4 stars I've always loved this album. Yes, I know it's not enough for you but it is going to be very hard for me to explain why. I'll try then. I believe it's more a question of feelings and emotions the music gives me. I know their early albums are classics but this one is somewhat special. It doesn't have epics of any kind, just 8 tracks that are incredibly harmonious, just like Uomo di Pezza. And at the same time they have a slight poppish feeling (like Smogmagica) and they also have an ounce of their future albums like Florian and Piccola rapsodia dell'Ape. Anyway, Tagliapietro's voice is as magical as ever. I guess this is the closest adjective I can find : Magical, definitely. Oh, did I mention this album contains my favourite Le Orme song ? : Se io lavoro. And believe or not, it actually has a disco feel to it. But don't worry progheads, this is deeply progressive : a fantastic organ and moog melody that virtually lifts you off into Heaven. If you think this review is too long, here's a shorter one : just get the album ! Forgot to mention the fantastic cover very much in the same taste as Uomo Di Pezza's.
silvertree | 4/5 |
