5 stars di pił, di pił, di pił...

What could I say? What could I add about this album? It's really interesting to know a not-English-version of symphonic rock. Italian people are very emotional people... I descend from Italian families. I know what I'm telling about. They are very expressive people, so their music is really 'hot-blooded' and passionate music.

'Per un amico' is one of the 'most perfect' albums that I've heard. It's an inspirated album. The musicians are very skilled. I really love the counterpoints and the atmospheres at this album. Also, the variety of sounds is outstanding. I love "Appena un po'" and "Per un amico" but the complete album is awesome.There is an important influence from the Renaissance (music from 13th, 14th, 15th Centuries).

(1) Appena un po': amazing work... spanish guitar, flute,... beatiful... and then, electric instruments, drums... and a fourious violin./(2) Generale: incredible instrumental track, very complex and inspirated work. I'd like to listen to this track by a prog-metal band!/(3) Per un amico: a lovely song. I love it. ...di piu..../(4) Il Banchetto: very nice song, the most experimental from this album... listen to the synths and their climaxes! and... what an awesome piano!!!/(5) Geranio: another experimental strange work, just listen to it.

5 stars. You have to get your own "Per un amico". Maybe, it's in my top 5 of symphonic rock.
