Superb. L'oceano Delle onde che Restano onde per Sempre is an album sure to win the heart of any instrumental music fan, and Neil On Impression by extension are deserving of spotlight attention: leaps and bounds ahead of so many bands that keep remaking the same flawed record.

Sometimes albums that aren’t completely innovative seem to strike with an astounding force; Neil on Impression may not bring anything brand new to the music table, but their complex melange of genres and expert blend of string instruments takes them one step closer to compositional perfection. Throughout the album, the listener gets the feeling the band has a strict agenda they stick to, as they flawlessly deliver each note and integrate delicate and sophisticated touches of classical into crisp, utterly powerful, and epic post-rock pieces. For those looking for a sound stripped of all artificiality, be sure not to miss this gem. (Top 3 Albums of 2008 - The Silent Ballet)
