This is not a second album of prog from Reale Accademia Di Musica but an album of soft rock songs by Adriano Monteduro backed by RADM.

The music is not too bad though; think of it as sort of an Italian James Taylor, CSN, or Bread album. Quality soft 70s rock with acoustic and electric guitar, piano, and decent vocals. Occasionally the music picks up and rocks a bit but mostly it's a chill-out affair. The vocals are very soft and pleasing, the guitar work delicate and the percussion competent where it is present.

The BMG mini-lp sleeve CD features a high-quality glossy gatefold album cover with an awesome Tolkien-esque fantasy painting of tree dwelling creatures in the forest. The album is only recommended to Italian collectors, fans of exceptional album art, and fans of Italian soft pop-rock music. It is good but it is definitely not what prog heads are looking for. Of course if you're like me you'll buy it anyway hoping against hope for more RADM. You'll get just a hint of a taste of their previous glorious album. For me personally, I think it's just charming enough to be a keeper.
