4 stars As I said in my review for "Zarathustra", I easily compare the careers (?) of "Museo" and "Locanda Delle Fate". I just hope that this album will be better than the come-back one from "Locanda" (which shouldn't be too difficult).

When you have a look at the line-up, the worse can be expected though. Only two original members. Will they be able to convey the spirit of the band ?

Well, I must say that from the very first notes, this album catches your attention and only leaves you when it is over. This album is short, but so powerful. Fantastically Italian proggy during the first three songs : convincing vocals, great compositions, great production, superb keys. I must be dreaming. So far it is a fabulous album. I really did not expect this. What a good surprise.

The first weak song is "Love". Sort of groovy / lounge type of song (especially in its intro). But I guess that it was not possible to continue as the album started. But "Museo" is back in business with the wonderful "Abbandonati". It is my fave of the album. Fully symphonic with lush keys and a great guitar solo (rare enough in their case to be mentioned).

The grandeur of this album just goes on and on because "Illuse..." is a symphonic jewel. So powerful, so emotional, so... great ! I can't help. I'm not the kind of guy who is obessed by complexity. So when a band performed straight -forward and pleasant music, I have no problems in applauding with all my heart & soul. And this is exactly what happens with this album so far.

"Il Re del Circo" is one of the most intricate songs from "Exit". Somewhat funky but extremely pleasant for most of it.Powerful vocals and a band at unison. Such nice moments are truely a gift offered to their fans. Exciting, powerful, ...Or is it just beautiful ?

The end of the album is not as strong but "Köln Raid" features convincing vocals and a superb guitar break while "Exit Sturm" is a pleasant acoustic instrumental track.

I am rather positive as far as the rating is concerned; but frankly I really like this album. Surprinsingly, it is almost confidential on PA. Almost no review. What happens guys ? Do listen to it. It is a good album. Maybe that some of you might think that four stars is a bit over rated but three is just too short to describe how I feel while listening to it.
