Logos was a band formed in the mid 90's and that towards end of that decade and beginning of the next one released 2 albums. After that the band went into a hiatus of 13 years without any new release.

Many changings in its line up happened since then and their third album L'enigma Della Vita (2014) was released after 6 years of recording (Between 2006 and 2012) and 2 more till the album was finally released by Andromeda Relix/Lizard Records.

I knew the band because some years ago they were giving away their 2 first albums for free in their official website and I gave a try on Ásrava (2001) by that time. It didn~t really appealed to me so I pretty much forgot about the band. Last year they contacted me about a possible review and here I am.

L'enigma Della Vita (2014) is not a bad album, I gave the CD several spins in the last months but it happen to have 3 things that just doesn't work for me in Prog music:

1 - The sound of Logos is based on the Prog made in mid 90's and all sounds - specially the keyboards - reflect that quite well.

2 - Production wise the album feels like a demo in many moments. That added to the weak vocals become a turn off for me.

3 - The album is far too long. 76 minutes of music, for me, is way too much and some moments felt as big fillers instead of the killer tracks they could come up in this big period they took to record it.

Now, for me it's pretty clear that this is an album that has plenty of moments to appeal to a wide variety of Proggers and tracks like 'Venino Da Un Lungo Sonno', 'L'enigma Della Vita' and 'Pioggia In Campagna' show that! But then again, for me, those 3 points I mentioned killed it for me!

Still is worth listening to the album!
