5 stars 9.0/10 Incredible

I am really not a big fan of Le Orme's more intense tracks, and there are a couple on here, but this album has so many great melodic songs it well deserves this rating! Una Dolcezza..., Gioco..., Breve..., Figure..., and even Aspettando... are all amazing tracks on this album. La Porta and Alienazione just don't really do it for me. When I want Le Orme I want MELODY and beauty, something the band is so incredible good at! I guess there is a spot out there for someone loving the more intense stuff, but almost every album by them misses perfection because of this. I really do love this album, and can listen straight through without caring much about the two more intense tracks, they are still OK. When I hear the beauty found in Dolcezza... I am blown away, and wish it would just go on forever! The organ introduction, while pretty intense, is awesome because it isn;t drenched with wierd synth sounds and it actually a structured, balanced and downright badass melody. When that piano kicks off, though, you are swept away and this is what Le Orme had and should have expressed at all times! This album is great, the songs are really quite simple and beautiful, with some good experimentation going on but not enough to render this unlistenable, crazy prog garbage. I listened to this straight through time and time again while cleaning my basemeant one day, and it was pure peacefulness, so now it holds a special place in my heart! Check this out and enjoy!
