Prog Reviewer
4 stars This is a very good Progressive album by this band.They spent some time living in the U.S. They met Bernado Lanzetti, who also lived some time in the U.S., so he didn`t have problems singing in the English language.The lyrics for this album were originally to be written by Peter Sinfield, but he declined, because some lyrics criticize the U.S. lifestyle and politics, so the lyrics were written by the members of the band, with some help from Marva Jan Marrow in two songs. This album is very enjoyable. There are a lot of melodies in the songs. Side One of the old L.P. (tracks 1, 2, 3) are the best part of this album. After this album, they still recorded one album for the English language market, before returning to Italy to concentrate in lyrics written in the Italian language and for the musical market of their own country.There are diferences in the cover art between the U.K. and the U.S. releases and the Italian release. In the Italian release, the songs are credited to individual composers only, not credited as composed by the whole band as in the U.K. and U.S. versions.
