Prog Reviewer
2 stars An incomplete album, not much more than a collection of demos, released two decades after it was recorded. There's little of the heaviness that marked their first album, this being a far jazzier workout. The loss of BAVARO, the vocalist from their eponymous first album, has hurt the band, and the sound here, while not unpleasant, is directionless and lacks real passion. For those looking for yet another keyboard-driven album from the early 70s this fits the bill, but it simply does not compare to the band's debut. 'Valigie di Terra', in particular, is a montage of disparate themes, never quite gelling despite furious playing and excellent musicianship. 'Idea Incomputia's main bass riff (starting at 1:05) is notable as being strikingly similar to the MOODY BLUES' riff used in 'I'm Just a Singer in a Rock and Roll Band'. Weird, that. The album's best track, 'Claudette', lifts the record to two stars.

Wonderful album cover though.
