4 stars A most beloved RPI title

Definitely one of the classics of the early 70s Italian scene. Alphataurus reside on the heavier side of things with perhaps some influence by the likes of Black Sabbath or Deep Purple. But while I believe there is some outside English influence they are wholeheartedly steeped in RPI passion with a fertile blend of symphonic and heavy-prog. The music is really quite good. Dramatic vocals, heavy dark riffs drenched in organ with fluid bass. Some spacier sections come and go throughout providing balance. The vinyl magic reissue does a nice job with the cover art, but as someone else mentioned, once you get the CD out you will never get it back into the slot. They made the case a bit too small it seems. Alphataurus has grown leaps and bounds on me since I first heard it and I've had to up my rating. Essential for RPI fanatics.
