2 stars Modern Italian band with unquestionable talent, whose influences tend towards the early 70s classic Italian bands - a bit of PFM, Banco, Celeste, as well as the big British bands. This is a promising debut but, while passages show occasional independent flourishes, the songs themselves rarely hold my interest, and the mood swings are irrational. One of the few that is consistent is "Guardiano Dei Cieli", which reminds me of Franco Battiato somehow. The lengthiest track "La Strega" also has good energy and some cohesion, and Bruma is a good instrumental. "Lo Sguardo Nello Specchio" is has hot organ and flute interactions, but then the quality drops off for the most part. Another similar band in time, but ultimately with more compelling songs and melodies, is Foglie di Vetro, which released only one album in 1996. 2.5 stars rounded down because it probably doesn't have any tracks that would even be in my Italian top 100. Nice, but not nice enough.
