La Rossa a forgotten and little known progressive act from early '80 from France with one album released in 1983 named A fury of glass, re issued on CD by Musea a decade after. This band is a curiousity for me, the line up was made by french and german musicians, the title of the album was in english and they were known in Tunisia for example, as much as in France, but in the rest of the Europe they were pretty much unknown. Anyway the music is quite great and eclectic, with influences from french prog school , from british school like Gentle Giant or Van Der Graaf Generator and from classical music aswell the result is a myriad of great moments with innspired songwriting. All pieces are short, I mean all are under 6 min, but each one brings the best in french scene around that time, pieces like Cosy chutte with ELP influence brings what La Rossa had best. Also their is a strong and energic rhythmic section and a good voice. All in all definetly a good towards great release in a period when prog was big time in the shadow of other genre. 3.5 stars for sure.
