Otra banda italiana en el blog cabezón pero con una onda un poco distinta (y menos interesante) a la de la mayoría de bandas italianas publicadas en nuestro espacio cabezón.
El otro día Lino publicó un disco de un grupo polaco de Neo progresivo llamado Albion, con voces femeninas, muy fácil de escuchar y bastante agradable, y me hizo acordar a este grupo italiano que justamente estaba escuchando. Aclaro que no es un disco esencial como otros que estamos publicando, pero si te gustó el disco de Albion o te gusta el viejo Marillion, con sencillas y agradables líneas melódicas, este disco te puede gustar bastante...
Este es el segundo disco de la banda, y no tengo mucho más para agregar, vean si les agrada y si quieren se lo llevan. No les va a reventar la cabeza (como otras cosas que hay publicadas) pero tampoco les va a caer mal.


Second album from this neo progressive band that shows, at the same time, interesting and some weak points.
CONTRAPPUNTO's sound is based on keyboards (specially piano) and a female voice potentially very good, but not really expressive. Rythmically, music isn't very complex, going from jazzy tunes to classical approaches, including some soft blues soundscapes.
The album isn't bad, with nice atmospheres and relaxing moments, but there's a lack of melodic line and playing isn't the best: i.e., keyboardist seems to sail between Rick Wakeman and Richard Clayderman beside the above mentioned singing style.
Among contemporary Italian bands, CONTRAPPUNTO isn't the winner, but worth a listen and -if you don't looking for the most elaborated music- "Lilith" has enjoyable moments.

I am a bit disengaged by this album.
This album has everything a good progressive rock album, bordering to a rock album should have. Decent vocals, decent melodies, decent musicianship and a decent packaging.
The music is somewhere between Neo-Prog and AOR. Add some jazz elements and you get the zest of this album. There are some good guitar solos here. But most of the music is underpinned by the female vocals and the use of piano and keyboards. Even some hammond organs is included here. But this is not RPI as we knows it. The sound is much more leaning towards today's Marillion. But most of all; towards AOR. I have problems finding any progressive rock elements here. The vocals too is a bit flat and uninspiring. The quality of the tracks are rather good.
My main problem is that there is nothing here that either offend me or amuse me. Everything is good here......... and just that. This album is a flat and featureless as the prairie in the USA. In other words; this album gives me some pleasure, but does not satisfy me. The guitar solos brings this album up to a three stars............. barely.
