3 stars Excellent musicianship that of New Trolls band members. That's something you can always expect from Italian Prog bands. At the time of this release, we were enjoying what many would deem the climax of music creativity of all times, an explosion of sounds and styles that we would never see again. Amongst the experimenters, this New Trolls were experiencing with classic orchestral instruments and contemporary electronic ones. The music does not have a predetermined audience; if you like it, keep it. It is not easy to blend a classic violin and a Hendryx guitar and come out unharmed of the adventure. These guys did it quite well. This album has some interesting short pieces of such blends, and a much more digestible 20 min long improvisation including sounds a la Soft Machine, a band that was a reference for creativity and possibly the pioneer of it all back in 68. That track includes an 8 min long drum solo amongst the best of that period. An interesting album that you'll listen moe than one time if only to reassure yourself that what you just heard was indeed possible.
