This is the sixth album for the famous italian progressive rock band Moongarden who, after their two releases "Round Midnight" and "Songs from the Lighthouse", gained fame as an emerging reality. Their style, wisely forged by mastermind Cristiano Roversi, can be called 'Progressive Crossover'.

The band here introduced a stylistic contamination without giving up to their progressive roots. Lyrics are really modern as well, ironic and nipping. This record also features important guests: Zef Noise and Mike III (Sweet Lizard Illtet, a Warner Bros crossover band from the '90s), plus the sound engineers coming from the collective Dysfunction, a name that most people into modern prog-rock should already know. The final song "Compression" is a completely reworked cover of an Anthony Phillips and Mike Rutherford (Genesis) old tune.

Questo è il sesto album della celebre band Rock Progressive Italiana, che all'epoca dopo le due release "Round Midnight" e "Songs From The Lighthouse" si impose come sicura realtà emergente in campo mondiale. 'Progressive Crossover', così potrebbe essere definito questo lavoro, date le influenze messe in campo.

La band, in completa libertà artistica, ha spinto sulla contaminazione stilistica senza snaturare le sue radici progressive, reinventando il genere proiettandolo al futuro.I testi, ironico/caustici sono perfettamente inseriti nella realtà odierna. Il disco si avvale della partecipazione di talentuosi ospiti tra cui Zef Noise e Mike Ill (provenienti dai Sweet Lizard Illtet, grande band crossover della Warner Bros nei primi anni '90) nonché dei sound engineers Dysfunction, un collettivo di tecnici del suono che si stanno ritagliando uno spazio di prestigio nel post rock moderno. Contiene inoltre una cover decisamente speciale e stravolta del brano "Compression", originariamente composto da Mike Rutherford e Anthony Phillips (Genesis).
