5 stars This is some of the most beautiful music I have ever heard. The waves of mellotron wash over the delicate soundscapes of acoustic guitar, warm, soft vocals, flute and piano melodies.There are some drums, sax and violin, as well as other instrumentation creating heavenly sounds.

"Principe Di Giorno" opens with mellotron as violin,piano and vocals come in. Flute and acoustic guitar follow and 2 minutes in the sound is gorgeous as the drums and mellow vocals create an awesome uplifting melody. Some nice sax melodies later in the song. "Favole Antiche" opens with some strange noises then mellotron, vocals and flute come in. 2 minutes in more mellotron and drums and we can hear voices in the background. Some majestic church organ comes in and a vocal melody followed by soft vocals and acoustic guitar. Piano melodies close out the song.

"Eftus" features more mellotron, flute, acoustic guitar and vocals. "Giochi Nella Notte" opens with flute, acoustic guitar, piano and drums. Piano and sax melodies along with flute round out the song. "La Grande Isola" sounds so beautiful with the vocals, drums, sax, flute and mellotron. I know I sound like a broken record but this is amazing ! "La Danza Del Fato" opens with bells as flute, piano and vocals follow. "L'imbroglio" is just over a minute long with flute, violin and acoustic guitar leading the way.

I think everyone should own this classic Italian album. I love my "Metal" but this is like a warm summer breeze that can't be put into words. You just smile and enjoy it.
