3 stars Some Prog purists might find this one quite dated and old-fashioned, hence my medium rating but (so far) one and only album by this Italian band is really a jewel for anyone loving flute-dominated heavier prog. The mood is mostly rather dark, at times aggressive with a few more mellow moments and the music is most of the times in up-tempo pace. Of course Tull comes to one's mind if listening to this record but due to the similar rough vocals as well country fellows Jumbo though certainly less complex than their music. But none of the six quite lengthy tracks gets boring at any moment and there arn't any fillers. Probably not really essential in a general sense and Progfans looking for something unique and innovative should check it carefully if it's of any interest for them before purchasing. Nevertheless I just can highly recommend it to anyone who's into 70's style prog folk! 3 1/2 stars REALLY!!
