2 stars Remember the "Love Boat" theme? Not the lyrics...just the music. Well, take the "Love Boat" theme music, jazz it up and rock it out (Fusion it up!)...and you have Il Volo. "Essere O Non Essere" is predominantly an instrumental album which I loathed. This may not be my cup of tea, but I can see it a whole lot people on this site that might enjoy it. Plenty of string-synth and quite a bit of percussion. Vocals are very PFM-ish a la "Per Un Amico"(an album that I love). I give this album a 2 star rating for rubbing me the wrong way, but 3 stars for "worth checking out". Italian prog.rock fans should seek out it at a reasonable price, but I wouldn't pay more than $10.00 for it. Check the used bins or second hand shops on-line.
