NewEARS Album Of The Month"The first track on Antropocene starts out as a hard Prog rock song, but adds some great melodic elements before cranking up the power level again. This first track is driven by some crunchy electric guitar, not so far from what Steven Wilson can offer. The next track ''Mediocraza'' pretty much stays in the same style and features some great vintage sounding keyboards. This is followed by ''Capitale Umano'' that introduces some cool saxophone. This one would not be that much out a place on a Van Der Graaf Generator album. It's only with the fourth track, the excellent ''Tempio Pallido'' , that the traditional melodic Italian Symphonic Prog appears. PFM would be proud of this one."
Il Rumore Bianco - Antropocene
2017 is just starting out but I can at least say that Antropocene is (for now) my best Prog album of the year... - M-PG
Essential Track: "The rest of the album continues to offer us a variety of styles and moods, often in the same track, the highlight for me being ''Il Giudice e Il Bugiardo'', a track I would compare to what Opeth has been doing in the last few years." - M-PG

In the story, underachiever Suzi loses her body and must make her way through a parallel world of the collective unconscious called Otherspace to get it back. But the road she must travel has been overtaken by shadows and chaos. In order to become whole again, Suzi must uncover the origins of this darkness, in a journey that takes her from the neon lights of her plasterboard horizon home to the bottom of a cursed river, where the fate of Otherspace and her own are inextricably linked.
Following the classic hero's quest in a modern urban setting, Heterotopia explores the themes of dystopia, dissociation, and the spaces we occupy - and how they interact with one another to create transformation.
