This is an ambitious two-disk set comprising interesting performances of GENESIS material by mostly unknown groups and individual artists (except perhaps for GALAHAD and a couple of other professional musicians). While not every track works perfectly, most are interesting because rare are the ones so faithful to the originals that nothing new is added to them…

Apprenderemo come la tartaruga che in Furore di John Steinbeck lascia cadere dal guscio semi di avena ottemperi a una strategia di dispersione della pianta. E quando mangeremo un fico, non potremo più ignorare lo straordinario rapporto, iniziato milioni di anni fa, tra l’infiorescenza carnosa non dischiusa (il frutto, per noi) e i suoi agenti impollinatori, delle vespe di pochi millimetri, che accedono ai semi ricevendo in cambio ospitalità per le proprie uova in apposite camere larvali. Impalpabili o scultorei, sopiti per millenni o germoglianti in un baleno, alati o zavorrati di grassi, appetitosi o letali, i semi sono fattori di civilizzazione e di socialità. Il libro di Silvertown ci familiarizza con l’esistenza germinale di ciò che insaporisce la nostra dieta, lussureggia nei nostri parchi, arricchisce la nostra farmacopea.

This is three-CD compilation released by Mellow Records as a King Crimson tribute. Among the performers are some of the most prominent contemporary progressive bands, with a wide variety ranging from the old-fashioned spaghetti-prog of Germinale or Malibran to the jazzcore ardour of Anatrofobia and Caboto. Some of the cover versions are quite calligraphic while others reshape the compositions more deeply (Nema Niko and Comfort bring in some electronica, Mariposa show their chamber-punk attitude - and their awful English pronounciation, Mosaic Orchestra almost have a fanfare sound), but they're all substantially faithful and well-played, with many great renditions and a very good overall result.

Famous among Progressive rock fans worldwide for being probably the classiest (and most complete) publication in this style, the Finnish magazine Colossus had the great idea to ask thirty bands of the whole world to illustrate the national Finnish epic: "Kalevala". It is made of old ballads and traditional songs, but is also part of a huge group of legends, which has inspired both J.R.R. Tolkien for his mythic "Lord Of The Rings" and composer Sibelius, among others. The idea that contributed to the creation of "Kalevala - A Finnish Progressive Rock Epic" was to use exclusively instruments of the Seventies, in order to obtain the "Aging" that the story needed…
