, little to say while Gianni Cuccureddu's bass remains somewhat in the background, quite dominated by the power of the singing and the other instruments, but it doesn't matter, it doesn't change my ideas in any way about the album. The drums of Marzio Francone are powerful. Great job guys! A record to listen right now! " -LGM.
The 2nd studio album from italian band IN-SIDE, digitally published in december 2019 and then in CD by Andromeda Relix, with exclusive distribution of Maracash Records, with a special sound: classic AOR with a pinch of prog, a squeeze of melodic rock, in the mood of the original ‘80s sound and spirit.
“LIFE” is an 8 tracks album, the narration is focused on the main events of normal existence, some times extraordinary... Musically more intriguing than ever before, “LIFE” is filled with lots of melodies, fascinating choirs and technical excalations. Created for exigent listeners, but with an easy approach to good music.
Recommended to enthusiasts and fanatics of Alan Parsons Project, Toto, Work Of Art, Europe, Fortune (and so on), the band will be easily appreciated for the technical maturity in songwriting and the fluid execution of the songs, always tinged with AOR tunes, heavy metal passages and pump rock reminiscences, with extensive use of keyboards, guitars and choirs, all exalted by agile and heartbreaking vocals. It took time to be done, but now “LIFE” is here and is ready to truly become a game.
