The Arches Wonderfully produced and mastered. Others have suggested similarities to a specific unmentioned artist, but these songs are so fresh and full of creative, expressive melodies and arrangements, the artist stands alone. Favorite track: Shining Boy.

Carsten Pieper The "core item" of Marco's
"Buy Digital Discography". Italian drummer/producer Marco Maggiore has to be a big Peter Gabriel fan (I am!) because many of the cuts presented here quite sound like PG himself (80s onwards).
Make sure to listen to this album on proper equipment - it's so much more rewarding then! Favorite track: Falling Down On Me.

Sven B. Schreiber (sbs) This is the problem with Bandcamp's one-dimensional wishlist: Sometimes I just lose track of great albums I've put there, because I'm adding a couple of items every day. Marco's excellent solo debut was buried there somewhere already much too long, but thanks to his generous 4th anniversary promotion, I was reminded of it. Heck, now I feel almost like a cyber criminal for downloading it nearly for free! ;-) Mille grazie, Marco, davvero... It's an open secret that many of the best prog composers are drummers - it proves to be true once again. This is freshly sounding, down-to-earth prog that's obviously written to be fun to the listeners. No pretentious attempts to showcase lofty academic aspirations - just good music with a human touch. Favorite track: Rising Sun.

Alex May A Singing drummer... WOW!!!
Beautiful Album!
very rich influences...!!!
Michael Manring is amazing and we all already know that...
but this album reminds me something about Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Robert Wyatt, Yes, Weather Report, Mahavishnu Orchestra, John Martyn...
waiting for new release for shure! Favorite track: Shining Boy.

My Eyes are open, and my heart is broken, thereʼs too much unspoken and itʼs falling down on me without protection, leaves me no direction, what a hard detention falling down on me I feel pushed to play out, what i just gured out, and i know it works out, but now itʼs falling down on me I canʼt nd the junction, to link the real to abstraction, itʼs a resounding action falling down on me Sometimes your passions, they grow like a cage Sometimes you canʼt face your demons, their grip is too strong ... but wake up, and face up to your fears...

Shining Boy 05:18
Can you hear me shining boy? Wherever you may be send me a message shining boy a guiding light that shines across this darkness and the sea something warm, healthy and so clear something just for me Stuck in the middle of a tricky situation it seems to me this time there’s no way out I think too much, i feel so low I’m like a boxer in the corner waiting for that moment Can you hear me shining boy? Wherever you may be send me a message shining boy a guiding light that shines across this darkness and the sea something warm, healthy and so clear something just for me i lost my friends, i lost my mind, the taste of your leaving made me colorblind i’ve no more dreams, i’ve no more truth i just go ahead with never look behind Can you hear me shining boy? Wherever you may be send me a message shining boy a guiding light that shines across this darkness and the sea something warm, healthy and so clear something just for me

Sometimes, when my love is safe under the ocean waves, and my mind within abbandoned places, the clouds dissipate, and then the old allucinations set the rythm of my life Sometimes, il peso di parole che non dirai mai è più grande delle frasi dette... quelle che hai non basteranno mai per dire a te e a tutti cosa sei... Sometimes, è meglio non cercare non scavarsi più... non andar più a fondo per cercare, qualcuno che, ci dia la forza di trovare chi ci ami più di noi... Sometimes, when i see the man i was, re ected by fuzzy pictures on that faded wall the clocks stop our time, and then i nd myself sorrounded by these beautiful “sometimes”

Pink Moon 03:54
