2 stars La Curva Di Lesmo first album (a project by Stefano Agnini from La Coscienza Di Zeno and Fabio Zuffanti from Finisterre, Höstsonaten & La Maschera Di Cera) is a marterwork... of how NOT to do 70's style Progressive Rock.

Formulaic to a point of being comic, with all the things that die-hard proggheads would want in an album, but not. You know, 3 songs, one of them with more than 26 minutes, concept album, all the superb and snob things Prog is known for, all in excess. But in La Curva Di Lesmo what we have is an album trying way too hard to be a 'classic' 70's Italian Prog and fails utterly for wanting to be modern, full of unecessary electronic beats and guest voices that doesn't even come close to deliver the perfect interpretation something like a concept album needs. Not to mention that instrumentation has no depth, no soul and sometimes sound as if it was recorded in the least professional place possible.

I don't like the way modern Prog is going, almost Pop, but albums like La Curva Di Lesmo don't help at all the classic Symphonic style. In fact they harm it, heavily.

Skip it.
