5 stars Lovely.

In Volo is like western, small story, though i have no idea what are they talking about. Psychedelic, dark. Weird backround, medieval flute, dramatic choirs here and there. Very sophisticated and musical yet narrative.

R.I.P. (Requiescant in Pace) is a rocker, but it has many good things. After half there's very delicate piano and the style changes after that, singing is powerful, it's like ballad. The end is powerful irrational psychedelic and heavy followed by piano with temperament. PS I always get a smile when he sings lance rotte, I always think it as Lanzarote (combined with R.I.P. - quirky enough to get you laugh)

Passagio is just a break, maybe man coming to play some hapsicord and to sing (there's walking sounds at the baginning and the end), interlude, nice but very short and I don't really care it.

Metamorfosi is very symphonic, dark, floating flooding flowing piece, still having heavy guitars and crazy psychedelic moments. With another long track, Il Giardino del Mago, it gives this album five stars (although they aren't maybe the most perfect songs... they're still MUST and very very good)

Il Giardino del Mago - it is just amazing how you can add so many different styles into a song. Again, this is a crying song, like many Italian Symphonic Prog songs are. Sometimes it's Zeuhl, Magma, bursting, psychedelic, heavy, happy, sad, angry, and delicate in one packet (or two, or fourteen ;) )

Traccia is a fanfare (with no brass... you know what i mean with "fanfare"), but more like battle song, evolving from In Volo (and continuing in Traccia II - well they are quite different..).

progressive | 5/5 |
