 I will not go into detail by mentioning what happens on every single one. All I can say is that music wise they move into the direction of the earlier mentioned Marillion. Some songs brought me back to the Fish-era and other songs reminded me of the albums the band made with Hogarth behind the microphone. Also the many Italian progressive rock bands of the seventies that paved the way for the next generations of Italian progressive rock bands can certainly be mentioned as an inspiration or influence, such as Goblin, who wrote many movie soundtracks themselves. I also have to mention the bands Premiata Forneria Marconi, Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso and Le Orme. I guess the musicians will only agree with me that without those bands RanestRane wouldn't be releasing the albums they made so far.
