Prog Reviewer
4 stars Not as good as their first album called "Storia di un Minuto" or their "Per un Amico" album, but still good, deserving at least a four stars rating. In this album, the band did some experiments like the inclusion of a choir in the title song, which sounds good but not very related to the rest of the parts of the song. In this case, there are some songs which are better than the others. "Is my Face on Straight?", with socially critical English lyrics written by Peter Sinfield, is somewhat Heavy musically, but good. "La Luna Nuova" is very influenced by Italian Folk music in some parts, before becoming a very good Prog Rock song with complicated melodies played by the guitar and the synthesizer, plus very good performances by all the members of the band. The beautiful "Dolcissima Maria", a very melodic song played with acoustic guitars, keyboards and flute, plus a very good final part with drums and bass. "Via Lumiere" is more like a Jazz-Rock musical piece with very good bass guitar and guitars. This is an enjoyable album too.
