3 stars I seem to love this subgenre and Museo Rosenbach's latest was one more nice experience. They have been around for over fourty years and "Barbarica" is their third record, thirteen years since the last one. The cover shows a very coloured face in front of a purple, red and brown background. The album has a normal length and contains five tracks. We have seven musicians on this record: Stefano Galifi sings, Alberto Moreno plays bass and mellotron, Giancarlo Golzi drums, Sandro Livra plays guitar, Max Borelli plays guitar and sings, Fabio Meggetto plays keyboards and Andy Senis plays bass and sings.

The album has always everything you can creve from a band in this genre. It sounds professional and they do a greta job with the instruments. Perhaps I had wanted anything more from the compositions. Perhaps I will come back to this and rate it up one star. Right now three stars feels most fair. I felt I lacked originaity and progressivity in the music, as like the band were playing like the symphonic law book. But still it's very honest and nice. So this is a strong three star record.

All compositions are good so here we have an even record. "Il respiro del pianeta" was the most lengthy track and a nice one. The best though was "Abbandonati" and "Il re del circo". I also must say the main voice is great in this album even if I lack some form or uniqueness. The album is both symphonic and expressive. A fine exemple of nowadays prog rock. I think it's a record which will grow - call this review immature if you want. Worth checking out!
