"INNER PROSPEKT is the project of the keyboardist of MAD CRAYON. Allessandro also worked on SAMURAI OF PROG with tones often inspired by those of Tony BANKS for synths, mellotron and keyboards, all decked out with electronic drums to give a more modern sound.


This is his 11th album which comes out on a jazzy, symphonic, bluesy and intimate variation, giving pride of place to keyboards of course. An ersatz MAD CRAYON or an evolution of its style? ,  let‘s take a closer look:


"Glimpse" and an orchestral intro to begin with an aria on the piano, a dark melody with the shivering violin then it starts with a jazzy atmosphere with an intimate organ, a pleasant appetizer and a dissonant final arpeggio. "Soul of Hundred Lives" and the 17-minute centerpiece, sweet symphonic intro, crescendo keyboards, the voice reminiscent of Robert WYATT, soft, melancholy then it goes up again, the nervous guitars arrive, make sense then that rises again with a hard limit riff, synthetic percussions immediately tempered by its clear, captivating synths; an epic track with its many breaks, a delicate break towards the 10 ‘more Génésisienne then it starts again in a more gradual way; a little clarinet, violin to throw a little spleen before a final energetic bluesy, jazzy, fruity strobe and a bewitching South American guitar.


"King of Spades" composed for the SAMURAI OF PROG, the sax à la SUPERTRAMP to begin with, it sounds good jazz New Orleans, go a bit of the pink panther at the end; well the voice is there a real copy / paste of that of WYATT, melting tune, the guitar surfing on the hackettian notes of GENESIS; it suddenly turns into an explosion of notes and a bucolic guitar solo bringing this title high; every now and then I rediscover the softness and delicacy of Antony KALUGIN‘s climates with an assumed symphonism; soft piano and sax final.


"Why Me? "Intimate, fresh 12- string intro, spring spleen before the blossoming of the warming sun, I keep it bucolic, romantic! A bit of GENESIS, a bit of the "Interstellar" soundtrack; a piano, a whispered voice for a melody with a catchy bass, "Rock Bottom" hits me with its memories; a gentle break before the high-pitched synth arrives, piercing you, reminding you that prog is definitely not dead and is reborn; the violin solo is just divine, symphonic which brings back to a famous rhyme, the drums which imposes and reminds that we are well in 2021. Title which melts for the injection of musical memories and it is not the final explosive pleasure that will contradict.


"Abby‘s Escape" and a jazz-bluesy tune to begin once upon a time, the rhythmic bass, the voice here draws on that of the archangel; GENESIS energy period 75-76 emerges; Allesandro has a blast with his twirling, melancholic and intuitive synths; a shimmering melody, an intimate, dark, depressive tune just before getting back in hand, one more oxymoron here; smooth final with piano and strings to recover from the trip, an immense title here which may leave you stunned by its reminiscent melody.


"White Skies" originally composed for his 2014 album "Dreaming Tony Banks", said it all! Soaring orchestral, symphonic keyboards associated with the numbing voice of Allessandro again over that of WYATT (yes it is hers, but it reminds me of it!); it makes me want to immerse myself in the original album; the voice gives way to the always melancholy violin immediately gripped by a nervous guitar-synth riff which gives hope to the title, bringing clods of symphonic sounds and unearthing divinely sweet harmonies; Mellotron amplifies spleen; it is a complex progressive track in its musical twists and turns, the final guitar solo starting with a symphonic SANTANA sound.


"The Knight and the Ghost" composed for The GUILMASTER last year; guitar arpeggio, melancholic voice sprinkled with recent percussions, which gives a current sound, far from the retro-regressive; dark violin giving in latency, a guitar solo like spaghetti film strip all at once, the progressive evolution of the title, paf GENESIS just before "Ripples", in short we feel the spleen of the beginning of the end of the history; the sounds are set in motion with the various instruments, it becomes fireworks, it starts everywhere, it goes up it starts again, it melts in any case and it is not the piano and this jazzy-bluesy violin of the end that will contradict.


"The Queen of Clubs (bonus track)" for Rafael from GUILDMASTER and Giuseppe on sax on a light ambient jazzy variat

PROGCRITIQUE - 5/5




"There is no doubt that Alessandro di Benedetti, master builder of Inner Prospekt, is a talented composer / multi-instrumentalist. "Canvas Two", is a top quality, melodic, progressive, and superbly well executed album!"
Lush Landscapes, Plentiful Passions.




Alessandro Di Benedetti as INNER PROSPEKT has delivered another gem of crossover progressive music, tugging at the heart as well as the mind. My rating: 4 sparkling stars.
