When I started to listen to this album, it catch my mind, because the music sounded pretty enjoyable and catchy at the first instance, and it reminded me to the Peter Gabriel years in Genesis, unfortunately this light similarity turns into a simple and plain copy. From the orchestration to the voice, the influence that the British group has over this italian musicians is so strong that they just couldn't hold it. The other thing that disappointed me is the fact that the lyrics are written in English. It's such a shame that, even when the italian is one of the most rich languages and having such representative bands that turn themselves into a legend into this genre, these guys have the need of doing the crossover when they have the oportunity of having a little bit of identity and originality if they have sung in their own language.

Not even the lyrics reflect some of the extensive folk that the italian culture has as the cradle of the renaissance that they are. In my humble opinion, the few things we can really rescue from this album is the excellent bass job and also the guitar has its good collaborations with some arrangements that increase the quality of this release.

I would really like to make a more extensive review as I usually do, but I think that this general description is enough to emphasize the poor creativity and the tasteless I had while I listen this record. I was really tempted to give it only 1 star, but after reconsidering I decided to add another star.
