5 stars Uomo di Pezza is a great album from Le Orme. I might actually like this one better than Felona e Sorona. The ablum is not as dark as Felona e Sorona; in fact, it is quite varied in terms of types of songs. There are slower songs, light-hearted songs, darker songs, and songs that rock. There is actually quite a bit of acoustic guitar here, but the keyboards are still the main attraction. I think that the drums are great too; not overly fancy or complex, but just right for the music. My favorite tracks are Una dolcezza nuova, La porta chiusa, Figure di cartone, and Aspettando l'alba. The other tracks are good as well, with the last track Alienazione being my least favorite. It is an instrumental in the same vein as the last track from Felona e Sorona (the name escapes me at the moment), except the one from Felona is much better in my opinion. Alienazione starts out strong but then kind of gets lost in the middle section with a lot of uninteresting keyboard solos. It's not a horrible song, but the rest are so much better. Despite the weak ending, this is a great album, probably one of my favorite. It has a lot of variety and is very emotional in some parts. I think that Aldo has a great voice, one of the best in all of progressive rock. I would say that Uomo di Pezza is essential, especially if you enjoy any Italian symphonic rock.
