4 stars Another fine Italian album with a cover that is unforgettable. I'm surprised it ended up with some one and two star ratings. The playing is great and the vocals pretty decent too. The production seems on par and the sound on the Japanese CD is predictably quite good.

I can understand somewhat in that there is quite a bit less flair here than with some of its peers, but given that this was in the height of the classic period, they can't all be the best! But that is the downside here, this is less adventurous than some of the others you see reviewed often.

This album moves along quite easily with some recurring musical themes and always tasteful bass, acoustic guitar and keys backing up the vocal. But since it seems to grow on me I'm rounding up from a 3.5 star rating.

Bottom line here is that if you just want a sampling of classic Italian prog, skip this and go for the higher rated stuff. But if you are building a deep Italian catalog (and you really should be!) then you will need to track this one down. Try to get the Japan mini-lp sleeve version with the split back gatefold. The sense of humor shown on the cover continues on the inside!
