4 stars AlieNatura is Italian progressive rock at its best. Reading the biography of Il Tempio delle Clessidre you asume their music will be something between Museo Rosenbach and Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso, and yes you are quite right but that is not all, there is a lot more to be excited about this band.

An album about how humanity looses their bond with nature is a great concept, I really like finding albums such as alieNatura where the work that has been done is very serious, not only music wise but concept and lyric wise. The cover art is also pretty good.

Elisa Montaldo as a keyboardist, vocalist and founder of the band has been an interesting discovery to me, I do not know many progressive rock female leaders, I am not being sexist, its a fact when it comes to my collection and It made me search for more bands driven by a female musician.

Other reviewers already pointed that the job Francesco Ciapica (replacement for vocals) isn't the best but nonetheless is quite impressive, I think that if the band progresses into mixing Francesco and Elisa vocal sections with more parity the result will be more than satisfactory. I have listened to "Il Centro Sottile" and I enjoyed alieNatura a lot more and even after reading specialists and collaborators reviews I still think that alieNatura is better.

Guitars and drums sounds VERY 70's but what is great about this is that keyboards on the other hand sounds modern; mastering nowadays permits electronic sounds to blend a lot better with guitars than it used to be in the past so I am happy to be able to grasp a sound from the past "updated" to 2014!

Highly Recommended!
