(53:33, MaRaCash Records)
The Italian band SUBMARINE SILENCE was formed by Moongarden keyboardist Cristiano Roversi back in 1996, and made their debut 5 years later with a self-titled album that was met with positive reviews and comparisons towards Genesis first and foremost. "There's Something Very Strange in Her Little Room" is their second full-length production, released by the Italian label MaRaCash Records in the summer of 2013. Fans of Genesis, Camel and 90's neo-progressive rock will find much to enjoy on this disc. Fairly smooth compositions with a vast array of layered keyboards with Mellotron support are the order of the day throughout, complete with dreaming guitar soloing, and with a conceptual storyline explored to boot. The lead vocals aren't quite top notch and the mix somewhat oddly balanced at times, but even so this is a pleasant album. "There's Something Very Strange in Her Little Room" may be a tad too smooth to really engage on a deeper level, but it is an effort well worth exploring by those who enjoy keyboards-dominated smooth progressive rock of the symphonic variety. Especially those amongst that crowd who have a soft spot for 80's neo progressive rock.
