5 stars This is probably Le Ormes most prestigious record ever. And rightly so. It took me a long time to get this album, although it was very popular among progheads in Brazil during the 70s. Even though I share with Sean Trane a certain dislike for this kind of trio (Keyboards - bass - drums), Le Ormes work is so powerful I always had to make an exception (along with Triunvirat).

Le Ormes greatness lies basicly in the fact that the band has a unique chemistry: band members are extremely skillful, but the sum is bigger than its parts. And the songwriting is the focal point: far from just fooling around showing off their technique, they are much more concerned in producing fine music together. Besides, the group also have in Aldo Tagliapietra a stunning singer, which makes all the difference from many other trios.

The Music in Felona E Sorona is not as accessible as their earlier work, it takes some time to get used to, but once you get it, youre hooked. The melodies are memorable, its a labor of love and inspiration. The arrangements are great and the bands sound is very tight. Its really hard to believe its only 3 guys playing. It may be a little short for todays standard (only 33:39), but what a beautiful short piece of music! The quality is absolutely top notch. The right production also helps a lot.

One of the best releases of the 70s, no less. It helped stabilish Italy as one of the best sources of prog music in the world. Even today Felona E Sorona stands as a major piece of worlds prog rock. A classic album that anyone interested in symphonic prog music (italian or otherwise) should have.
