This is a really really nice album. Imagine that somewhere in the late 80s Mike Rutherford (bringing his Mechanics drummer), David Gilmour (bringing in Jon Carin on keys and Tony Levin on bass) joined forces with a young Steve Hogarth (who at times would channel his inner Gabriel). Sounds like an odd combo and you would expect it not to work but De Angelis holds it together very nicely. The first half of the album is maybe a bit more Rutherford / Mechanics like and the latter half clearly Floyd inspired with musical tip-of-the-hats to both The Final Cut and The Division Bell. A very cool discovery.
