4 stars Fun stuff.

This is a very good band from Italy. This album most frequently sounds like an Italian Magma playing Mahavishnu style songs painted with Zappa humor textures. The vocalist has very Vander-like inflections, strong operetic vibratos sung in Italian. Keyboards are very strong with overdriven Rhodes and B3 with occasional grand piano and Moog breaks. The guitar is a lightly distorted mix of electric tones. Occasional violin smacks of Goodman and Ponty. This band is not afraid to put up the funk other. The percussionist is very versed in differing styles.

Very raw and entertaining progressive jazz/rock fusion. Highly recommended. 4.1 Stars.
