"..in the beginning, there was God. Like all the creatures of the universe, God had a place He called home. This place is SHAKARY, the center of the universe.." "Alya" is a concept double album with strong melodic material and grand moments and gestures that many prog lovers are sure to like. The story is based on themes from the bible, sound and artwork are done on a very professional level.
The sound is very similar with CLEPSYDRA, the reason for this is not only the guitar work but also the lead vocals done by CLEPSYDRA's lead singer Aluisio Maggini. The songs are very melodic, a little bit more complex than CLEPSYDRA and the use of violin and trumpet varies the whole thing. It is a very good 70's style prog that hints to the 80's. PFM could have made this record in the 80's! Neo prog at his best. The main merit of "The Last Summer" is the continuous activity of instrumental arrangements, which is quite a rare case within the framework of Neo Progressive. Read more on Last.fm.
