Italian musician/vocalist Bernardo Lanzetti returns after ten years with his new solo album titled "Horizontal Rain." This album has been a few years in the making, with Lanzetti inviting some special guests to help with the recordings of his new set of songs. He begins his new album with the progressive rock assault of "Walk Away," which features legendary rock violinist David Cross (King Crimson) and bassist Tony Franklin (Blue Murder). The album continues with the distinct bass work of Tony Levin (King Crimson) on "Heck Jack," as the song explodes with a stellar guitar solo. The rhythm of "Genial" makes the album more funky, along with some great guitar work provided by Marco Colombo and Andrea Cervetto. The album finishes with the emotional ballad "Conventional," as well as the only Italian sung track "Ero un num Ero," along with the operatic choir highlight of "Different."
