Edith - A Space Between Ever and Never (1989)
The debut album from this Italian band.
The band was a quartet with a lineup of bass, tambourine, percussion, drums, guitars and vocals.
A guest musician provided keyboards and samples.
This band released three studio album and one live album before they gave up. There is also a live video with the band on VHS or DVD.
The band cannot be put in the RPI label at all. This despite of their music being melodic.
The music on this fifty minutes long album is neo-prog. Neo-prog in the early 1980s English scene vein. Pendragon springs to mind.
The sound is pretty thin and lacks a lot of muscles. The vocals is really poor too.
There are some green shoots of good details on this album. But most of it is barely decent and I can understand why this is an obscure band.
The reason is that their albums, and this is supposed to be their best one, is sorely lacking in quality.
This is a decent album and perhaps one to avoid. Collectors of Italian prog rock will need this album, I am afraid.
