Destination Set To Nowhere

Rated 4.24/5 (84.8%) (50 Votes)

Anybody up for some Italian Prog? Vision Divine have been around for a long time, doing the prog band thing of trying to sound like Dream Theater, until the paradigm shifted and they had to start trying to sound like Pagan's Mind to get any attention. This band has everything you would expect: crisp production, tight playing, and Fabio Leone on vocals. Though it must be admitted than Fabio sounds really good here - maybe better than he ever has.

I don't know, this is solid, and the band has chops, but none of these songs are particularly memorable, and once I had heard the album, I didn't really need to hear it again. For prog, this has surprisingly little depth, and the replay value is limited. It sounds exactly like you think it will, and no more than that. This is listenable, but not really essential.
