5 stars Considered by many as the ultimate 70's Italian symphonic/progressive rock album,MUSEO ROSENBACH's ''Zarathustra'' was released in April 1973.The band was formed in 1971,when two other acts ''La quinta strada'' and ''Il sistema'' joined forces,while at the same time the members were discovering the early 70's progressive rock wave.At the end of 1972 they were signed by Ricordi label and a few months later ''Zarathustra'' came out.You won't believe the unique experience you'll taste listening to this album.It is filled with endless changing tempos and climates,characterized by the heavy guitar playing,the stunning symphonic keyboard work (mainly Hammond organ and mellotron),the jazzy frenetic rhythm section and the harsh,deep vocals of singer Stefano Calliffi.Especially the sidelong self-titled epic track is the absolute definition of energetic,dynamic and high-class Italian symphonic progressive rock.Unfortunately,at the time of its release the album went widely unnoticed due to its dark atmosphere,the cover and the Nietzsche-inspired lyrics (coming from his ''Superman theory'').Do not commit a crime by passing by this work.We are talking about a masterpiece of music here with top-notch musicianship and a haunting atmosphere!A prog rock classic!
