4 stars This is definitely an album to be considered when building a prog collection. The emphasis of this album is on the keyboareds, and more specifically the piano and the synths. The way Massimo IdÓ can play, accenting important notes and not overstressing virtuostic runs, is absolutely amazing. There's a captivating texture to the music that simply carries you away as you listen to it. In the sleeve, you'll find a note by one of the band members (can't remmeber which right now) explaining that the lack of organisation in the music was intentional and that it was the lack of unison between the members that allowed for such a solid work. Many would think this completely ridiculous, but if you look at ELP, or ANGLAGARD, it was the same situation. Each member brings his own style to the music and the result is a mix of Fusion, symphonic rock, and folk that is jsut splendid. In terms of the songs, "Prima Realta / Frammentaria Rivolta" is definitely the highlight, with a great interplay between keyboards and drums. There were no real downs to this album, only maybe that the vocalist sings too softly for my taste (compared to my fav Annie Haslam of course). All in all, a very solid work from this band who, for some reason, decided to halt all creative efforts after this work, making this one all the more worth purchasing.
