4 stars This is an interesting album that was not intended to be an album at all. It was a series of musical scenes written to be performed for an opera or a concert, however it has become a bit of a beacon within the vault of the 'Rock Progressivo Italiano' archives. A mix of fluttery flutes and busy bass lines with a synthesized, symphonic approach, which is characteristic of the Italian prog sound and features heavily on this record. A great listen. Some beautifully orchestrated transitions which mark the sections or scenes of the story. The junctures of traditional styles with Progressive/Avant-Guard Rock makes it an interesting listen. Although i recognize the comparisons drawn to other Progressive rock artists from the UK, i try and keep my mind open to the notion that these musicians were exploring the sounds available to them. And given the time and place, this is an extraordinarily creative album and offers a weighty contribution to Italian Progressive Rock. Fantastic gravelly vocals, great brass and flute sections. A couple of tedious and predictable moments let this one down a little and prevent it from being truly groundbreaking amongst its contemporaries but overall, a gem!
