Prog Reviewer
5 stars This is the only album that I have listened from BANCO, and I agree with previous reviewers: this is one of the best combinations of Rock with Jazz and Classical music styles. This album is one of those albums which sound to me like "musical journeys". I prefer the "side two" of the L.P. (tracks 5, 6 and 7 in the C.D.). Track 7 ("Né più di un Albero non meno di una Stella") is a musical piece where the jazz rock influences are more clear. Track 6 (" Nei Suoni e Nei Silenzi ") is played mainly by the orchestra, and track 7 ("Di Terra") has a very good, very "Classical music" arrangement, with an excellent piano. From start to finish, this album is very enjoyable. But I was surprised when I saw in one T.V. broadcast (I think that it was one of the San Remo song festivals, in 1985) Banco playing and singing a very pop song as guests of the festival. As other prog bands of the 70s, this band also had their "pop years". But this "Di Terra" album is very good.
