The latest and third effort of Italian trio Mindflower is a concept album shaped as a rock opera. The story is about a creature of light that travels from chaos to purity. The CD contains 26 tracks with a total time of eighty minutes, so there are many short tracks and rather short musical fragments linked to each other. These tracks range from quiet to very quiet with sometimes a fragment that resembles rock music. In general, the album makes a fragmented impression that makes listening to it less enjoyable. Frankly speaking, this CD is just boring. The CD-booklet states that the music takes some time to absorb, so you will slowly start to appreciate it… Sorry, but I don’t have that kind of patience.
