    Dropshard (for PT/Riverside lovers)

    'Anywhere But Home' is the first full-length release of Italian band DROPSHARD. It has a variety of songs, from the pastoral ‘Look Ahead’ to despair laden 'Changing Colours', from acoustic 'Again' to closing track ‘Look Behind’. There’s darker edged bonus ‘Freedom Supermarket’ also…

    Their music is moody, sometimes uplifting, but always making good use of flowing melodies with superb instrumental and vocal harmonies completing the picture.

Everything comes together - Sebastiano Benatti's guitar work is exemplary, keyboards contribution of Tommaso Selleri is subtle, Alex Stucchi puts in a strong performance on bass, drummer Tommaso Mangione is spot on throughout and Enrico Scanu takes care of flute and lead vocals.

This CD should appeal to a wide ranging prog audience.

    The only slight let down I felt over CD ‘Anywhere But Home’ is regarding to its packaging. The booklet is nicely presented. As well as the lyrics to all songs, it contains a short introduction to the idea of this album. Probably, it’d have been nice to have had any picture of the band.
