Twinspirits are a young new progressive band hailing from Italy and are full of ambition, about to present the world with their first studio album ambitiously titled "The Music That Will Heal The World". We have here exactly 70 minutes of diverse, mature, clean, melodic music that is indeed quite calming and pleasant to listen to in some kind of quite charming way. The first time I listened to this album throughout was while I was out by myself walking down some grass at the side of a river in the sun and I can't think of many better musical accompaniments I could have taken with me to enhance such a therapeutic session.

The album introduces itself with a four minute leading into the first two songs of the album "Back To Reality" and "What You Want" that are not exactly the fastest songs I have heard but this doesn't take anything way from the music as both the songs emit integrity and nicely help the album along to my favourite cluster of songs on the album. "Take My Hand" has a beautiful, relaxing guitar line to it and then "Power To Kill" shoots in being the most aggressive track on the album. We have a young guitar player here, at just nineteen years old Tommy Ermolli shows off some really great talents with his clean guitar playing sounding very mature indeed. Also the singer we have here is Danish man Søren Adamsen that at times doesn't sound incredibly dissimilar to Andre Matos, providing a good clear front to the band.

The songs here are long, we have two ten-plus minute tracks and nearly all the others are around the seven minute mark - but unlike some albums I have heard recently I don't cringe when I see the next track lasts over twelve minutes because although some bands long songs do drag on and get boring - Twinspirits keep the songs nice to listen to throughout and prevent them from becoming boring. This would be quite a nice album to aid someone just getting into progressive music, as the material here is quite accessible - it isn't mind-boggling and over-technical or over-progressive, but perfectly suited for a nice, pleasant listen.

This is somewhat of a calm, album that flows very well and delivers the good with each song but maybe if people come into this looking and expecting from the wrong perspective they may find themselves a little disappointed. This is a long album so anyone expecting some magnificent crescendo or apex may be let down as the album is a steady album that doesn't go out of its way to try and be the most glorious thing you have ever heard.

There are plenty more good points about this album than bad and I don't know about healing the world, but this is a very pleasant album for those calm, sunny afternoons and I would recommend it to people who are looking for this sort of music.

Got back to this in the car today...wasn't planning to listen to more than just one track, but when Soren started singing I just couldn't stop, and decided to just listen to the whole thing! Very fresh, original release.
