3 stars The first song features gentle vocals, piano and acoustic guitar and then the drums and organ come in. The song ends with an uptempo country melody. Not a good start. "Come Due Bambina" has a good chorus with orchestral strings. "Ripensare a Lei" is a mellow song with acoustic guitar and fragile vocals. "Camelot" opens with marching drums and light classical keys. There are some good flute, keyboard interplay. "Noi Nel Bene, Noi Nel Male" has a great full sound and good harmonies in the chorus.

"Un Esistenza" opens with the sound building and then the drums come pounding in. It turns pastoral and the contrast of the pastoral and full sound continues. "Amore Non Amore" opens with strings, drums and keys that sound great. "A Cynthia" has a great chorus and again the pastoral and the full sound is contrasted. The final song is easily my favourite as the guitar finally stands out, I love the melody.

I do feel let down by this release, I was expecting more but it's still worth checking out.
