5 stars Simply beautiful! But after Dracula, not so surprising. I hate to compare bands or albums, but Stati is a kind of natural continuation of what PFM made during the 70's.

Stati is an instrumental album build on the proggy and sometimes psychedelic guitars of Franco Mussida and the always powerful drums by Franz Di Cioccio. Lucio Fabbri (violin) and Gianluca Tagliavini (keyboards) appears like guests but their contribution is really important to make this album a beautiful piece of classic Italian prog but with some renewed sounds, more athmospherical than other PFM albums and overall an album full of unforgettable sections.

Starting with the beautiful introduction of La terra dell'acqua and ending with the proggy final section of Visioni di Archimede, Stati turns into a essential album to any prog fan. More than a glorious return, Stati is another great piece of prog rock with the best elements from the 70's interlocked with the new sounds of the 00's... An enjoyable instrumental experience!
