5 stars Sometimes music really makes me happy, for exemple when I listen to Beatles, Genesis or Caravan and this morning when I discovered the Italian group Il tempio delle Clessidre. The band comes from Genova in Liguria and has been around since 2006. They made theri first record 2010 and now 2013 they released "Alienatura" which is their second one. As often when I hear music in this subgenre I didn't get disappointed with this one. The cover is colourful and exciting even if the picture here at ProgOrchives isn't sharp enough. The record features Elisa Montaldo(voice, keyboards, piano, organ, concertina), Giulio Canepa(guitars), Paolo Tixi (drums), Fabio Gremo (bass) and Francesco Ciapica(voice).

The full album is totally lovely. It starts with "Kaze(Ciò che il vento porta con sé)"(10/10) which is vital, unique and exciting. It happens so much in this music and the world seems to be so rich in instruments and colours. "Senza colori"(9/10) proves the vocalist is competent and I love the organ and guitar. "Il passo" (10/10) is a lovely symphonic piece and very varied and "Fino alla vetta"(8/10) is almost as good. "Onirica Possessione"(10/10) has a curious and very exciting sound. "Notturna" has feminine vocals and is lovely sung(9/10). The closer "Il Cacciatore" (10/10) is also one of the best tracks. You can't be tired of it when it happens new intriguing things all the time.

When the music contains everything I want with music I can't let it pass away without screaming out that I love it. When don't understanding Italian one can almost just image what they're singing about, but they're doing it very well. It's perfect they are singing in Italian, it's so weird when people from outside Britain or USA sings in English. I totally love the English language but why let that love kill the love for all the other languages. This is one of 2013's best records so far. Very recommended and five stars!
