5 stars Every prog mucian must know the athmosphere, the sound and the geniality of this english work by Premiata Forneria Marconi. The work is a "compilation" of the first two album ("Storia di un Minuto" and "Per un Amico") but with new musical devices and lirycs in english. The comparing with the first two album is not unilateral. The amazing "River of Life" opens the work, with the amazing too classical guitar of Franco Mussida. Then you can find the english version of the tarantella "E' Festa", named "Celebration. The new song "Photos of Ghosts" is an exemple of perfection between armonies of ani strument. The instrumental "Old Rain" close the first face of the album. "Il Banchetto" opens the second face with lyrics in italian (God and PFM only knows why). Is the peak of the album. The second face is really the soul of the entire work. "Mr 9'till 5" is the insrumental remake of "Generale", with ironic lyrics by Peter Sinfield, the poet of King Crimson in early '70. The last track is "Promenade the Puzzle". I can't say and review this epical song... You must hear it!!! This album is highly recommended!!! If you can buy it in LP format you will hear really some kind of magic!!!
