5 stars Right album, wrong time. It´s the only explanation I have for such a beauty did not get the recognition it deserved at the moment it came out. One of the most well crafted algums of the 70´s symphonic scene, Italy or anywhere else. And I still think it´s a pity that this band did not make it as it should. The document they left is, nevertheless, one of the best symphonic prog albums of the decade and it came just in a time prog was dying fast. Oh, I wonder the impact this album would haved made if it would be released some five years earlier! This band would be HUGE! Still, they are in par to other Italy´s greats like PFM, Le Orme, Banco, etc.

It´s hard to review this CD when it is so perfect. Everything fits nicely, melodic and smooth, but never too sentimental or lame. Balance is the right word: melody, instrumentation, arrangements, vocals, all is balanced. The result is a masterpiece of prog music and one of Italy´s greatest albums ever. I won´t review every track, you must get this album and just listen to it carefully. Or not. The music will grab you anyway, or else you´re deaf!

If you want to know a masterpiece in melodic, beautifully played and sung, this is a must have. A timeless gem that more and more people are descovering at last. I myself only found out about it in 2003. Well, better late than never. 5 stars, no less!
