Lost at sea. A long time to be adrift. This collection of songs from Italy's Conqueror is a very accessible piece of music. Almost impossible not to like. I actually gave this one as a gift recently to a friend who is definitely NOT a prog fan, but more of a pop music fan. This is the kind of album that can appeal to anyone. The songs are generally a light rock music played with impeccable skill. Every track is full of melody and beauty and there are ever present tasteful rhythm sections, acoustic guitar, flute, piano, and some decent electric lead work. The female vocals are in Italian and are of average quality. She sings with character but has a somewhat limited range. I don't mean that as an insult, I think she does a nice job anyway. The arrangements are very good, each song moves along well with multiple sections of interest within. The downside of the album is that while each track has pretty moments, there is a certain politeness to this material that makes it just a little too easy going for me at times. I would recommend the title to anyone looking for mellow and melodic modern rock with talented instrumentalists. It is undeniably good, but for me it is something I confess I will play very little because it just doesn't grab me emotionally like I need music too. 74 Giorni is perfect music for a vacation when you're sitting on a balcony somewhere staring at the see and enjoying a drink with your SO. But as a demanding prog listener who craves a certain high from music in my daily life, Conqueror doesn't provide enough of it. And yet it is certainly "good" so 3 stars straight up is the verdict.
