3 stars Just like in their previous effort, this album starts really well. "Insieme Al Concerto" is the best track form this work. A wonderful song which brings us back into the best of their repertoire but adding these guitar sounds which are now well integrated into the band's music.

Songs are also longer than on "Smogmagica". At least this allows the band to dig further into the songs and to propose more complex ones. In this respect "In Ottobre" is another highlight. Since the beginning of "VeritÓ Nascoste", vocals are sublime. You could experience the same feeling with the great Giacomo (from Banco).

The title track is another of the good songs from this offering. Very much classic oriented thanks to these beautiful chord work, it is the most delicate part of this album. Almost four minutes of pure beauty completely opposite to "Vedi Amsterdam" which starts as an experimental track with lots of weird sounds. But after this first chaotic minute, the elements are put together and the listener gets another interesting number. Harder at times, it is also more upbeat. Not bad.

I very much appreciate the guitar work in the intro of "Regina Al Troubador". The mood is again more on the rock side but subtle vocal parts also relates this song with their traditional and beautiful style. A joyful and optimistic track. At least it sounds so (but I can't judge the lyrics). Another highlight featuring solid instrumental parts.

This might well be one of the best "Le Orme" album. No weak tracks so far. The beautiful vocal work on "RadiofelicitÓ" contrasts with its electro pop beat reminiscent of their previous work. But these moments are rather short to avoid this song to be ruined by these childish parts but the end is really ridiculous.

The candid "I Salmoni" has also this enjoyable savour so intimately linked with this genre. A simple structure and approach for this straight-forward soft rock song. And the upbeat "Il Gradino Pi¨ Stretto Del Cielo" closes this album on a high note again. A beautiful marriage between Italian subtlety and powerful rock beats. Very strong synth and bass work. A nice way to close this good work.

This album is not a masterpiece but it holds a collection of good songs and no blunder. Just short of the four star rating but would deserve seven out of ten as soon as this possibility will be available (which should be pretty soon now).

Three stars.
