3 stars "Istinto" is the first album by Conqueror, an interesting Italian band from Sicily. This debut album was self-produced by the band and perhaps the sound quality is not flawless, but you can find here some very interesting ideas... The music draws on the Italian "prog-masters" of the Seventies like BMS, PFM or Goblin, but the song-writing is good enough and the soaring melodic voice of Simona Rigano gives a touch of "lightness" to the compositions...

In my opinion, on this work there are just a few excellent tracks like the dreamy "Quartar", the quirky "Porte straniere" and the long instrumental "Entropia", but the overall quality is not bad at all... Lyrics are a little bit "naive", as if the words were suspended "among the clouds of a dream" but they perfectly fit a music that seems desperately trying to "break through the barriers of time"...

On the whole "Istinto" is a good album but not an essential one... If you are not familiar with this excellent band I suggest starting with "Storie fuori dal tempo" or "74 giorni"...
