Outstanding effort by Roberto Mammarella and his team, the music that hasn't changed a day, exceptional Ultravox cover (Fade to Grey) and fantastic dark atmosphere throughout the whole album with ending credits by Zbigniew Preisner's music composed for "La Double vie de Véronique" (1991). A mixture of doom, gothic and other elements rooted in modern rock and metal, a must-have for those who consider themselves musical connoisseurs.
